If I keep doing these weekly posts, there’s no way I’ll be able to say nothing changed. Because things always change, even if I don’t immediately notice. After seven short days, there’s always something different in your life–a detail that changes everything. But if things change in a week, imagine over the course of years. When I got… More the bookworm at 8 and then 21
I’ve participated in all of Lindsey’s cover reveals for this series. It has been wonderful watching this story grow, because I read it when it was still a draft on inkpop.

Dissonance is available in paperback. And with that done, I can finally move onto the sequel, Elegy. I have a 60k draft I never… More my dream–finally in paperback
A few days ago two proof copies of Dissonance arrived in my mailbox and they looked absolutely perfect, as opposed to the first disastrous attempt. I’d selected a matte finish for the first one and it just destroyed the details of the image. You couldn’t tell the silhouette is of a girl in the background. So I… More Dissonance is now available in print!
On Thursday I published a review for Wrong About the Guy, a charming novel by Claire LaZebnik about Ellie and the struggles she faces with her family and friends. Her stepfather became a television star, so she has to deal with the bittersweet privileges that come with a life of luxury. I really liked seeing that, even… More author Claire LaZebnik on parents in YA, autism and more!
Find on Goodreads Every now and then a book shows up all over my news feed on every social network with a really enticing cover (and often featuring a beautiful dress.) It’s a book everyone seems to have read except me and often there is a love-hate division; on Goodreads, The Selection has a pretty set line… More The Selection by Kiera Cass
