All kinds of happy seriousness

This has been a hugely emotional week. You guys … you guys are AMAZING. Thank you so much to everyone who has bought my books, or read my books, or sent me emails/tweets/messages/texts of support. Thank you.

No, seriously.


I owe huge special overflowing thanks to Wendy Darling of The Midnight Garden for organizing an amazing blog tour on my behalf, along with Danny of Bewitched Bookworms, Rachel of The Reader’s Den, Tara of Hobbitsies, Jen of The Starry-Eyed Revue, Sarah from Saz101, Sam from Realm of Fiction, Valerie from Stuck in Books, Savannah from Books with Bite, and Steph and Kat from Cuddlebuggery. You guys have been fantastic to work with, and I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to have been given this opportunity. Additionally, thank you to everyone who posted as a review stop on the tour. I know so many of you, but I don’t want to inadvertently leave anyone out, so please know that I think you are all amazing, and I can’t thank you enough.

If you missed any of the tour stops, the contests are still running. Please visit and give these bloggers some love. They are all amazing, and their blogs are fantastic.

In case anyone forgot, the launch party for Spirit is TOMORROW at 1pm, at the Barnes & Noble in Ellicott City. We’re having a writers chat afterward, and all are invited. I hope to see you there!

  1. I agree! Thank you! My 14 year old daughter had a serious aversion to reading but now can’t get enough of your books. We have only recently discovered them and she has managed to read all 3 in just under 5 days! Now she wants to know how long to wait for the next book – am bracing myself to tell her feb next year!

    • Awww, thank you!! I know, sometimes the waiting is the hardest. I just finished book 4, and I can’t wait for people to read it! Please tell your daughter I said hello. 🙂
