Just a public thank you to Sarah Dessen, who totally indulged my request that she read Violet on the Runway last year, and then gave me great encouragement. To top it off, just after having a baby, she mentioned my book on her widely read blog. We went to the same high school--and CHHS people look out for each other. Thanks, Sarah! And Ally Carter, whose soon-to-be-bestselling Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy is out next week!, did a big old post (scroll down) on a few great books that are just out, including Violet on the Runway. Dontcha just love it when authors are nice to each other? I'm totally paying it forward when I get some fans.
