You may have noticed I’ve been a little quiet on the internet front the last few months, and for good reason. On April 2, I gave birth to my first baby!
Introducing Elouise Madrone:
She’s been keeping me very busy, tired and happy. I think we’re close to perfecting a configuration where she sleeps on my lap while I balance my laptop on the arm of my chair and type with one hand. My next book may be written entirely one-handed.
Speaking of books….
My new book OVER YOU comes out June 4th! You can pre-order it HERE. And read a Sneak Peek HERE. And stay tuned for info about the release party.
But even sooner than that, my book CRAZY comes out in paperback May 21! Order your copy HERE. And look at what I just got in the mail:
Maybe I should give away a few copies soon….
And now, last but not least, I am excited to officially announce that I just signed a contract for a two-book YA series with Katherine Tegen Books (Harper Teen/Harper Collins)! Here’s the announcement from Publishers Weekly:
Author of BEAUTIFUL and CRAZY Amy Reed’s new two-book series, INVINCIBLE, pitched as Go Ask Alice meets The Fault in Our Stars, about a teenage girl who survives a terminal cancer diagnosis, only to get trapped in the deadly spiral of addiction, and the boy who would do anything to save her, to Anica Rissi at Katherine Tegen Books, by Amy Tipton at Signature Literary Agency (world).
Woohoo! So excited to be working with Anica and her team!
Now back to the baby and one-handed writing….

Hey Bay Area folks,
I hope you can make it to my reading on Saturday, March 9th at Not Your Mother’s Book Club in San Francisco at the Opera Plaza Books, Inc. I’ll be joined by the lovely Corrine Jackson and Kirstin Cronn-Mills, two amazing contemporary YA authors. You do not want to miss this!
This will be my last event until at least June (I’ll be pretty busy having a baby), so I hope to see you there (PS: I’ll be humongous).
I plan to read a little from Crazy, plus a sneak peek of Over You, which releases June 4th. Hopefully there will be time for a Q&A at the end.
Spread the word!

Max would follow Sadie anywhere, so when Sadie decides to ditch her problems and escape to Nebraska for the summer, it’s only natural for Max to go along. She is Sadie’s confidante, her protector, and her best friend. This summer will be all about them. This summer will be perfect.
But that’s before they meet Dylan.
Dylan is dangerous and intoxicating, and he awakens something in Max that she never knew existed. No matter how much she wants to, she can’t back away.
But Sadie has her own intensity, and has never allowed Max to become close with anyone else. And Max doesn’t know who she is without Sadie.
There are some problems you just can’t escape.
Coming in summer 2013
