it's time for another song on the crossed playlist!

I’m on my way to Providence, Rhode Island to speak at the NEIBA Fall Conference. In fact, I’m writing this post in the Salt Lake City Airport, which has free wi-fi, which I LOVE. (Other airports, take note!)

The release date for CROSSED is getting closer and closer. And I thought this would be a good time to tell you another song from the playlist. (For the other songs I’ve mentioned, click on the “crossed playlist” category.)

The song Doubting Thomas by Nickel Creek, is a song that I listened to when I was editing Ky’s chapters in particular during the early drafts. It’s a very “Ky” song–although I picture his voice sounding a little more rough, maybe more like Brandon Flowers of The Killers.

I can’t wait for the launch, which is just three weeks away! Remember, if you can’t make the launch, The King’s English Bookshop is taking orders for signed copies. I will personalize them, too–just let them know when you order what you’d like the books to say.

I’ll be back soon. I’ve been to Providence before, but it’s been years. My son is jealous that I get to go to the smallest state in the USA. Any ideas of what I should do while I’m there? Besides work like crazy on my manuscript?

Also, I’ve responded to all the comments on the last post. Thank you so much for your kind words–and for re-reading MATCHED!

      Hey Lady!

      Long time no chat. I can’t believe you’re heading to Providence. It’s so small I forgot it was even a state. I just wanted to say hi, and I’m super excited for Crossed!

      luv, erin

    I went to college in Providence. This is past my time there, but I’ve heard that watching the WaterFires on the river at night is cool. (I think that Providence has become a much better city since I lived there.)
