Release day for THROUGH HER EYES was on April 5. Already, my book has been out in the world for almost a week! Unbelievable. I had big plans to post photos of it on bookstore shelves, photos of me giving copies to Marcy, Linda, Anita and April, the members of my critique group, photos of my big, beautiful box of author copies. But I've been too crazy busy to even pick up my camera, and besides, my house is dirty and I'm afraid all the dust bunnies would show up in the pictures!
It's a good kind of busy to be, so I'm not complaining. I've been a guest on several blogs. (Check out all my past and future blog tour stops at the Teen Book Scene) . I've been making arrangements to go to Austin on Thursday for the Texas Library Association convention. I've been planning a May Texas "Chills & Thrills Teen Book Tour" with several other YA authors. (Take a look at the line up of authors and tour stops on the Chills & Thrills site. Check back often, as we'll be adding more information as the time for the tour approaches.) And I've been preparing for a booksigning in Amarillo on Thursday.
Meanwhile, I need a haircut, a manicure, a HOUSEKEEPER AND A COOK!! Any volunteers?
If you're in or near Amarillo, Texas on Saturday, I'd love to see you at Barnes & Noble!
