Con-Troll YA is This Weekend!



Just a quick announcement that Con-Troll YA is baaack! I'll be at the Adrian Public Library with an incredibly fabulous lineup of YA authors including Tracy Bilen, Kate Bassett, Courtney Allison Moulton, Eric Priuska, and *insert drum roll here* NYT bestselling author Ellen frickin' Hopkins!!!! (Yes, "frickin'" in Ellen's legal middle name.)

In case you've been living under a book tent--which, more power to ya!--Con-Troll YA is a young adult lit conference featuring author panels, a writing workshop (that I'm leading this year), and book signings. Stop by to make all your dreams come true...or at least get some swag.

See you there!

My Last Playlist


To celebrate the My Last Kiss paperback hitting shelves today (with some super fun extras if I may say so myself!), the Fierce Reads crew at Macmillan has posted the My Last Kiss Playlist on their Tumblr!

As you may already know, music is a huge inspiration for everything I write. I get most of my ideas from song lyrics and use the playlists I compile for my novels to push through the congestion of [uninvited] Writer's Block Parties. Music is magical in the way it evokes emotion and inspires. That same magic lives on every page of every book you love, which is why I'm so excited to share these songs with you. They're a tiny peek inside Cassidy's world and the friends (and frenemies) that made her afterlife...ish so thrilling to write about. And hopefully, for you, to read about.

You'll hear some of my favorite bands like Metric, Eisley, Dashboard Confessional, Radiohead and so many more. If you like what you hear, thank the artists by buying your favorites.

I'd love to hear which songs you like best and any new tunes that make you think of Cassidy's journey or Ethan's dreamy eyes and even Caleb's adorable skater hair. Let the song swapping begin!
