Got a call from my editor this afternoon. I could hear him smiling through the phone. My book is d-o-n-e. His words: “It’s heartwarming, heartbreaking, funny, insightful and all the things we want a memoir to be.” My book is officially off to production. And I’m officially off to pop some champagne and celebrate!!!! I did it, you guys. It was impossibly IMPOSSIBLY difficult–did I mention I wrote THREE full drafts? But today, it’s all worth it. I’m really proud of the book I’ve written for you. “Girl at the End of the World” releases March 2014!!! p.s. I totally thanked YOU READERS in my Acknowledgments. Because OBVIOUSLY. Wouldn’t be here without you. I love you people. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox. EE. p.p.s. nothing says GLAMOROUS like a sparkly cocktail dressed with a plastic playground in the background (and my dog’s butt), AM I RIGHT?? Just keepin’ it classy, yo.
It’s real, you guys. It’s happening. My book is now available for pre-order on Amazon! The release date is still March 2014, but my publisher–Convergent Books, a new imprint of Random House–has it up on the Convergent Books website, too. It’s super exciting to see my AUTHOR profile up next to Addie Zierman and the other wonderful authors at Convergent. Squeeeeeeeee! *happy dance*
