SLJ Best Book & TTEN Teaser

I'm so thrilled to share this news with you. UNDER THE NEVER SKY was selected by School Library Journal as a Best Book of 2012. I really can't describe to you how honored I am. How incredible it feels to see my name alongside writers who I look up to immensely. This is one of the "life achievements" for me. Right up there with the big ones. Truly, I'm just blown away. Thank you so much for supporting the book. And SLJ, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Here's something fun. This was sent to me by a friend who has read THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT. Sexy, yes? I actually love the scene this excerpt comes from, and can't wait for you guys to read it. Just five more weeks!

Goodreads Semi-Finals

Quick and dirty, since I stink.

(Allow me to explain. I rode a horse today. So it's a good horsey kind of stink.)

1) UNDER THE NEVER SKY has made it to the semi-final rounds of Goodreads YA Fantasy/Sci-Fi Best Book of 2012! Such an honor. Man. The books that my book is in the running with (against? with?) are insane. I'm so honored. If you liked UTNS, please vote! Much appreciated!

2) I am almost done with drafting INTO THE STILL BLUE, and guys, I might be in love with this book. It might be the best one I've ever written. Or drafted. We shall see, but I'm excited.

3) Cross your fingers for me. This Wednesday my agent presents my new project/brain child/idea thing to my editor. I can't get into specifics, but this idea is keeping me up at night. If I can get it anywhere close to as epic on the page as it is in my head, then... just whoa.

4) I need to go shower!

Thank you for coming by! Stay awesome.

And to all the Veterans out there, THANK YOU!
