Secrets and Shadows is Nearly Here...UPDATES!


Secrets and Shadows
officially releases on 2/15 but reports have been coming in already about bookstores stocking and releasing copies early. Even has started shipping pre-ordered copies--I'm hoping that means people who ordered from them actually get it on release day...

Friday at The Voracious Reader in Larchmont, NY I got to do my first signing for Secrets and Shadows (and I still don't have my author copies yet--and neither does my editor!). So I got to pet the books, love 'em a little, sign and send them out but none were left to come home with me! I even signed some to be shipped to other states--yes, people had called in to get me to sign them there! I LOVE that!

Tuesday (2/15) is the Book Birthday Party at The Green Toad in Oneonta, NY (7pm). And this is the store where I do most (I guess I can't say all now, after The Voracious Reader, can I?) personalized copies. SO. If you can't meet me in person but you want copies of the 13 to Life novels personalized, contact The Green Toad. If you contact them before the 15th, Michele can get me to sign them the night of the party and may be able to ship them on the 16th...

Then Saturday (2/19 at 1pm) is the Book Release Party at Colgate Bookstore in Hamilton, NY. We'll kick the day off at 8am with a Red Cross Blood Drive (and participants get 20% their total bookstore purchase that day AND if you sign up in advance you'll be entered to win a special prize pack).

Sunday (2/20) at 1pm I'll be joining author Nancy Holzner (the Deadtown series) at Flights of Fantasy in Colonie (Albany, NY) for a signing and talk. Sunday the local NPR show Telling Tales also hosts an interview and reading with me.

Saturday 2/26 at 2pm I'll be in Ithaca at the Borders there talking about writing, publishing and my books (and signing them, of course).

Saturday 3/5 I'll be back in Albany at The Little Book House in Stuyvesant Plaza to chat and sign starting at 3pm.

There may be one last NY stop in nearly mid-March and then I do Lunacon, well--maybe? (Rye Brook, NY), Noobiecon (Utica, NY), BEA (NYC), TBF (Teen Book Festival in Rochester, NY), and RWA (NYC). During all that books 4 and 5 get written and revised.

Then Bargains and Betrayals releases 8/16/11 (it's already available for pre-order) and I do more touring/signing.

Bargains and Betrayals is out that early?!? :O!
*Does happy dance!*
I cannot wait until I get my hands on a full copy of "Secrets and Shadows" (I did receive my chapbook in the mail the other day- thanks so much- I guess my mailman doesn't hate me too much yet... ;) )...

Hi Avery! Yep, we're on a 6 month release schedule. :) So every 6 months (until book 5 hits shelves) there will be a 13 to Life novel. :) Glad your mailman came through. :D <3 <3 <3
