blog tour day two and nanowrimo


First of all, to those who came to the launch party last night at The King’s English, thank you so much! It was such a lovely night and I am still floating. Readers and booksellers are awesome. Being able to see all of you and talk with you has made my year. And thank you also for all your kind comments on the post yesterday! I am very grateful for your support of CROSSED.

I have a few links for you today! The first is to a post I wrote for NaNoWriMo’s Young Writers Program. I hope all of you doing NaNoWriMo are having a wonderful second day. It’s such an exciting month!

Also, I posted about working with an editor here at the Story Siren’s blog. This is one of the questions I get asked most frequently so it was great to sit down and really write it all out. The Story Siren is having a giveaway (thanks to Penguin for providing the copy of CROSSED and other goodies)! There are quite a few entries on her blog, but guess what? If you head over here to yesterday’s blog post at the Matched Department, there are many less entries for the same prizes (only 4 entries right now, instead of 200+). Just want to help you increase your odds…

I’m currently in San Francisco and can’t wait for the events this afternoon and evening! Will I see some of you there?

    No. I live in Lehi, but wasn’t able to go last night.
    If you haven’t been to Shannon Hale’s website recently, you need to. Shannon’s friend carved some beautiful pumpKins of Matched and Crossed. 🙂

    I wanted to enter the contest, but the Matched site is down until the 4th and by then I’ll be working (my office is at 38,000 feet in the sky…so no internet) for the rest of the week. But maybe I’ll be able to sneak in and enter (!!!)

    I loved your encouraging “more” message. That’s a great reminder for all the ALL or NOTHING thinkers out there (I’m not the only one, right?!)

    Have such a great time on your tour! ♥

    Ally,
    I am so excited you’re going to be in the Bay Area. My daughter and I will see you at the event at the Barnes and Noble in El Cerrito.

    We can’t wait.

    See you tonight.
