OOOoooOOOOooo!

Ever have one of those days where things are totally crazy, and you've got paint all over you, and there is a speck of drywall dust in one eye that just WON'T COME OUT, and you're a little bit behind on your edits, and your house looks like a tornado went through it, and a bunch of people are going to come over to said house that weekend, which is bad, and then you learn that your book was named to the American Library Association 2012 Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers list?

I HAD THAT DAY YESTERDAY!

Quick Picks are books with widespread appeal that are recommended for teens who, for whatever reason, don't like to read.

AND I WROTE ONE.

*thrilled*

*house is still messy, though*

Your house can be messy. It just makes you look like an eccentric artist or something. :)

Congratulations, and, Hello!

Came across your blog while researching zombies (valid research, I assure you.) and absolutely love your style of writing. Am a hopeful author myself, looking to publish soon, and your site give me great enthusiasm - and a good chuckle! Thank you.
