All Things L & P

Okay, guys:

This blog is going to be a little bit of bragging, a little bit of giving...

I got two wonderful reviews for my new middle-grade (pub date: October), Liesl and Po, and as this book is incredibly important to me--and, additionally, represents my first foray into writing for younger readers, I wanted to share them with you.

The first comes from Jenny Brown at Shelf Awareness, and the link is here. She even compares me to Dickens! :-O (That is roughly what I looked like when I read it).

The second, which you can find right here, is from the lovely blog Once Upon A Bookcase.

Okay, now that the bragging is out of the way, let's talk...SWAGGING! Last month was so crazy I COMPLETELY forgot to pick three readers to receive signed ARC's of Liesl and Po (missed the contest? Check it out here!), which means that this month I am going to pick six winners. Oh, yes, my friends. Six! So go ahead and enter now...because I promise that this month I won't flake!

Hope you all are staying cool...

I was trolling on the work computers and saw some amazing early reviews attached to it- lovely and haunting seemed to be by-words, which sounds amazing. Can't wait for this to come out!

Teril said...

Oh yes, I cannot wait.

WOW. Those are excellent reviews! But, after your other books, and after meeting you on your Dystopian Tour with Veronica Roth, I'm not surprised at all. :-) I look forward to reading it! (And I REALLY hope I'm lucky enough to land a signed ARC...)

By the way, I'm giving away signed copies of your books BEFORE I FALL and DELIRIUM on my blog:


I just thought you might want to know. (I loved them both, by the way!)
