Release Day!!

I’m not going to go all sap on you today, but I have to say, when I was sitting on the floor of my apartment, writing out the first draft of One Wish (longhand, in a 5-subject notebook—what?) I didn’t really think I would ever see the day when it was actually published and heading out into the world.


Pinch me now, because the pre-sale link disappeared from Amazon yesterday, and One Wish is officially on sale.

(A quick side note: the Amazon link may say that One Wish is temporarily out of stock, and that’s okay. If you’re interested, I hope you’ll still go ahead and order it. WestSide will begin filling orders v. soon. Also, you can expect links to Books a Million and Barnes and Noble to go live in the coming weeks. One Wish will be available in store through those chains, as well.)

A few links for you on this extraordinary release day:

First, I have a book trailer. It’s not as awesome as Cindy Pon’s, though (Congrats to Cindy on her Meg Cabot shout out yesterday! Link to the trailer in her post:

Anyway, this is something I did myself with my measly little Microsoft Movie Maker (which kept shutting down on me every time I made a change. Grrr). If nothing else, watch it to hear an excerpt from Greg Maroney’s “The Reluctant Ballerina.” Greg is *such* a talented pianist and composer, and I *heart* his music.

The link is here:

Next, remember all those Debs posts? That’s for our blog tour. Now it’s my turn! Each week I’ll post a new list of links that will (hopefully) take you to an interview. You’ve got time-wasting material until the end of May, people. Use it wisely!

Here are my locations for the rest of this week:

April 24-April 25

4/24 Pam Bachorz

(Find out why Grandma Grace should read One Wish!)

4/25 Saundra Mitchell

(Do I prefer Zombies or Unicorns?)

Also, here’s the link to a One Wish interview by Karen Kincy, a member of the Tenners!

(Karen’s debut novel, Other, will debut in 2010! Go Karen!)

Also, I want to give a special shout out to my publishing sister at WestSide, C. Lee McKenzie. We’re both releasing today!! Visit her at

Happy Release Day, C. Lee!!!

And . . . I hope YOU have a Fabulous Day!



P.S. is coming soon, I swear! I’m a one-woman show. Hopefully in the next few days . . . fingers crossed!
