Two BIG Things!

First - today is launch day for Lisa McMann's FADE - the sequel to WAKE, which is an awesome book. You need to check these books out if you haven't already. I will be getting my copy of FADE from a local indie in a week or so. My [signed] copy of WAKE is locked in the Stella-vault with all my jewels and gold and other assorted booty. Second - I just found out that The Dust of 100 Dogs made the Spring Children's Indie Next List and I am SO STOKED. I LOVE my independent bookstores because they are such champions for authors. Being on the Next List is a massive honor for me and I may just get sappy and shed a salty tear. Or pass around the rum and yell, "Clear the decks for pleasant action!" I have more to say about how you can best support your independent bookstores later, but right now, I have to call my mom and tell her the good news. My mom loves good news.

I am reading my signed copy of wake right now! But immediately afterwards I will lock it back up with my jewels.
