IN LOVE

The ARCs for my next novel PARADISE (JULY 2011) have arrived! Double SQEEEEEE!!! Truly, I'm still so thrilled with having one novel published that I have to keep pinching myself that this whole author thing is real. And so is Book 2.

The fabulous Anna at Feiwel & Friends/Macmillan -- my publisher (still get excited every time I say "my publisher")-- forwarded the Macmillan Spring 2011 Catalogue to me. I love LOVE the write-up for PARADISE. Since it is the best way to introduce you to the book, I'm sharing below. Truly, I share it with anyone I see. As a matter of fact, the catalogue will be on view tonight in the concession stand before my son's basketball game. Yes, my other job is opening the concession stand. A glamorous life I know. Got your popcorn. Got your nachos. Got your novels.

So here's the awesome blurb for PARADISE:

We're in love.

And not just with the dreamy musician/cowboy nicknamed Paradise. We're in love with this story which even caused our copyeditor to "give up a few meals" so she could keep reading. It's deep and deeply romantic. Swoon.

Paisley Tillery is the drummer for a country rock band. If they can make it to the stage at the Texapalooza music fest, then Paisley will be closer to her dream of a career in music and a ticket out of her small Texas town.

Drumming and music are what Paisley has always wanted. Until the band gets a new lead singer, the boy from Paradise, Texas. With Paradise in her life, what Paisley wants, and what she needs, complicate her dreams coming true.

Thank you for sharing this! I've been on the look out for a book like this - and I've said it before and I'll say it again - it's SO important to talk up your books AND to offer a description and blurb. I have no idea how we ended up Friends on LJ - but I'm glad! Now I'm off to search for your first book!
