Announcing my new book deal for The Last Wish of Sasha Cade

Eek! Do you know how long I’ve been waiting to tell you all about my new book? It feels like forever, but it’s really been a few months. I am so unbelievably thrilled to announce that my new YA novel, The Last Wish of Sasha Cade, sold to KCP Loft for publication in the fall of 2018! I am honored to join the team at KCP Loft, which is the fairly new YA imprint of Kids Can Press, a publisher who just this week won the Publisher of the Year award from the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. I’m working with editor Kate Egan, who edited The Hunger Games series. (I mean, WHOA!)

From Publisher’s Marketplace:

SASHA is a book of my heart. It is a book born from a random thought that spiraled into a fully plotted novel before I could even write down the first word of my idea. It only took me 27 days to write the novel because the words just fell out of me and onto the computer. That has seriously never happened before, and I knew the book was special because of it. (I’ve sense hoped lightning would strike twice, but my next two novels are back to being difficult to plot. Such is a writer’s luck.)

I started calling it my “perfect YA book” or PYA for short, because from the moment Sasha Cade and her best friend Raquel Clearwater came into my mind, I knew it was The One. The book I’d been waiting my whole life to write. And now I am still dancing around, unable to stop smiling, because Sasha and Raquel (and swoony Elijah!) will be in a bookstore near you next year!

Until then, I’ll be sharing weekly behind-the-scenes info on The Last Wish of Sasha Cade, and looking forward to working on edits and having a cover reveal! This book publishing thing is an absolute dream (disguised as a ton of hard work). Totally worth it.

Announcing my new book deal with Swoon Romance

I am VERY excited to share my exciting news with you all! My newest YA book, BREAKUP SUPPORT GROUP, was sold to Georgia McBride at Swoon Romance! (An imprint of Month9books)

I may or may not have been refreshing Publisher’s Marketplace to find my first official PM announcement this morning:

Almost exactly one year ago, I got my first book deal for CITY OF LEGENDS and afterward I totally forgot to snap a photo of me signing my contract. NO worries! I remembered this time!

As soon as BREAKUP SUPPORT GROUP is added to Goodreads, I’ll be spamming you guys with links for it, but for now you should follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook and you’ll stay up to date with all the fun book news! 

My book deal, or: My favorite post of the year.


I am very excited to be writing this, and although I originally imagined this post to be a little more eloquent and well-spoken, I guess that’s not going to happen because I’m too flipping excited. So I’ll tell it to you quick and dirty:

Alloy Entertainment has acquired my young adult superhero series in a three book deal!


Yes, that Alloy Entertainment. The one with their logo at the end of every Pretty Little Liars episode.

The books you may know as the Powered series is now the City of Legends series. Alloy has taken my original self-published books and helped me rework them until they became about five billion times more shiny and fun than they used to be. Powered is now City of Legends, Overpowered is now The Valiant, and book 3, which hasn’t been released yet, is now Empire Rising.

Are those kick-ass titles, or what?

And here’s the better news: Since I’ve been holding onto this news for 9 months, you only have to wait 1.5 months to read them! All three books will release on 2/2/2016 and are available for pre-order on Amazon now!!

Thanks so much for sharing in this excitement with me, and if you’re a blogger who would like to help me promo the books closer to release date, please let me know!
