tour! school visits!


Salt Lake City, please don’t have inversion while the other authors are here so they can see how ridiculously beautiful you are!

So, did you hear about the Breathless Reads tour? I am SO excited about this! I’ll be going on a five-city tour in February with four other authors: Andrea Cremer, Kirsten Miller, Beth Revis, and Brenna Yovanoff. Click here on the Events page for more tour info! And here to visit Andrea’s blog for an awesome tour-related contest that runs until February 1st.

As Beth mentioned on her site, we are getting a lot of lovely people wanting to meet up before or after the tour events, and we would LOVE to do that–but Penguin has us scheduled very tightly with promotional events, etc. So if it doesn’t work out, please know that it is out of our control and we are very sorry–but we would LOVE to see you at the event!

And, Salt Lake City and environs, let’s have a great turnout and show these ladies how awesome the YA community in Utah is! Go team. (I did a little cheer and it was about as terrible as you would expect. Ally=not a cheerleader.)

Also, I’ve been getting a lot of requests for school or library visits and it makes my day. I LOVE being in a classroom and I love teaching and presenting. The bad news is that my time is really limited right now. With taking care of my cute kids still at home, traveling for the tour, revising CROSSED, writing Book 3…I’m not doing a ton of school visits. But I am doing some. Please click on the FAQ for more info on visits.

Also, thank you all for your wonderful comments on that last post. It meant a lot to me (and my dad).

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

    The tour sounds like fun, especially since you get to spend it with someone.

    I remember traveling for work and it wasn’t so bad if I traveled with someone.

    Ally- Just finished your book and I was SOOOO jazzed about it I came straight to your website. Low and behold you will be in Salt Lake in February with some other amazing authors (3 of which I recieved their books for Christmas!) I live in Idaho but am stoked about going up to Salt Lake to meet you all and get my books signed! Thanks for making sure SLC was a stop!

    Hi Ally,
    I’m from Australia, so I won’t be able to come. ) :
    But I was wondering if you would be able to do a Q&A over email with me for my blog?
    I hope that’s fine!

      Hi Romi! Feel free to contact my publicist (her e-mail is in the FAQ section of my site). Penguin handles all interview requests for me right now. Thanks so much for your interest in Matched!

    Sounds like a fun way to do a book tour (and super fast and busy).

    Since there will be so many fun authors at one place do you know where they’re going to hold it? I imagine TKE would be too cramped for this. I need details. 🙂 How exciting!

    So exciting! I’m going to try to come in to NYC for your book signing there on Feb. 9th! That would be so fun to see you again….and get my book signed! 🙂
