I'm finishing revisions on the followup to Cold Kiss, doing a million other kid and house things, and coming off a weekend which included my oldest son's birthday and the sad anniversary of 9/11. I'm surprised I do remember my name, much less how to blog.
But so much is going on! The Dark Days blog tour started, and a copy of Cold Kiss (plus a short manuscript critique from me!) is being auctioned at the Read For Relief site, with all proceeds going to aid the Red Cross with victims of Hurricane Irene. (My fantastic, super-smart, adorable-as-hell editor Erica Sussman is also up for auction! Well, not her, but a critique from her. I think her husband and her cute dog would like to keep her.)
And there's a Dark Days trailer on YouTube! The Dark Days site has all of the tour information for next month, too. Check it out on Facebook. I'm going to five cities! FIVE. That's so weird and cool, I'm not sure I really believe it yet, to be honest.
I'm sure I'm forgetting something, since I forgot to put my kid to bed last night, and found her passed out with a book on the floor of her room. Did I mention I'm also up for Mother of the Year? BECAUSE I TOTALLY AM.
Stay tuned for another giveaway, a final teaser before the book comes out a week from tomorrow (I really don't believe that, even though I have all those gorgeous books right here next to me), and more fun stuff in the next few weeks.
First, though, more caffeine. Chocolate has caffeine in it, right? (I'm going to go with YES.)
