News You Can Use...Eventually

The publication date for my new YA novel, 11 THINGS I PROMISED, has just been announced: April 5, 2016. You have a whole year to save up $9.99 to buy it. If you start now, you'll be able to buy, like, 12 copies. Think of it as a Christmas Club for Cathy.
THE SUMMER OF EVERYTHING will also be released on that date! It includes two summer adventures and road trips galore. :) It's an "omnibus" (I love publishing terms) that includes one of my favorite overlooked titles, WISH YOU WERE HERE, and the popular trip to the Outer Banks vacation read, PICTURE PERFECT. That's a whole lotta postcard jargon, but I've earned it over the years.
I'll post cover images as soon as they are available.

A Quote to Inspire All of Us

This came from a very unlikely source. An embarrassing source, even. I was doing the crossword on Sunday and right next to it was the daily horoscope. Leo. I skimmed it. Here was the last sentence:

"Lean into your originality."

I'm developing new work and starting new books, trying to take risks. It's a bit intimidating, as you probably know. For some reason this line helps me.

As long as it doesn't only apply to Sunday, January 25, I should be fine.
