Freak out, web sites, and books, oh my!

updated photo
 I've been in denial about  busy with preparing my Lowell Lecture for tonight at BC, when I find out there's been a room change and I can't do some of the things I've been planning on. Nothing like a little last-minute MAJOR FREAK OUT. 

Okay. Breathe. Breathe.

To avoid dealing with the problem at hand, let's talk about other fun things, shall we?

My website has been recently updated. Click on the MODELS book cover to go to the book-specific site. Download free music, read about how the novel came to be, and check out the Calendar and Press page for info on where I'll be in March.

Speaking of web stuff, today I'm visiting THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH...err, the blog by author Carrie Ryan. She's showing the MODELS book trailer. Stop by before the zombies attack!

If I make it out alive, tomorrow I'll be talking with  Leigh Brescia.

Lastly, a BIG congrats to Cynthea Liu and Snoop! Cyn's first book, THE GREAT CALL OF CHINA, releases today! Pioneeress of AuthorsNow!, member of debut2009 , and all-around cool person, Cyn has lots to celebrate. Yay!!!

Okay, back to my freak out.
