I scored an ARC of Maria Semple’s WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE at BEA this year. One chapter in & I’m already loving it!
I’m going on a road-trip book tour (9/7-9/12) with my Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers pal, Kristen-Paige Madonia, so FINGERPRINTS OF YOU is cued up on my nightstand.
Just bought my second copy of Lisa Luedeke’s SMASHED (another S&S book!) at her fabulous book launch party at the Peterborough, NH Toadstool Bookshop. Can’t wait to crack it open.
Last but not least, I am the lucky recipient of an advance copy of TRINKETS by novelist/screenwriter extraordinaire Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith. Aren’t you jealous?
Nothing better than a cool fall evening & snuggling up with a good book. If you need one, click here.
I’m back from one road trip…
And I’m about to go on another…

So it looks like the Level3 boys are stuck in France a little longer. Poor them. But no matter, Dilly, Dilly is rocking those libraries without them! Here are some pix from the Chicopee, MA event. So glad I’m going to the gig in Hampton! (Lane Memorial Library, Hampton, NH – Monday, 7/23 6:30pm).
Chicopee girls in the Pea Pod. (That’s a lot of peas!)
Dilly, Dilly – on banjo.
Slow down, ladies!
Dilly’s set list.
Oh, and in case you missed this little bit of awesomeness.
A hearty thanks to everyone who stopped by the blog to share their boy band love.
I’m happy to announce that One Direction fan Christina K. walked away with the prize–a $10 iTunes gift card & a copy of REUNITED.
Stay tuned for more summer giveaway fun. And don’t forget to stop by the Level3 Tour page to see if the boys are coming to a town near you!

I thought I showed my love for REUNITED when I got my toes painted yellow for BEA, but @amabe421 has clearly one-upped me. I present to you the best REUNITED-themed manicure ever. And possibly the only REUNITED-themed manicure ever.
Coordinating one’s nails with one’s literature is a must this season.

REUNITED, in the Simon & Schuster lobby!
Thank you all so much for spreading the REUNITED book trailer into every nook and cranny of the social network. It’s been a thrilling and emotional week as I’ve watched REUNITED make its way into the world (without me!) and I am so grateful for the support of my friends, family, and fans who’ve been with me throughout this process, shared kind words about the book, purchased copies, and helped me pull off a totally kick-ass launch party.
Cruisin’ in the Pea Pod with 13-year-old Helen!
Now, it’s my chance to give some of that love back to YOU. I’ve been so moved by all of the sweet emails, helpful re-Tweets, and photos people have sent of REUNITED at bookstores all over the country that I’ve decided to give away a bonus copy of the book!
REUNITED, in good company.
The bonus winner, who will receive a signed copy of REUNITED, is Sarah C. Enjoy!
And now, without further ado, the winner of the REUNITED Road Trip Prize Pack is… Christy P.
Thanks again to all who entered. May your summers be filled with wonderful adventures and great books!
Behold the glory of the Prize Pack!
It’s hard to believe release day is finally here. I feel excited, relieved, and filled with gratitude to everyone who’s supported me during these past few years–my incredibly patient and loving family, my amazing friends, my editor Alexandra Cooper, and the rest of my team at Simon & Schuster, my agent Steve Malk, my manager Seth Jaret, my fellow authors in the Apocalypsies, and the fantastic community of book bloggers and readers I’ve come to know over the inter-webs.
In celebration of this momentous day, I’ve decided to extend my Spread This Book Trailer Everywhere Contest for another week. So if you haven’t entered yet, this is your big chance.
Now, it’s time to let go of the book I’ve held so closely and allow it to make its own way in the world. Best of luck, REUNITED! And don’t forget to write.
