Things I learned this year at RT about your favorite authors. Enjoy!
1) My baby loves Julie Murphy.
2) Amalie Howard can create a room full of awkward with three sheets of paper.
I can’t even handle my excitement when I get an email from one of my translators in another country. They’re all cool about it and I’ll all screaming at my computer screen and wondering if they can hear me scream because, seriously, I’m talking to someone in another country about my book. This is pretty much what happened, once again, when I heard from my Polish translator on Monday.
Once again, I find myself facing a whirlwind week of readers, writers, pink wigs, and plastic (real?) fangs. I’m talking about RT, people, and this year it’s descending on Dallas like a glittery, book-nuzzling, male-model-petting gal who should know better but, really, that’s what it’s all about so lay off.

kidnap me find me and force me to reveal Titans secrets say hello. So here’s a handy guide for doing just that.
So two nights ago I was lying in bed with my beau. He said to me, “What are some of your goals?” I replied, “Oh, we’re doing this? Okay. Yeah. I want to make Luci into a spy for the FBI or something, but she’ll be inclined to spill on all those delicious “top secret” things. I also want to look like Sofia Vegara, but also eat 10,000 calories a day. Oh, and I want to world dominate. And I guess end hunger or whatever.”
I read Tracked in it’s early stages, and it was absolutely, positively brilliant. Action-packed and imaginative, it stood out from so many other young adult books I’d been reading. And I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. Tracked is pitched as Han Solo meets The Fast and The Furious, and I couldn’t agree more. I adore this book, and Author Jenny Martin, so much that I want to give away a pre-order to you guys.
