The most exciting day of the year

Tuesday, March 20th, means…

… that Spring is finally here. It snowed on and off all day yesterday.

BH will be monitoring the melting daily. As soon as the last bit of snow is gone, I’ll make the announcement and choose the winner.

… that TWISTED is officially launched!!! Yee-haa!!! You can buy it in a bookstore today! Please read it and tell me what you think.

… that the TWISTED podcast is up on my website. (Thank you, theoblack!)

… that ShelfLife is celebrating one of my heros, Judy Blume.

… because my book tour starts today! I leave for the airport in a couple of hours and will spend the rest of the day flying south. Cross your fingers that the suitcase stays with me.

I will be blogging daily from the road. Here is tomorrow’s schedule:

  1. cute picture 🙂 looks cold. it’s 70 here in NC

    if i were to buy the book can i send it to you just so you can grace it with your presence…and signature?

    btw, i love the cover!

  2. Good luck! I cant wait to pick it up and give it a read!!! If you ever come near portland or around Oregon somewhere, post it here and I shall be first in line!!!!

  3. I’m on my way out to pick up my copy now!

    When I opened my B&N members email this morning I found a lovely coupon for Twisted. Did you know they were going to promote it like that?

  4. I just wanted to say that I loved Twisted. I received an advance copy of the book because I have a small website devoted to teen reading. You can read my review here if you’re interested.

  5. I will be speaking at the Multnomah County library (not sure which branch) during Teen Read Week in October. Is that close?

  6. I can’t wait to read Twisted!!! What a wonderful gift, now that report cards are done!!! My students, colleagues, and I LOVE your writing….when will you be back to the Syracuse area? Good luck on your trip!

  7. I go home on April 1st, but then I’ll be leaving again – April is busy.

    My Syracuse area signing will be at River’s End Bookstore in Oswego on April 28th.

  8. I ran out and picked up Twisted on Tuesday and read through it that night (another person who forwent sleep in favor of reading!) and it’s definitely a powerful, fantastic book. I’ve already loaned out my copy to a friend so he can read it before we attend your book signing in Ann Arbor, MI next week (we’ll be the future English teachers in attendance – I know I, for one, will be promoting the book in my classroom when I get one!). We’re definitely looking forward to it!
