I’ll Be Yours: Chapter One

So the thing with pre-orders is you often can’t see the chapter sample. NO BUENO. My newsletter friends got a sneak peek of one of my favorite chapters/scenes from I’ll Be Yours, but that didn’t include the all-important chapter one. So…here ’tis! CHAPTER ONE Sometimes I stare out my bedroom window, find the North Star, […]


Books, Cats, and Cootchie Coo

By this time next week I will be back to school, ending one very short, but restful summer. But I don’t want to talk about that. Quit bringing it up. Rude. Don’t forget, if you want to get in the drawing for books 1-4 of Shelley Adina’s All About Us YA series, just go HERE […]

But Normally I Love McDonald’s…

Happy Monday! In a few weeks I won’t be able to say happy Monday without bursting into tears. It’s almost time to go back to s-c-h-o-o-l. Oh, summer…we’re so good together. Why must we part ways? I’m giving away two copies of The Big Picture this week. This is the last book in the Katie […]


More Breathtaking Pictures of My Vacation

Wow, thanks so much for all your comments about the book covers. Very, very helpful. It’s like the pigs vs. the cows around here. You guys could totally have your own musical. (“When you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet all the way. From your first cigarette, to your last dyin’ day!”) Thanks for all the […]


Boredom Busters and Other Ways To Waste Time

Twits, Twerps, and Meg Cabot

Happy Canada Day! Don’t forget, you can win a copy of the TOTALLY AWESOME book The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by following the directions on Monday’s blog. You have until Thursday evening. Around eight-ish. Central Time. Maybe Mountain Standard. I dunno. Depends what kind of mood I’m in. Okay, so I’m on […]

Hey, guys! As you read this, I’m in Scotland! I’m so grateful to awesome author Natalie Lloyd for stopping by my blog and letting us bug her with nosy questions. Don’t forget, we’re giving away a copy of her book Paperdoll. It’s a great book to read and have on hand for advice and encouragement. […]


A Special Guest Star!!!

Today I’d like to introduce my friend and fellow author, Natalie Lloyd!!! Natalie and I met. . .um, I actually don’t remember, but I know Brio magazine was involved somehow. Anyway, Natalie is one of those people you meet and just instantly click with. Like someone you know you’d hang out with if she left […]


Miley, Wal-Mart, and A Million Other Things

Happy Monday!!! You would think I’d be taking it easy, sleeping in, and living it up as a girl on summer break. But no. Things are CRAZY, CRAZY, CRAZY!!!  I’m editing two books, going to appointments, trying to pack for a big trip, AND memorizing a script for Adventure Week (VBS on crack)  for tonight. […]


Sugarland, Brad, and Chest Hair?

Have you seen THIS? While I like the homemade v-log aspect of it…a few things bother me. 1. It was funny when Justin Timberlake did it. Period. 2. Joe Jonas in a leotard. Or as Snow Fanatic Friend Holly’s brother says, manitard. 3. Does the boy not know a SINGLE word of the song? And […]
