I had a book signing at Barnes and Noble in Plymouth Meeting, PA on Saturday, and it was tremendous fun! I want to give a big shout-out to Heather (pictured with me there) for her bubbling enthusiasm and for making me feel like a rock star! Also to the barista that made me an incredible cup of chai. And of course, a round of thanks to all the readers who showed up to chat and to get their books signed.
This was my second author event, and let me tell you . . . it still feels surreal. But great!
This weekend, I’ll be at Barnes and Noble in Wyomissing, PA. Stop by and wish me Happy Birthday!
In you’re in the Philly area, come on out to Barnes & Noble in Plymouth Meeting, PA at 1pm on Saturday, April 1st! I’ll be signing copies of TRAVELER, and you can enter to win a chance at a prize pack with an autographed copy and other goodies!
Reader Oshani asks:
Can you give me a clue about when we can expect DREAMER [the sequel to TRAVELER]?
And Reader Kaylee asks:
What’s going to happen in DREAMER?? I have to know!!!
Here’s the scoop –
As far as I know, DREAMER is breaking in Feb of 2018. That is subject to change, depending on publishing schedules, but tentatively, that’s the date. And as for what’s going to happen – well, I can’t give everything away, but here’s a vague synopsis: Continue reading
I’m hammering away at my next manuscript, and I’ve started using post-it notes as a way to keep myself on track as I’m getting through a scene or a chapter.
You see, I have a bad habit of knowing where I want something to build and then meandering off a bit, which only creates stuff I have to slice later, or rearrange once I’m into my edits. I’ve found that if I pick a word – just one word – it helps me focus.
Oh, you guys . . .
The three new stories I have percolating are now down to two – mostly because story 3 just doesn’t have all the elements together yet and stories 1 and 2 are more fully-formed in my head. Now I have to decide which I move forward with. Continue reading
In TRAVELER, we meet many versions of Jessa and Finn as we slide in and out of alternate realities. In this scene, Finn is newly arrived at Jessa’s school, and her Creative Writing teacher has set an assignment – make up a story about the new guy.
She puts the marker to the whiteboard and writes Finn’s Story.
“So,” she says. “Finn’s story. Begin!”
I look over at him conspiratorially, wondering just which Finn he’s going to pick to be. He gives me a sly look, and then so I can’t see what he’s doing. I shoot him a mean look in return, and I write. Continue reading
That’s right! In addition to my signing at Barnes & Noble in Plymouth Meeting, PA (suburban Philadelphia) on April 1st, I’ll also be appearing at Barnes & Noble in Wyomissing, PA on April 8th at 1pm!
Stop by and see me and drop your name in my drop box for a chance to win a goody pack that includes a $25 Amazon gift card, a signed copy of TRAVELER, and some other fun stuffage!
Now that TRAVELER is out and hopefully being read at a steady rate, I thought it might be fun to share some behind-the-scenes trivia. Some of this stuff will be familiar if you were among the early beta readers at SwoonReads.com, but at least one of these tidbits will surprise you: Continue reading
