Hello from beautiful Asheville, North Carolina!

As some of you know, my family recently moved from Oakland, California to the mountains of western North Carolina. After three long months on the road with a toddler and a yappy dog, we finally came the end of our epic road trip, and we’ve spent the last nine months making this funky town our new home.

But that’s old news. What I’m thrilled to tell you about it the release of my new book INVINCIBLE:

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS meets GO ASK ALICE in this dramatic romance about a teenage girl who survives a terminal cancer diagnosis, only to get trapped in the deadly spiral of addiction.

INVINCIBLE is on sale TODAY at your favorite local bookstore and these wonderful places:

An audiobook is also available! Check out the retailers above, or Audible.com.

Here’s a bit more about INVINCIBLE:

Live hard. Love hard. Don’t look back.

Evie is living on borrowed time. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer several months ago and told that by now she’d be dead. Evie is grateful for every extra day she gets, but she knows that soon this disease will kill her. Until, miraculously, she may have a second chance to live.

All Evie had wanted was her life back, but now that she has it, she feels like there’s no place for her in it—at least, not for the girl she is now. Her friends and her parents still see her as Cancer Girl, and her boyfriend’s constant, doting attention is suddenly nothing short of suffocating.

Then Evie meets Marcus. She knows that he’s trouble, but she can’t help falling for him. Being near him makes her feel truly, fully alive. It’s better than a drug. His kiss makes her feel invincible—but she may be at the beginning of the biggest free fall of her life.

I am honored to share this book with you, and I hope you are as moved by reading Evie’s story as I was writing it.

If your local bookstore doesn’t have INVINCIBLE, please request that they order it! Here are some other things you can do to help your favorite authors:

  • Buy our books on, or as close to, the release date as possible
  • Request that your local library carry our books
  • Share news about our books on social media like Facebook and Twitter
  • Leave positive reviews on Amazon and Goodreads
  • Share the news by good old fashioned word of mouth

I would be grateful if you’d do any of these things to help spread the word about INVINCIBLE. It is a great joy to write books for y’all. Thank you so much for your support.

Hugs,
Amy

Happy New Year! I hope your 2015 is going well so far. I have a good feeling about this year. For one, this is the year of The Sheep, which is my Chinese astrological sign. It is also the year my new book INVINCIBLE is being released (on April 28th), the first in a two-book series. I cannot explain to you how proud I am of this book.

If you’re a book reviewer, blogger, librarian, or other such industry types, egalleys of INVINCIBLE are now available through Edelweiss.

AND… I have some ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) of INVINCIBLE to give away! These are promotional copies the publisher prints before the book goes through final proofreading, so they have lots of fun typos and stuff. (Is finding typos in books only fun for big nerds like me?)

I haven’t decided exactly how or when I’m going to do the giveaway yet, so stay tuned for more info.

Happy New Year!

Amy

Happy November!

In the couple of weeks since DAMAGED released, I’ve been busy traversing the internet on my virtual book tour (since it’s impossible for me to do a real book tour with a toddler). Here’s a list of all the fun stuff I’ve been doing in case you missed anything:

  • Guest post at Nova Ren Suma’s The Book of My Heart series, in which I reveal the personal story behind CLEAN and my own struggles with addiction and alcoholism.
  • DAMAGED playlist at YA Misfits: Band Geek Thursdays, where I share the soundtrack for the book and some of my favorite songs.
  • Guest post at Dear Teen Me. My letter to a very lost and scared 16-year old me.
  • Interview with YA Highway, in which I discuss my venture into paranormal and writing difficult material.
  • Successful Author Talk at Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire, where I discuss various aspects of being a writer.
  • Guest post at Actin’ Up with Books, where I discuss the books that inspired me to become a writer.
  • Guest post at Writers Read, where I confess to sort of hating short stories.
  • My AMA (Ask Me Anything) at the YA Writers Reddit, where I answer a few questions about writing.

 

If you’re in the Asheville, North Carolina area, I will be making a rare physical appearance at Malaprops Bookstore this Thursday, November 6th, from 3:00-5:00 pm, where I’ll be signing books and trying to get rid of our leftover Halloween candy (if I don’t eat it all by then). Come by and say hi! They have all my books in stock, and it’s never too early to start Christmas shopping at your local independent bookstore.

Hugs,

Amy
