May updates

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Yes, RAGE had a huge blog tour in April. No, I didn’t blog a lot about it (although I was pretty good about tweeting every day). Sorry, sorry, sorry. I suck. I was on deadline with LOSS.

Here’s a list of all the terrific sites I visited on the official RAGE Blog Tour, with their reviews of RAGE or their interviews with me, or my guest posts (whew!) :

Literary Escapism

Bitten By Books

The Compulsive Reader

The Book Smugglers

Presenting Lenore

Mundie Moms

The Story Siren

Book Faery

Bookworming in the 21st Century

Green Bean Teen Queen

The Neverending Shelf

Lauren’s Crammed Bookshelf <--- An A+ review!!! Yow!!! In Bed With Books

Wicked Awesome Books

Confessions of a Bookaholic

Tales of the Ravenous Reader

Rebecca’s Book Blog

SciFi Guy

A Backwards Story

The Hate-Mongering Tart

Thank you again, everyone!

The good news: I handed in the draft of LOSS to my editor, on time! The manuscript (66,600 words) is much longer than either HUNGER (44,000 words) or RAGE (55,000 words). It looks like LOSS will be a spring 2012 publication. Rah! Details to follow when they are available.

The great news: RAGE had a terrific launch, with lots of amazing reviews, including this one from Mrs. Giggles, who says: “The vicarious beat down that leaves me feeling wonderfully bruised all over is the sign of a story that succeeds in reeling me in, emotionally and intellectually, and damn if it doesn’t feel great.”


To everyone who has been reading and reviewing RAGE: Thank you, hugely. I hope you’ll enjoy LOSS even more! (Yeah, okay, you have to wait a year. Sorry about that!)

And hey: a new Post Mortem interview! The amazing Jeri Smith-Ready’s latest book, SHIFT, is now available ((DROOL!!!!!!!! CAN’T WAIT TO READ IT!!!!!!!!)), and her character Logan is interviewed by Death. Complete with playlist! Rah!

I’ll be at the Rochester Teen Book Festival next week, and I hope to see you there. 🙂
