Hello mah friends!
First of all, I want to break out the pimp hand and give my lovely friend, Jackie Morse Kessler, a resounding smack.
Jackie’s first book in her new YA series about the four-horsemen of the apocalypse, Hunger, has been released. I adore these covers, and I’ve heard Jackie read from this book–it sounds fabulous:
So go forth, propelled by mah pimp hand, and buy!
In personal news, I’ve restarted the C25K. I fell off the exercise wagon with the move–I go to the gym, but randomly, not enough, and not on a firm schedule. So I’m using the C25K to get back in that wagon’s driver’s seat! To keep it challenging, I’m starting it off at a much higher pace than I was ever running. I’ve learned that a) if I were a car I’d be a hearse and b) for real running (and not ferocious waddling) I really do need to wear my fancy, uncomfortable running bras. OUCH.
In book news, I’m planning on having a Write-a-thon this weekend, in which I finish my Very Rough Draft of Eye of the Tempest. We also have finished cover art. I love it, and I’ll be showing it off as soon as we get the heads up.
Also, Tempest’s Legacy is nearly upon us!Â On November first, I’ll start vlogging some teasers, to get you all addled with an . . . . . . tici . . . . . . . . . . . pation . . . . . .
Finally, for those of you in the central/eastern PA region, I’ll be doing a signing in Lancaster. Here’s the info, which is also on my Upcoming Appearances page:
What: Reading, Chatting, Signing in Lancaster, PA!
When: Saturday, November 6, 2010, 2:00-4:00 pm.
Where: Borders #41; 940 Plaza Blvd; Lancaster, PA 17601
Hope to see you there! It will be my first solo signing, and the first event I’ve done that I didn’t organize (knowing I’d have a good turnout), so I’m nervous.
Now I’m off to teach, but see y’all soon. I hope you’re enjoying fall as much as I am. Mmmm…Boots and sweaters. 🙂
