I've been remiss in updating you all on various exciting things, but this is primarily because I've been buried in book 2 and writing away like crazy. I've been doing the national novel writing month (Nanowrimo) competition with fellow YA novelist, Paula Yoo, author of the fabulous Good Enough.
The goal is to write a 50,000 word draft in November. While we're not trying to accomplish that goal per se, we've formed a buddy system and have been keeping each other on track as we push through our respective second YA novels. Paula live blogged about our writing session together yesterday, here.
But, I have other news!
This coming Monday night, November 24 at 6:30PM I will be doing my very first reading with the wonderful Jay Asher, acclaimed author of the NYT bestselling YA novel, Thirteen Reasons Why.
We will be reading at Vroman's Bookstore
695 E. Colorado Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91101
and you can find out all the information here.
If you're in the area, please come and introduce yourself!
I will post more updates soon, including information about my upcoming book events in Montreal in December, so stay tuned.
