Winners! And an announcement about online stuff...

I hope you all enjoyed the Virtual Launch Party! I've never done something quite like that before. If you have any suggestions for doing something like this again, please let me know (either here or you can email me).

As for me, I have a small and probably irrelevant announcement: I am going to be taking a bit of a break from the online world for a while. I'll still be around, but between travel and deadlines, I won't be able to post frequently, nor answer all Twitter @-replies. I want to, but I'm a bit overwhelmed. Also, I figure you guys would rather have another book than some inane online shenanigans. :)

So, without further ado:

The winners of the blog side of the Virtual Party are....


  • YA Book Centralfeatherlyhearts
  • Secret of the Stars: Priya
  • Page TurnersJulie W
  • Mundie Moms: Donna
  • League: Jen R.
  • Novel Thoughts: Rhys
  • Bookalicious: Bee
  • Hypable: Alyssa/Tabitha

Rats. Oh, well, I didn't really expect to win.

Congrats to all of the people that did, though! :D

I'm totally stoked about this water bottle I've won!! I will most likely use it for ice tea :D

I did think that maybe next year a livestream of the bookstore launch would be a welcomed addition. That along with exactly how it was this time it would be extra spectacular! :)

Wow. Wow, wow, wow. I never expected to won something. Because I never won anything.
But here I did. And when I got your email I literally screamed because I couldn't believe I finally won something. And not just something! Across the Universe and other swags. That's just amazing.
Thank you so much :)
