I have so many things to be excited about right now!
CRAZY comes out SO SOON! The June 12 release date is less than a month away, and I can’t wait for you to meet Connor and Isabel. I love these characters so much, and I hope you will too.
If you live in the SF Bay Area, don’t forget about my Release Day Event at Diesel Books in Oakland (Tuesday, June 12 at 7:00 pm; 5433 College Avenue). I’ll read a little from CRAZY, do a little Q&A, then sign some books and hang out with you wonderful people.
Did I mention that CLEAN is now available in paperback? So cheap! So lightweight! Speaking of CLEAN, it was just nominated for the 2012 Northern California Book Award in Children’s Literature-YA, along with Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) and Instructions for a Broken Heart by Kim Culbertson. The awards ceremony is on Sunday, June 10 and is free and open the public: 1:00-4:00 pm, Koret Auditorium, SF Public Library.
Another fun event is on Wednesday, June 20 where I’ll be reading at The Business Comedy Show, which has been called “the best alternative comedy show in San Francisco” by the SF Weekly. Not sure I qualify as an alternative comedian, but my pal Bucky Sinister had enough faith to invite me so I’m trusting his judgment. Show starts at 8:00 pm @ The Dark Room Theater: 2263 Mission Street, San Francisco. It’s only $5!
