Third Tiny Teaser for THE CURE FOR DREAMING

The cover reveal for The Cure for Dreaming is now scheduled for Thursday, April 17! As the date gets closer, I'm sharing occasional sneak peeks of lines from the novel. Here's your tiny teaser for today, a short excerpt from Chapter Three . . .


The corners of the papers curled and fluttered in the cool November breeze, and each notice resembled the other: a black background, tall yellow letters, and a pair of large blue eyes staring out from above the phrase YOUNG MARVEL OF THE NEW CENTURY!

Second Tiny Teaser for THE CURE FOR DREAMING

As the cover reveal for The Cure for Dreaming gets closer (approximately mid-April), I'm sharing occasional sneak peeks of lines from the novel. Here's your tiny teaser for today, a short excerpt from Chapter Three . . .


“I keep reading about that lunatic of a woman, Carrie Nation—the old hag who’s smashing up saloons in Kansas with stones and bricks and billiard balls.” Father stared me down with probing brown eyes that themselves resembled billiard balls. “Do you ever harbor urges to commit violent acts against men?”

A Small Teaser for THE CURE FOR DREAMING . . .

As I hinted in last week's post, the cover reveal for The Cure for Dreaming should be arriving sometime in the next few weeks. To whet your appetite, I'll share occasional sneak peeks of lines from the novel before the reveal. Here's your tiny teaser for today, a short excerpt from Chapter One . . .


My hands, weighing several tons, dropped away from his fingers, and my chin slumped to my chest. I sank deep inside the darkness in a languid, dreamlike fall. Nothing hurt or troubled me any longer.

I felt divine.

The Scholastic Reading Club Edition (and Other Paperbacks and Goodies Coming Your Way)

As a reader who LOVED to receive her Scholastic book order forms in school as a childand who still has many of her childhood Scholastic books sitting on her bookshelvesI am so thrilled to announce that the Scholastic Reading Club is carrying an exclusive paperback edition of In the Shadow of Blackbirds! I just got my hands on a copy (in other words, I ordered one through my son's school book orders, because I was dying to see it!!!), and here are some pics of the lovely new arrival: 

As I said, this is an exclusive edition that's only available through the Scholastic Reading Club and the Scholastic school book fairs. However, the Amulet Books paperback editionwhich will include a sneak peek of The Cure for Dreaming—is coming October 7, 2014, and it's now available to pre-order. The cover will be a slightly modified version of that of the hardcover, and I'll likely be able to share the artwork within the next month.

Also coming quite soon: the cover reveal for The Cure for Dreaming! Amulet Books usually debuts their fall catalogs around April, which means they'll probably be sending me the artwork to reveal late March to early April. Please check back for that announcement. I absolutely love the cover and can't wait to share it.

I recently turned in the copy-edited manuscript of The Cure for Dreaming, and the next stage will be proofreading the typeset version. Maybe . . . just maybe . . . I'll post a sneak peek of one of the pages when I receive them in April. The novel is scheduled to release October 14, 2014, and pre-ordering is already available for that one, as well.

I'm also madly working away on the first draft of my adult novel, The Uninvited, which I need to turn in to my William Morrow editor by June 2. I've been told that particular novel will more than likely debut Spring 2015, which feels quite soon. I'm extremely excited to share all of these upcoming projects with everyone and feel so thankful to now have multiple books—and multiple editions of booksmaking their way into the world!
