Just a brief update and some little exciting things:
THROUGH TO YOU is now up on Goodreads! So many people have added it as “to-read” I feel like hugging and kissing each and every one of you…I mean, unless you’d prefer a big THANK YOU instead. That’s okay too!
I also have an official Facebook Author Page. It seemed a little premature, but since I’ve been getting quite a few new ‘friends’ on Facebook, I thought it might be useful for those people more interested in what’s going on with my books than the cute thing my cat did, or what I had for breakfast. If that sounds like you, feel free to “Like” me there!
I also joined The Apocalypsies, a group of 2012 debut YA and MG authors who have written a slew of fantastic books and are just a whole lot of fun! Check the site for interviews and updates on what we’re up to!
While awaiting my first round of edits, I have been been busy trying to figure out Book 2…and playing around with Scrivener for the first time during the process. Since I finally figured out how to use it, I can’t deny it has serious organizational benefits! I might save a whole forest of post-it notes this time around. So now what-could-be-Book 2 is totally organized, the characters have been developed, and if I can just find the button that makes Scrivener WRITE the book for me, I’ll be all set!
The other surreal thing that just seems like a continuation of so much great news is THROUGH TO YOU’s continued sales overseas. Since the initial German deal, Taryn Fagerness has made sales for TTY in Italy, The Netherlands, Portugal, and just recently my very first South American sale: Brazil! I am totally overwhelmed and amazed that people all over the world will be reading my book. I don’t even know what to say except…I hope you like it!
Finally, I received my very first contract to sign — which happened to be for Italy. And like a geek, I had S take pics. So here I am, signing my very first book deal…with a little foreign contract advice from Dagny the cat:
