Counting Down the Days...
I can't believe how quickly the summer has gone. Really, this one was fast. And we are now 5 days away from my first published book hitting the shelves. Holy crapola.
I was in NYC last week, where my editor presented me with a real, hardback copy of Never Cry Werewolf, along with a cupcake with a candle in it. "Happy book birthday," she said with a huge smile.
It's been a while since I sold the book, but that moment, this time in my life, makes the wait sooooo worth it. I don't know how I'll sleep on August 31st, knowing that the very next day the book will be reality!
I've been so lucky to have wonderful writing friends, like the Buzz Girls, to support me along the way. You ladies are amazing! And I want to thank the Buzz Blog readers, too -- your encouragement and enthusiasm for the book has made the wait seem somehow shorter.
Next week, we'll be giving away copies of Never Cry Werewolf each day on the blog - so be sure to comment each day on the post. We'll kick-off on Monday, so please spread the word. I can't wait to send the winners their copies and introduce them to the world of Camp Crescent and its dark, sweet hero Austin Bridges the III.
Much love to all you guys!
