Oh, man. The shame train. It has arrived.
I get SO embarrassed having to talk about myself and my books and my events and my this and my that. It always feels . . . braggy. And awkward. But with Isla and the Happily Ever After releasing in one week (EEP!), it's my full-time job right now.
Me talking about me. And my books. And why you should buy them.

*eats twelve more shame cookies*
The good news is that everyone is being very kind about it! Thank you for not unfollowing me on Twitter. Seriously. I swear I'll be back to talking about my cat soon. (Oh, who am I kidding? I have never stopped talking about my cat.)
But soon I'll also have time to see Guardians of the Galaxy, which everyone seems to adore, and season four of The Killing (LINDEN AND HOLDER OMGGGGG), and we can talk about those things instead! I can't wait!!!
In the meantime, my incredible publicist Lauren has been working her butt off, and she's put together a mighty fine tour for me this autumn. I'll be visiting so many of your cities! I'll announce these dates/stops within the next week, but today . . .
There is only *ONE EVENT* that matters:
RELEASE DAY CELEBRATION!
My hometown bookstore!
Malaprop's Bookstore & Café!
Asheville, North Carolina!
Thursday, August 14th!
I'll be reading and chatting and answering questions and signing books, and I really hope that those of you who live in the area will be able to make it.
Malaprop's has always been my biggest supporter. I am so grateful for their knowledgeable, enthusiastic, freaking awesome booksellers. They've DOMINATED the Isla pre-order campaign. (This one! There's still time to pre-order! Signed book! Free buttons! Free stickers! Open internationally!)
I can't wait to thank them in person.
I can't wait to thank YOU in person.
Thanks for being so patient for this book . . . and for being so patient while I have to promote it. We're almost there, guys. I promise.
