what does that even mean, anyway! the first leg! it sounds ridiculous!
okay total digression here, but am i the only one who gets idioms confused? i tend to say things like "that just flew right around my head!" and "it's like i've been living under a cave or something!" and "don't fill all your eggs with one basket!" and i don't know, but somehow my words of wisdom tend to go unappreciated.
i'm back for a bit before i leave for NYC this weekend (COMICCON! you are coming, yes? OF COURSE YOU ARE! you should totally come to THIS THING WHERE I WILL BE ahem ahem.)
but i have a couple of things to tell you before i disappear again:
- after much deliberation, the details of the SHATTER ME launch party have been finalized. i will have more information for you very soon (next week at the latest), but! if you are anywhere in and/or around the Southern California area and you are interested in attending, please save the date for November 16th! (the book releases on the 15th, but the launch party will be held on the 16th.) and you're all invited! it will be fun times, i tell you. you'll get to meet my mom.
- SHATTERDAY IS ALMOST HERE! so. Shatterday is one of the very exciting things that Harper has created in anticipation of the release. it's on a SATURDAY (get it? SATURDAY? SHATTERDAY? i lolled with glee when i first figured that out) -- October 22nd, to be exact. and all the details are on the official FB page. it's a 24-hour online event offering exclusive previews from the book (chapter reveals every hour), amazing giveaways, and a Livestream-thing with yours truly. i don't actually know what a Livestream-thing is, on account of i've never done one before, but i think it involves me talking into a camera. live. anyhow! maybe, if you like, you could attend? :D
- the first chapter of SHATTER ME is online! i don't really have many coherent words for this. only that it feels like someone has pulled my pants down in front of everyone and i am smiling a lot and trying to ignore the fact that my pants have been pulled down in front of everyone. if you want to read it, you can find it here. ahhhhhhhhhhhh
that is all the things for now!
but holy crap guys, the book is out in a little more than a month.
please excuse me while i go search for my brains, they seem to have fallen out somewhere.
