December Booksigning Event

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

I hope your Winter season is a fun one, filled with lots of family and friends, and of course - great books to read. I've just turned in a new book proposal, which means I have down-time for the first time in months. That means I'll be celebrating the Holidays with friends and family and working on the promo for my book with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, The Clearing, which debuts in April! It's getting closer.

In the meantime, my debut YA novel, Never Cry Werewolf, is out and doing pretty well. If you'd like to get a signed copy, my next event is a party and signing with Pacific Northwest Writers' Association:
PNWA Holiday Party Location:
Winters House - 2101 Bellevue Way SE Bellevue, WA 98004
Date: Saturday, december 5, 2009
Time: 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

If you can't make it out to the PNWA signing - there are a bunch of signed copies of Never Cry Werewolf at the Lynnwood, WA - Barnes & Noble. And the booksellers there are soooo sweet!

Thank you very much for stopping by to see what's new. Hope you have very happy Holidays!
The Clearing - April 2010 (HMH)
Never Cry Werewolf - Sept 2009 (HarperTeen)

Scaryween was super fun at Secret Garden Books in Ballard! What a wonderful, warm staff and store. Halloween was a great excuse to support another local indie bookstore.

We had a costume contest (notice the Dude and a homemade monster) and four author readings – me, Kevin Emerson, Liz Gallagher, and Cherie Priest.

Never Cry Werewolf on Shelves!

Well, there it is -- my book on stands at Barnes and Noble. I can't believe it!

It wasn't even out on the floor when I first stopped by on release day, but a nice (and very cute) bookseller named Jeff went and got 6 copies from the back - had me sign them and the put them on the shelf. Squeee! What a day.
I followed that up by buying a "moon" pendant necklace to commemorate release day and having dinner with my sister and friend Marlene at The Pink Door - a delicious restaurant near the Pike Place Market. It was a perfect ending to Debut day!
I'll be using this page to update events - so keep watching to see upcoming signings, etc. I'll be at Queen Anne Books on September 18th at 6:30 PM, and Third Place Books is coming up in October!
