I’ve been blogging for over a decade, and alas, it’s time for me to retire my blog and transition to a newsletter-only format. I’ll still be sharing the same kind of news and information there (and it’ll only be every couple of months or so, just like it’s been here), so I hope you’ll consider subscribing! This newsletter will be my place to share book updates, insider information, and giveaways. If you want to know what I’m up do, that’ll… Keep Reading
You guuuuuuuyyyyyyyysss. You want to see something cool? Like, super duper DUPER cool? Of course you do. Go to my publisher’s site and you can vote for the cover you like best for my book! There are three options, and next to each one you can vote by giving it one, two (you get the idea) or five stars. The cover with the best rating will be the cover direction for Match Me If You Can! Note: these are cover… Keep Reading
Hey guys! Super quick post to let you know I have a new literary agent! I’ve signed with Eric Smith at P.S. Literary Agency, and he’s pretty awesome if I do say so myself. If you’re on Twitter, you should follow him there, especially because he has the cutest baby/wife/dog/family ever and he gives lots of great info for anyone interested in YA books. Hope you’re all doing great! What’s the update in your lives?
Well hello there! I just wanted to pop in really quick to let you know my book now has a new title! MATCH ME IF YOU CAN If you want to read more about how the title came to be, you can head on over to the Swoon Reads blog, where I talk (and gush) about it some more. ALSO, you can find Match Me If You Can on Goodreads and add it as To-Read, because that would make me… Keep Reading
Hey you. Yes you. Want to help come up with my book’s title? It’ll be fun, I promise. Head over to the my publisher’s site and leave a comment with your suggestions! There’s a handy synopsis there for those of you who want to play, but who have no idea what my book is about. The only caveat is that I’m pretty sure you’ll need an account to leave a comment. But hey, if you don’t want to create an… Keep Reading
I’ve been keeping a secret … My book is going to be published by Swoon Reads under Feiwel and Friends, an imprint of Macmillan! You guys. Seriously. I have no words to express how ridiculously happy this makes me! As many of you know, publishing is a crazy-hard industry to break into and it’s not like my path to publication has been a walk in the park. I’ve been writing for years. I’ve sent out hundreds of queries. I’ve gotten SO CLOSE so many… Keep Reading
If you’re subscribed via email to my blog, you may have noticed that you kept getting old posts delivered to your inbox. Not cool. Feedburner (the email client I used) was misbehaving, so I gave it the boot. The first time it happened, it was because I transferred by blog from http to https – meaning everything is now all secure. Yay! So it re-indexed my entire site and thought everything was new, because the URL now had an S… Keep Reading
There’s too much stuff going on in my own life and online for me to keep up with it all. So, I’m going to be taking a break from all things social media/blogging/Internet for a bit. If any of you sign with agents, get book deals, or do something exciting, please email me about it! I’d love to freak out with you!
Hey guys and gals! If any of you tried accessing my blog over the weekend you might have noticed it was going through some changes. Some links might not have worked. Some of you may have even gotten emails from my subscription feed, or seen an “update” in your RSS reader with a post you’ve already seen. Sorry about that! However, it was all for a good cause, since now my site is all on WordPress! And hopefully I haven’t… Keep Reading
YOU GUYS!! Do you know how long I’ve waited to write this post? Gah! FOREVER! Or so it seems. But at long last, I can finally say that I am now represented by Rachel Marks at Rebecca Friedman Literary! The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind for me with lots of decisions. I had an offer to publish with a mid-sized publisher, an agent offer on the table, several calls with different agents and a dozen or so… Keep Reading
