In Between Days

(blog title courtesy of The Cure)

Wow, there is so much going on right now, it's hard to know where to start, so if it's okay with you, I think I'll just jump in and see where I land!



First off: Just want to THANK YOU all again for your wonderful support of RADIANCE!! I know I've gone on (and on!) about how Riley holds a special place in my heart, and I just want to say that your support of her story (which propelled her to #2 on the New York Times Bestsellers list!), really means the world to me!

And, speaking of Riley . . . there's this fun little poll over at Girls Life where you can chime in on which of her super powers you'd most like to have--all you have to do is click HERE! And just so you know, I voted for instant manifestation! :)



Also, if you haven't yet voted in the Teen Reads Awards be sure to do so! SHADOWLAND is up for "Best Teen Read" and all you have to do is click HERE to see the other awesome nominees and vote! But be sure to hurry--voting ends Sept 12!



Oh, and I just learned that DARK FLAME made Borders Books "Best Books of 2010" List--woo-hoo! You can see the full list HERE!





And, I can hardly believe it's upon us after so many months of planning/anticipation, but as of Monday the Smart Chicks are hitting the road and I'm telling you it's going to be EPIC!

This tour really has it all: an amazing group of authors, signings, Q&As, Swag (!), good times, and, hopefully, YOU!!

The stops are all here, but feel free to visit the Smart Chicks Website for more details!

I hope that I can make it to the event when you're in Illinois. I just wish that it was you and Melissa de la Cruz as well. I loved The Immortals series and the Blue Bloods series. Can't wait for the next books in both of them.
