We now have only two months (TWO MONTHS!!)
until And I Darken comes out. I can’t quite believe it. This is the
longest I’ve ever had from idea-to-published-book. It doesn’t quite feel
real. But this massive, brutal, very different book has already
accomplished something none of my other books have! …which I can’t quite
tell you about yet, but soon.
In the meantime, two exciting things:
1. I’ll be at YallWest this
weekend! April 30-May 1st. If you can get to LA, you definitely should.
It’s basically the biggest book party of the year. I’ll be on two
panels and signing on Saturday, and then on Sunday I’ll be EATING
CUPCAKES WITH YOU along with several other suuuuuuuper cool authors,
thanks to First In Line and Random House! I’m so excited. I hope I see
Are you an aspiring writer? Would you like to come to a retreat where
you can connect with other aspiring writers as well as participate in
hands-on, intensive workshops with published authors…such as yours
truly? I’ll be teaching HERE,
with Madcap Retreats. If it’s something you can do, I highly recommend
it. (I don’t make money off it. I agreed to do it because the writing
community has given me so much, and I love opportunities to return the
favor. Come learn in a few days what it took us years to figure out!)
The application deadline is May 1st, and I don’t know how many slots are
still open, so apply now if you want to do it. I can’t wait!
that’s it for now. If you can’t come to LA or Tennessee, I’ll be in a
lot more places this fall. Hopefully one that you are in, too!
