Remake Giveaway!

Is it just me, or is this the most insane summer ever? Seriously. Between camps and tours and conferences and playing hostess to a stream of visitors staying at my house, I think I'm about to explode. Please tell me I'm not the only one.

Among the chaos, though, a lot of great things have been happening for me and REMAKE. My publisher has done some amazing things to bring my book exposure, and a lot of cool stuff is in the works that I hope to share soon. In the meantime, I'm doing my best to enjoy the journey and remain grateful that my publishing dream is coming true. Less than three months until release...eep!

This email ad was sent out last week from Publishers Weekly--
resulting in one of PW's highest click-through rates of all time. So cool!

After meeting with my publisher earlier this week in which they key phrase was "deep breaths, deep breaths," the next several months of my life have gone from crazy to CRAZY. So apologies if I can't get to everyone's posts or have to pass on critiques or helping with reveals and such. I love supporting my fellow writers, but a little break shouldn't hurt, right?

I did promise an ARC giveaway, so here's my first attempt at one of those Rafflecopter thingys. I hope it works. :)

What have you been up to this summer?

I'm chasing old ideas...

Only 3 months - that's so very exciting and I can't wait to read it! I'm sure the whole process is pretty stressful and this summer has seemed pretty crazy! It's all worth it for your publishing dream to come true. :)

I'm so excited to read this one! It comes out on my daughter's birthday. :) I think a little you-became-a-mom-ten-years-ago-today present is in order for me. ;-)

You know I am over the top excited for you and have always been one of your biggest fans. I can't wait to read Remake. :)

And- yes, I agree- this summer has been super crazy busy for me too. I thought I was going to be able to take it easy this summer and just cruise. Hardly! I have been totally bananas. Everyone wants to come and visit "the Shore" in the summer. I should start charging rent at my hotel/house.!! HA.
