suze070709-1.jpg So today I’ve been excited to hear from people reading Violet on the Runway and Violet by Design, and I want to say thanks!
First, Glamour magazine included Violet by Design in a roundup along with other fashion books worth checking out (one of which was written by former ELLEgirl advice columnist Jfur Brandt Taylor–that’s her cute self pictured).
And if you haven’t read Violet on the Runway yet, Cat at Beyond Books just got to it and made me really happy with an insightful review (it’s also totally flattering, which is always good).
The prolific Jocelyn at Teen Book Review posted a review of Violet by Design that addresses the weight issue I tried to tackle in the book–I love J’s passion about that in her write-up.
So, just thanks, everyone. It means a TON TON TON to me. I am as happy as Jfur in that photo!

    Well, now! I was just as excited to find a comment from you on my blog. :)
    I am starting Violet by Design tonight, as I picked it up at lunch today. I REALLY enjoy how you write teens, especially the insecure, shy ones. I was never picked to me a model or anything, but I completely related to Violet’s secret desire to just be included in the “inner circle”. You got that down perfectly.
    Thank you for these books. Thank you for addressing issues that are important with a sense of humour and non-preachy attitude!
    Mostly, thank you for providing ME with entertainment!

    You, dear Melissa, deserve all the good reviews you do and will continue to receive. You write with intelligence and with urgency, and give us stories we care about.
