There’s No Place Like Home
I’m homeeeeee! WOOT!
After two weeks on the first leg of my tour and three days in Boston, I finally get to settle in to write Book Three in the Prophecy series.
I’m working on compiling all my pictures and memories of my tour into something coherent that I can share here. More then likely, it will end up as multiple posts, because SO much happened that I doubt I’ll be able to get it all into one post.
For now, I’m going to give you a couple of random updates!
My Polish publisher has unveiled a GORGEOUS Prophecy trailer and website. And no, I don’t speak Polish! But it’s totally worth looking at – it’s THAT beautiful. The enthusiasm of my foreign publishers continues to humble me.
I recently received news that Prophecy garnered a starred review from VOYA! I’m a huge fan of VOYA, so getting a starred review really means the world to me. You can read the review in its entirety, in addition to a great review recently received from The Bulletin, on the Books tab of this website.
Book Divas has chosen Prophecy as a Featured Book, and I couldn’t be more honored! I’ll be honest; it’s still a little surreal to see my work next to that of so many authors that I have long admired. Thanks, Book Divas, for the vote of confidence!
There’s still plenty fo time to enter the Justine Sparks Prophecy of the Sisters Book Trailer Contest! The winner gets their trailer featured on the Justine Sparks website, a phone call from me (SO excited! I’m such a talker!), and TONS of book loot! Spread the worddddd! 😀
Prophecy of the Sisters was nominated for the 2009 Cybil Awards! This would be a big enough honor, but it’s made bigger by the fact that it was nominated by Sarah Ockler, author of one of my very favorite debut book of 2009, Twenty Boy Summer. Twenty Boy Summer is, of course, also nominated (and deservedly so) along with many more of my favorites. Thanks, Sarah!
My interview with Iain is up over at Yatterings. I know interviews sometimes seem overdone, but Iain really knows his stuff. He made me WORK to answer these questions, and they really are among some of the most interesting, insightful questions I’ve ever been asked. Take a look and prepare to be impressed. With Iain. Not me.
That’s all for now. I love to post links to reviews and interviews, but honestly, a lot of the last two months is just a blur! If you’ve posted a Prophecy review or interview on your blog and would like me to link to it, please leave me a comment with a link or, if you have my contact information, Facebook, Twitter, etc., drop me a line there so I can post it for you.
I’ll be posting my tour run-downs over the next couple of days and weeks, but might be otherwise scarce as I am knee-deep in Book Three. Still, I must confess to a lot of excitement at the prospect of being able to settle in and write again. And I realized the other day that that is the beauty of having the privilege to do what I do; as fun as it is to tour and interview and meet so many amazing people, when it’s all said and done, for me, it’s still about the writing.
