For the Love of Zombies!

As you might be able to tell from this charming picture of me, I've gotten some lovely new red highlights... and a really bad case of poison ivy. Obviously I'm severely allergic to poison ivy. I'll be time. Lots of time & ointment. In the meantime, at least I still have my smile. Okay, the truth is I'm celebrating (in style) the launch of BAD TASTE IN BOYS, a wickedly funny YA zombie book by the amazing Carrie Harris. I was lucky enough to be able to read an early draft of BTIB... and have to say it's as awesomesauce as its author! And I'm not even naturally the zombie-loving type...but this book converted me to zombieism (spelling?). So, the short of it is if you're looking for laughs, a fabulous zombie-fighting heroine, a hottie, and some good, maybe not so wholesome (we're talking lost body parts here, people) zombie fun, you should run and get your copy of BAD TASTE IN BOYS today!

Don't believe me about the zombie fun? Take a look at this trailer:

While you're celebrating the zombierama, you should also check out the special launch auction called NIGHT OF THE GIVING DEAD that Carrie has set up to benefit the Giving Library at the University of Michigan C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital. There are tons of fabulous items up for bid, including signed books, critiques, phone conversations with authors and agents, and two awesome grand prizes! For a full list of auction items, click HERE. If you'd like a signed copy of THE LIPSTICK LAWS from yours truly (, click HERE to bid! I will give you a cupcake (free of zombie parts).

So, what are you waiting for? Start bidding & celebrating zombie-mania!

Pictures Galore

Helllllooooo! I know, I know, I've been MIA from the blogosphere... but for good reason. The last month has been a whirlwind both professionally and personally. I've survived a move, had lots of fun at signings and events, and have been working on writing whenever there's extra time. I thought I'd share some photos to bring you up to date on some of the recent events I've participated in below.

If you haven't been able to come to any of my signings/events yet (listed HERE), I'll be at the Neshaminy Mall Barnes & Noble in Bensalem, PA on Friday, July 8th from 5-7 pm. Also, I'll be signing at the PAYA festival in West Chester, PA on August 27th. I'd love to see you at either event!

And now for the pictures:
