Want another chance to win a copy of THE BODY FINDER??? Check it out, Danielle at The Book Blogger is having a great contest. And by great, of course I mean she's giving away a copy of The Body Finder. The contest ends September 10th and it's EASY to enter!!!

Also, I've been invited by Melissa Marr, Kelley Armstrong, and Alyson Noel to join their SMART CHICKS KICK IT TOUR:

Sept 2010 Tour **** 8 Cities **** 6 Authors/City **** All YA Paranormal

Our Tour, Our Way

Author tours are usually organized by the publisher. All we have to do is show up, which is great, but we started thinking maybe we'd like to try something different. Organize our own tour, just the way we want it. Pick the cities. Pick the authors. Organize the events. So, in Sept 2010, we'll do just that.

It's Your Tour, Too

Setting up our own tour is great. But it's not really about us. It's about the readers--getting out and meeting them. We'll be looking for input from readers to help us make this the kind of tour they want, too. And because we can't get to every city, we'll also be setting up a virtual tour component. We're still in the planning stages, but watch this page for more details.
