absence makes the heart grow fonder

Hello!

I’m alive! And still not blogging regularly! So, pretty much everything is in order.

Some good things have happened since I last posted, which generally occurs when you take five-month breaks between blogging.

First, I finished all my edits for POINTE and now it’s being turned into an almost-book! The interior was designed and now it’s at the printer, being made into an advance reader copy. I’m not sure when ARCs will make their way to me, but I’m thinking within the next couple of months, so stay tuned!

Second, I revealed my cover, synopsis, and release date on the fantastic YA Highway, but if you don’t feel like clicking over, I’m just going to post the pretty cover here too, because why not?

Gorgeous, yes? It’s hard to express how much I love my cover and how pleased I am with the amazing people at Penguin who worked to get it just right. Also? My book is available for preorder here!

And third, I’ve been rambling about writing and books and whatnot in a few places around the Internet, so I’m linking to those below in case you wanted proof that I’m blogging for other people and not myself:

So You Want to Read YA? on Stacked

Finally, I received truly amazing blurbs from two authors who inspire me to no end, and as soon as I get my ARCs, I’ll be revealing those blurbs and hosting a giveaway (one of my ARCs and each of their debut novels) on the Thirteeners blog. So stay tuned AGAIN! Maybe not here, though. Maybe best to keep up with me on Twitter or Tumblr, since I seem to update those more than four times a year.

I also want to say a huge thank-you to everyone who’s expressed excitement about POINTE, whether it was on Twitter or Waiting on Wednesdays or by adding my book to your Goodreads shelves. It’s been a long process and I still have about eight months to go, but knowing that people are looking forward to reading my book (people who aren’t my parents or BFF!) makes the wait absolutely worth it.

    1. Thanks so much, Jess! Just got word they’re on their way to me next week, so should be able to announce and host the giveaway very soon. Huzzah!
