Wow, there’s so much going on in my life right now. Where do I begin? Maybe by telling you how lucky I feel knowing my third book, Taken at Dusk, will be released very soon. And I just found out Awake at Dawn is a finalist in the New England Readers Choice Bean Pot Award in the Young Adult category. I feel so honored and excited. So, a big thank you to all my readers, because without you, none of this would be possible.
When my editor asked me to write young adult, I wasn’t sure how it would go. But then my mind started racing and the characters suddenly sprang to life. The rest, as they say, is history—at least what’s happened in the first three books. I am working on book number four, Whispers at Moonrise, and it isn’t done, yet. So I’m not sure how this one will end, but I know it will be interesting. And I’m oh so excited for Kylie and—Derek or Lucas! No, I’m not saying anything. You’ll just have to wait.
All the buzz for Taken at Dusk has been phenomenal! I have a blog tour, so check my Facebook page to see where I’m blogging and giving away books every day. I’ve also got several book signings and appearances scheduled, and I’ll be announcing those on Facebook as well. And to top it off, Macmillan is having a sweepstakes and they are giving away FIFTY Shadow Falls t-shirts, pens and note pads. If you want to enter, go to http://us.macmillan.com/macmillansite/promo/shadowfallsgriffinteen?WT.mc_id=10582&WT.mc_id=0, but hurry, the last day to enter is April 16th.
As an author, I can’t imagine my life any better. Well, maybe I can because I do have a pretty wild imagination. But I am very happy being right where I am as I am living my dream. So, tell me, if you were living your dream, what would your life be like?
And today I’ll give away a copy of Awake at Dawn and some pens and notebooks. So make sure you post and come back in one week to see if you won.
