Update and More

I went out of town for Labor Day weekend through part of last week, and to my surprise, I returned to no internet, phone or cable at my house -- BOO! I'm very happy that I was able to set up Denise Jaden's book launch blog tour celebration (below) to post automatically. Which, by the way, if you haven't entered to win a signed copy of her fabulous debut LOSING FAITH yet, please CLICK HERE to enter (the winner will be announced this Wednesday).

Anyhow, the internet glitches have been fixed, but I've gotten a little behind on keeping up with blogs and emails during my unexpected internet hiatus... so if you've emailed me and haven't received a response yet, or if you're wondering why I haven't stopped by your blog in a while, just know that I'm not ignoring you on purpose. I'm hoping to catch up on blogs and emails this week.

Now for some fun book news!!! Last week, I received my second pass of The Lipstick Laws. Originally, I wasn't going to be privy to the second pass pages, but because I made some significant changes in the first pass (I hacked a character from the plot), my editor thought I should review the changes in this second pass. The good news is I like the new changes translated to paper. The bad news is there are now a few minor mistakes that will not be corrected before the ARCs go out. So if you receive an ARC for review, you'll notice a couple sentence mistakes here and there... but that's what makes the uncorrected ARCs so special, right?

Check out some sneak peek second pass pictures:

Isn't the two page spread cool?

There's one more thing I'd like to mention before I go. The Class of 2k11 (which I'm a member and Vice President of) is closing membership this week. The 15th is the last day that we will be accepting new member applications. If you're a YA or MG author debuting in 2011, and you'd like more info about the group and/or you'd like to fill out an application, please contact me at

Glad to see your back online!

Ooh, the two page spread is neat! It gives you a better idea how to visualize it,

It's now one of my fave words in the English language.

Though technically it's not a word...
