september 20 is a very big day because

it is the release date for the paperback of MATCHED…

….and it is also the release date for ENTHRALLED, the short story collection edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong. I contributed the story Leaving.

I have been so excited about these books and have blogged about them both before, but it took me until today to realize that their release dates are the same. Good heavens, I am out to lunch.

And, September also marks the beginning of my traveling again–I’ll have had four months off and it was wonderful–but I’m very thrilled to be going to Portland on the 29th as part of the Smart Chicks tour. For full tour info, click here.

My blogging will be a bit sporadic over the next few weeks because of the perfect storm of a) deadlines b) the beginning of school, which means LOTS of transitions for our family this year and c) a raging case of carpal tunnel, which always happens when a) is taking place. So I’m backing off on the writing that isn’t actual book writing to save myself some pain. But I’ll keep updating with fun news as we get closer and closer to the release date of CROSSED…which is now exactly two months away.

I hope you are all having a wonderful first of September!

    Carpal Tunnel is no fun! I hope it starts to go away as you take a break! Have fun in Portland!

    I’m really looking forward to buying Enthralled. I’ll probably skip to Leaving and read it first! 🙂
