I know it seems like I haven’t written a blog post in a while, but I have . . . over at these wonderful blogs.  Check them out if you have a chance, although, I warn you, it’s me overkill. 🙂  But this is the month THE DOWNSIDE OF BEING CHARLIE debuts, so I’ve been spreading the word.  Actually, tomorrow is the release date.

Wait . . . tomorrow is the release date. I feel like there should be an exclamation point at the end of that sentence. I feel like I should be shouting this, like I should write it in big, bold font, underscored and italicized and possibly in flashing neon colors.  But the truth is, in my head, it’s more like I have to say this softly to myself for it to sink in. It still doesn’t seem quite real, but it is.   It’s been a strange and long journey to get to this point. There were many times when it didn’t seem like having a book published would really happen.  So, it’s really weird to be at this point, to know Charlie will be hitting stores tomorrow.

Tomorrow is the release date.

Maybe if I say it enough, it will sink in . . .

Anyway, here’s more than you’ll ever want to read about me, about writing, my favorite books, why I write YA, what I was like as a teen, etc.  In the meantime, I’ll be here, letting it sink in. 🙂
