New YA novel, awards excitement

Let me explain, no, let me sum up:

My next YA novel is coming out in the Fall of  this year. It’s called Love Is the Drug, it will be published once again by the fabulous team at Scholastic and Arthur A. Levine, and I can’t wait. It’s very different from The Summer Prince, but I think if you liked that one, you’ll enjoy this. I will wait to give details and a cover, but as a teeny preview: It’s a novel set in a Washington, DC private school in the midst of a global flu pandemic.

In other news, The Summer Prince made the longlist for the National Book Awards, Young People’s Literature category. It’s also made the Top Ten Rainbow List for 2014, which honors GLBTQ books for children and teens. Also, the YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults list. All very exciting, and I’m honored that this book has connected with so many people.

I have added an “appearances” section in my header, so if you’d like to meet me in person and maybe get a book signed be sure to check that regularly to find out when and where I will be.

    Hello how are you? I just read this and it’s great news. Congratulations to you. I cannot wait to read it along with The Summer Prince. I really need to read alot of your newer works. I’m going to try and get caught up on all of your books this year. Loved everything of yours that I have read so far and I really want more people to discover your works. I’m currently creating my first site which will be a book blog to help promote authors, their books and all the books I love and I’m going to add all of the books I’ve read including yours along with all of my reviews. Hopefully I can help spread the word. Been so busy lately but I plan on reading most of your books this year and cant wait. Congratulations once again on getting The Summer Prince on the awards list. Keeping my fingers crossed that you’ll win 🙂
