Sunday Finally Shuts Up

So, as many of you know, as well as an Apocalypsie, Class of 2k12-er, League of Reluctant Adult co-founder, I'm a YA Rebel. I figured, since this blog is usually a little light on content, I'm going to start posting EVERYTHING I do here. Just for shits and giggles.

Here's my most recent Sunday video...

How's that?

The Lucky 7 Game!

Okay, so maybe NOT so lucky, but I was tagged to do this challenge by Lissa Price, author of the fantastic dystopian thriller, STARTERS, and I have complied. The rules of this tag are simple (and reiterated in the video), but for those of you who are impatient here's the kicker...

Open your most recent novel or work-in-progress.
Turn to page 7 or page 77.
Count 7 lines down.
Copy (or read aloud in a vlog post) the next 7 their entirety. No cheating or editing!!!
Then tag 7 more authors!

It's like a chain letter...only no one's going to die or become ill or penniless if you don't do it--as far as I know. Could be wrong.'s the video I did, with bonus Hunger Games/Battle Royale comparison, Cookie Talk and Mayhem!


So now. On with the TAGGERY!

The eArcs Have Landed!

On Tuesday, I started getting word that advance readers copies of Velveteen were showing up on Edelweiss and Netgalley. This is a huge moment for an author, because it heralds open season on reviews of our books. It's exciting and frightening and humbling. By tonight, Velveteen had risen to the 18th most requested YA ARCs and the book already has a couple of reviews on Goodreads. I'm so happy people are excited for this book, I could just...well I'm just happy. If you're a blogger, vlogger or reviewer and want to get a chance to read an advance copy of Velveteen, just click on my favorite cover ever!
At this point, there printed ARCs are not being widely distributed to bloggers and such, but I'll definitely keep you updated as to when that happens!
