My blog is (S)Lacking

Oy. It seems that I have slowly transitioned into twitter for updates. I iz sorry, dear bloggers!

So here is my catchup:

A) Don't forget! I have a critique of a full  proposal up for grabs! Details here.

B) I am about ready to ship off DRIVEN to my harlequin editor. SQUEE!

C) My 2010 YA is coming along-- I'm at around 25,000 words now. Even more exciting? I sent some preliminary cover ideas over to my editor last week. The top image I captioned with, "I'm pretty much in love with this, it's perfect." And in a moment of serendipity, It turns out that was the VERY image my editor had just talked about with the designer! I'm very hopeful that they come up with something really amazing and exciting.

D) I'm a bestseller! Well, sort-of. Elliott Bay Books, a huge indie near my office, has named Prada and Prejudice the #20 bestselling title storewide, and the #3 bestselling for the children's department. I think my amazing coworkers have something to do with that. ;-) Thanks guys!!

So apparently my library has it -- well it comes up when I go on the catalogue -- but it is nowhere to be found in the YA section. My heart is saddened greatly. :-/

Also-- yay for 2010 YA! Are we ever going to get a synopsis of this book? Or will we have to wait until a closer date when it comes out in stores/hits shelves? *hint*hint* I want a peak at the cover! ;-) Well potential cover, anyway! (Kidding of course)

That's awesome about Elliott Bay! I went to that bookstore last September when I was in Seattle - it's a great store!!

I saw 5 copies of your book at my local B&N today. :)

Wait--you're lucky enough to be able to SUGGEST things for your cover?? Your publishing life is so enchanted! I hear so many stories about authors having nothing to do with their covers, even when they're super upset about them.

It's well deserved! Prada and Prejudice was an awesome read and I still recommend it every time I can :) I can't wait to read your next book (there's still so much time to wait!) - and now, to see it's cover. Take care!
