If you pre-order my new book (thank you!) you can enter to win a set of swag including a lil robot pin, postcards, a bookmark & some art prints. You have until March 7th to email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A few other things: Barnes & Noble have named The Loneliest Girl in the Universe one of their top 15 YA books of 2018! I was NOT expecting this book to make it to any of the end of year round ups, so I’m a little blown away right now.
It has also made it to the semi-finals of the *book shimmy* awards! You can vote for it at http://bookshimmyawards.com if you wish! Thank you to everyone who has voted so far.
I spoke to some bloggers about The Quiet last week, which was so FUN.
