THANK YOU, THANK YOU VERY MUCH

THE SWEETHEART OF PROSPER COUNTY hits stores today in paperback -- one year almost to the day of her hardback debut. She's all gussied up with a glossy -- and I do mean GLOSSY -- new cover, and bonus materials including a fun interview with me and an excerpt from my next novel, PARADISE.

As excited as I am about the paperback launch, I'm overwhelmed with gratitude for having been blessed with a fantastic debut year. Many thanks to the talented and supportive publishing team at Feiwel & Friends/Macmillan, the loaded-with-awesome-sauce folks at the Society of Children's Books Writers & Illustrators, librarians and booksellers across the country, bloggers, reviewers, and especially the readers. Thank you all.

In the spirit of keepin' it real, here's a link to my guest post on the Macmillan blog. A little about the start of a new school year, bullying, and THE SWEETHEART OF PROSPER COUNTY.
