It turns out you can do a Goodreads Giveaway for a couple of months after a book is published — so I am! This time, of course, it’s for a hardcover copy of Sleeping Beauty’s Daughters. And I’ll sign it, too. So click on the widget below and sign up. Good luck!
The Books of Wonder Great Middle-Grade Reads event was so much fun! Joining me at the table were three other great middle-grade authors:
Dan Poblocki, presenting his really scary new book, The Haunting of Gabriel Ashe. And Morgan Keyes, with the second book in her fascinating Darkbeast series. And, all the way from Australia, Catherine Jinks, presenting How to Catch a Bogle, set in Victorian England.
Jennifer Dee (@rifflemg) live-tweeted the event — a first for me! — and my HarperCollins editor, Andrea Martin, stopped by.
And as always, owner Peter Glassman and the enthusiastic and well-prepared bookstore staff were the perfect hosts. They made us feel just a little bit like rock stars — a pretty amazing feat, considering the real life of children’s book writers…
It’s been all Sleeping Beauty’s Daughters all the time around here. I feel terrible that I’ve neglected Princess of the Wild Swans, which has its own exciting news. So…
NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK!

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a bookstore as wonderful as Oblong Books and Records nearby, nor a bookstore owner like Suzanna Hermans, who offered to host a launch party for Sleeping Beauty’s Daughters.
Nor an agent as fabulous as Jennifer Laughran, who came up with the idea for the party,
made the glorious cake pops,
and created quill pens as giveaways for book buyers. (If you want to know why quill pens…you’ll just have to read the book.)
Lucky me — it was an incredible way to send my book out into the world!
