Holy Crap Suzanne Collins Blurbed my Book

And I have a cover! And I'm doing my first ARC GIVEAWAY!

Thanks to everyone at Scholastic, especially the awesome Phil Falco for the beautiful and foreboding cover.
And of course, a very special thanks to Suzanne Collins. As a writer published by Scholastic I had the fleeting thought that maybe they'd send my book to Ms. Collins, but I never thought something like the above blurb would actually happen. The day I got the email saying that not only had she read it but that she liked it was was willing to tell the world that...well, that was one of the most amazing days of this entire publication journey so far.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this real! Ok! On to the important stuff. With this picture came a stack of advance copies of my book and they're burning a hole in my pocket!  Want one? Just leave a comment on this blog for a chance to win!

And hey, while you're at it, I'd really appreciate it if you became a follower of this blog and/or followed me on twitter.
