This week has been great.

Tuesday night's release party was incredible. Thank you to all the people who rolled out. I can't wait to share pictures with you. If anyone has some, please send them to me and I'll try to post them.

Kelly Bristow and Brenda Price hosted me as a guest author with Edmond Memorial High School students during the day. These students were incredible. They loved reading and writing. Plus, they asked great questions. I was impressed. (When a boy told me my shoes looked like Elphaba's from Wicked, I knew I was among my people.)

As if the workshop with the kiddos wasn't wonderful enough, the release party that night was even better. The library was decorated with fairy wings and frogs. Circle of Friends book club had delicious treats for people attending. Best of Books was there with stacks of Glamour--and the sold out! I heard they're ordering more, though, so drop by to get your copy.

Tonight was a signing at Herwelden mansion. Authors from Oklahoma sold their books. I was hanging out with the likes of William Bernhardt, Ally Carter, Kim Donner, and Billie Letts. Yeah, I felt pretty cool. Best of all, lots of pals from my hometown dropped by to get a copy of my book. It was great to see them. Again, if anyone has any pics, I'd love to post them on my blog!

Thanks to everyone who has made this week a total success.

Now, if Max will go to sleep, I can get some beauty rest. We need to leave Tulsa in just a few hours. I get to meet the students at Russelville Middle School in Arkansas tomorrow morning at 11:30.


  1. I really love your book. I had met you at Hasting in RSVL, AR. You signed my copy of your book Glamour. I sat in bed for two days reading it and just could not put it down. The story was beauitful and I'm also 16years old and it reminded me about some friend of mine who are always looking for other things to make them feel good about themselves. It was just awesome.
    Thank you again for signing my book I will always cherish it.

  2. Lacy,
    I'm so glad you enjoyed the book! Thanks for letting me know that it resonated with you. That means a lot to me. I love meeting my readers as well as getting feedback from them. Please tell all your friends about GLAMOUR. Maybe they'll request it as a gift for the holidays. ;)
