Yesterday I met with writer pals and blog geniuses - Angela Ackerman and Stina Lindenblatt to discuss our panel at the upcoming When Words Collide Writers Conference.
We met at the beach. Yeah. Life is tough like that sometimes. Anyhow, while Stina and my kids roamed around (Ang's are old enough to fend for themselves) we talked about Writing YA. It was good for the soul and interesting and of course there was a *little* general conversation about books and the publishing life.
Today was a great day too! I saw a wonderful, wonderful glowing review sheet that Kay Mitchell, Publicist Extraordinaire put together for publishing people. It is beautiful and full of wonderful quotes from readers who loved I'M NOT HER. Of course, readers who did not were purposefully ignored. (kidding, kidding, kidding. Sort of.)
I also got word that I'M NOT HER was on the Sony Reader's Ebook Staff Picks. Cool beans, yes.
Best of all I got to have a conversation with my lovely editor at Sourcebooks, and we talked about a new book idea that I am SOOOOOO excited about and she loved the idea too! Yay! Great news! Now all I have to do is write it! Oh. Wait. That's kind of the hard part.
But seriously I haven't been this pumped about a new book for a long time, so let's hope it all works out and there will be some official news soon!!! But meanwhile, back at the book store...
Please love my book world. No pressure. But please. :)
