Happy Birthday HAUNTED 2/1/11
Happy Birthday, Haunted!
It was a tough, winding road getting you here. But today’s your day. May your life be long and full. A week on that NYTimes list wouldn’t hurt, either, but no pressure. I will always think you’re special.
You survived a crazy teaching and promotion schedule, an editor change, a cancer diagnosis and surgery, and numerous other upheavals. But there you were anyway – the story I wanted.
You’re the middle child. Dreaming Anastasia will always be older. And there’s a third book coming next year. I don’t know what this means, but that’s okay. We’ll both figure it out together.
So go on, little book. I’m kicking you out into the world. (actually, you’ve been sneaking onto shelves for a couple of weeks now. You’re an independent little cuss and I already love that about you) Go. Grab readers by the scruff of their necks. Do your thing.
PS – and if anyone needs to catch up on Dreaming Anastasia, Sourcebooks – wonderful folks that they are – is offering free downloads on all e reader devices for one week starting today!! Check it out now!!
