A Big Thank You!

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has told me, since BEA and such, that they enjoyed THE DUFF.

I've been so nervous to hear what everyone would think of my book once they read it. It's a strange feeling knowing that other people are reading something of yours. I guess I thought I'd be ready for it - I used to write semi-popular fanfiction and had others reading and commenting on that. (Don't ask me where you can read it - that is between me and my 15-year-old self!). But this feels completely different. Probably because these are my characters, not ones I borrowed from my favorite fandoms. It's so intense and amazing and terrifying at the same time!

But I will say, that just one good review can make me smile and walk on air for a week. I've been lucky enough to get a few - between goodreads and book blogs. Having just one person love my charcters or get something out of my story would be enough. It would make it all worth it. KNowing there are several at this point . . . when the fianl book isn't even out yet . . . well, it's more than I could have hoped for, and i"m so honored and happy.

So on this 4th of July, I just want to say a big Thank You! Thank you so, so much to everyone who has either blogged, goodreads reviewed, or contacted me just to say you liked it. It always makes me smile, and I want you all to know how much I appreciate it.

Now, I'm off to watch Eclipse with my lovely writing buddy, Emila Plater! I hope you all have a happy holiday weekend!

Kody, I am look forward to seeing and reading your first novel. Ms. Hampton has told me that she will be putting it in the library so that all the McLean County kids can read it! I hope your second book is going well, and check out my blog for some photos that I have posted from my European teaching adventure!
