It's A Girl!

I'm a little behind in posting this exciting announcement (because my week has been CrAzY):

THE LIPSTICK LAWS was officially born this past Monday (April 4). She came into the world wearing red lipstick, weighing in at less than a pound, and measuring 5 & 1/2" x 8 & 1/2"! Woohoo! A big thank you to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (and my editor, Julia Richardson) for making my publishing dream come true!

If you see my book baby out in the wild, please snap a picture and send it to me at I'm thinking up a giveaway for later in the month where these pictures will earn you entries. Stay tuned...

I have a lot of Lipstick Laws related interviews and guest posts floating around the internet now. Check out my News & Reviews page for links. If you aren't already following my blog tour through The Teen Book Scene, please see details (and tour links) HERE. I will be giving away three signed copies of THE LIPSTICK LAWS. The winners will be chosen from the tour post comments.

And finally, here is the fabulous James from Book Chic Club reading an excerpt! I never thought I'd see a guy reading about April's bra-stuffing... but I'm pleasantly surprised by James! He's awesome (and brave)!

You can see his original vlog of this on his site HERE or YouTube HERE.

I am not embarassed by bra stuffing (I did drag once so used bunched up socks as boobs; they were surprisingly life-like) or lipstick. You should know that gay guys are much more brave when it comes to that kind of thing, lol.

Thanks for showing it off, and congrats again on your publication! The book is AWESOME.

PS My favorite part of the vlog is my reading of "THAT'S PATHETIC!" It makes me giggle incessantly.

Hmm, might not be good for the UK set - we gets very little US books. But I'll certainly let you know if I see it!
