Happening in April

No April Fool's, I really did sell my second YA, STREET CREED, with "wows" from my editor!

Thanks to everyone for cheering with me!

STREET CREED is slated for Fall 2011...which seems like so far away right now. On the other hand, the TELL ME A SECRET launch is just a couple of months away now...eek! I'm not sure I'm ready for actual readers, though it's gotten pretty amazing responses so far!

This months' Story Secrets are already hopping with a visit from Sydney Salter, and upcoming with Lauren Oliver (BEFORE I FALL), Josh Sundquist (JUST DON'T FALL), Deb Caletti (THE SECRET LIFE OF PRINCE CHARMING), and Holly Schindler (A BLUE SO DARK)...

And don't forget, you can still enter to win SWOON AT YOUR OWN RISK before 5pm PST today!

Speaking of Deb Caletti, she's our featured author over at readergirlz this month with THE SECRET LIFE OF PRINCE CHARMING! I hope you'll join us for our live chat with her:

AND...! It's OPERATION TEEN BOOK DROP! This is our third year of teaming up with publishers, YALSA and GuysLitWire to get 10K books/year into the hands of teens – for the first two years, we spread the book love in children’s hospitals across the country, and this year we are getting books to Native teens all over. Authors, check out how you can participate, and there will be a call to readers later this month!

If you're in the Seattle area, I hope to see you at the SCBWI WWA conference this weekend! Lots of cool speakers are coming in, including my awesome agent, Edward Necarsulmer IV. I'm also speaking on the local success panel about the story of TELL ME A SECRET. Hope to see you!

And last but not least...Happy Birthday, Mom!! Love you.
