ARIZONA here I come!

Before I get into the schedule for Arizona, a quick bit of news.


VERA GOT HER THIRD STARRED REVIEW FROM BOOKLIST.
That's just amazing. 
Just amazing.

“Watching characters turn into the people they’ve long fought to avoid becoming is painful, but seeing them rise above it, reflect, and move on makes this title a worthy addition to any YA collection”
 
And since we're talking about awesome things, here's a picture of me and Nic, my awesome Random House sales rep at the party on Saturday night. I adore Nic. She's a frekin' superhero.

 
Since I'm going to be out of town for a few days: If you review my book let me know by sending me an email so I can include you in the weekly linkage!


LINKAGE:

I found this link to a BookPleasures.com review of VERA and here's a snippet:

"This book is a great young adult read, but I also highly recommend it to parents who perhaps want and need a better understanding of how their actions affect their children and their children’s future."

OPPORTUNITY:

For as little as $20 you could have me skype visit your school, library, or book club.
All proceeds go to stopping domestic violence. 
If you've read VERA, you understand this is close to my heart.


I had a great visit today at Conrad Weiser High School and can't wait to go back one day again. YOU GUYS ROCK. And the continuation at the Roby library ROCKED also.
