Hi! First of all – THANK YOU X1000000000000 for all your excitement about STAR CURSED! Thank you for helping me celebrate my book birthday this week! I am SO proud of this book and so excited that it’s finally out in the world.
Thank you, too, to those of you who’ve passed along your condolences. The Playwright and I have spent the last few weeks at my in-laws’ while my FIL did end-of-life hospice care. It’s been rough. He passed away early Tuesday morning. He was a kind, unassuming guy with a glint of good humor in his eyes and a love of British murder mysteries and photography, all of which he passed along to The Playwright. He will be missed.
Between our family situation and STAR CURSED’s book birthday, it’s been a rollercoaster of a happysad week. But I’m grateful to have amazing friends and readers whose good wishes have been buoyed me up.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting another link roundup of where I’ve been this week, plus the Rafflecopter form for the STAR CURSED blog tour prizes! But in the meantime:
My friends and Breathless Reads alums Fiona Paul (VENOM, BELLADONNA), Lili Peloquin (THE INNOCENTS, THIS SIDE OF JEALOUSY), and Liz Richards (BLACK CITY, PHOENIX) and I realized a few months ago that we all have sequels coming out this summer! So to celebrate, we decided to join forces and bring you the Summer Solstice Sequels tour!
Tonight (Thurs, June 20) at 6:30pm EST, we’ll be doing a twitterchat! Come talk to us? We’ll be giving away loads of ARCs, generously donated by Penguin Teen! Just follow the hashtag #SSSequels!
All this week, awesome bloggers have been hosting us, spotlighting one of our books. Each day there’s been a (fun, I promise!) quiz: guess which favorite book belongs to which author, identify us by our embarrassing teenage pictures, etc. Guess right and you’re entered to win one of TWO copies of that day’s spotlighted book! You have until June 28 to enter, so go forth!
