the morning after

April 3rd, 2009

 I figured I’d take you on a photographic tour of my Pub Day yesterday, which really did feel like a birthday. It started with phonecalls from my family and friends, wishing me good luck. And then emails from my agents and publishers wishing me “Happy Pub Date.”  This is my third book. Nobody has ever […]

it feels like a birthday

April 2nd, 2009

It’s April 2nd. A day I’ve been waiting for for…11 months. I think that’s how long it’s been since I officially sold my book and shortly thereafter got the release date of April 2nd. Today. In many ways, 11 months is nothing. It zooms by. But in so many ways, it seems like dog years. […]

the twilight effect?

March 30th, 2009

I’m not sure whether I’m flattered, amused, annoyed or a little bit of all three.

February 2nd, 2009

If I Stay comes out two months from today. And the reviews are starting to roll in, which is both terrifying and exhilarating. It’s also fascinating to see the things that people notice.  One thing that hasn’t been so surprising, and yet at the same time has (more on that in a minute), is the […]

forgive them for they know not what they do

January 5th, 2009

A few weeks ago, I gave a friend of mine my new novel, If I Stay, to read. When she was done with it, she had lots of nice things to say. And then she said this: “It’s so good. You should write an adult novel one day.” Ouch. I love this friend, and if […]
