Well, if things have seemed a little slow around here, it's probably because I spent the last three weeks in Maui and Lanai taking a totally blissful and much needed vacay where people actually brought me chilled towels, spritzed my face with Evian, and prepared small cups of ice-cream for me to snack on as I lounged by the pool . . . a life I quickly became accustomed to!
But now that I'm back to the cruel reality of unpacking, laundry, mail sorting, e-mail answering, (Oy, I need another vacay just thinking about it!), I thought I'd stop by here and share a few updates!
The UK and Croatian rights to both EVERMORE & BLUE MOON were recently sold (yay!) making for 14 territories so far, and EVERMORE has crept up to the #2 spot on Publisher's Weekly's Best Seller list for Children's Fiction (double yay!)!! Though, alas, it has slipped from the #1 spot to the #3 spot on the NYT Best Sellers List for Children's Paperbacks--but it was an incredible run at 10 weeks at #1 and since it's still hanging in there (14 weeks on the list!) I figured a little champagne celebration is definitely in order--right?
Also, the good reviews on BLUE MOON are coming in! This one from Harriet Klausner who gave it 5 Stars and says:
"BLUE MOON, the second Immortals saga, is an outstanding teen fantasy in the tradition of Kelly Armstrong and Stephanie Meyers."

Also, I've received some very nice e-mails from bloggers/reviewers who read their early copies and loved it too--some even more than EVERMORE (!)--and I'll be sharing those soon!!
And, for those of you who've been asking when I'll get the BLUE MOON info up on the website--well, I have some very exciting stuff brewing, seriously exciting, and can't wait to share it with you as soon as it's ready and I get the okay!
And last but not least, I'll be signing copies of my books on Sunday May 31 from 1:00 - 2:30 alongside Marlene Perez, Debby Garfinkle, Kathryn Fitzmaurice, Mary Pearson, and Deborah Lytton at:
Laguna Beach Books
1200 S. Coast Highway, Ste 105
Laguna Beach, CA, 92651
And I really hope to see you there!!
Have a great day everyone!
