« A note to those who threaten me with the loss of their readership
Not up to me »
On 16 September How To Ditch Your Fairy will find its way on to the book shelves of the USA and Canada. I am vastly excited.
Why am I excited? you ask.
I mean, yes, this is my fourth novel. You would think that I’d be jaded and bored with the whole thing by now and yet I am not. Here’s why:
There’s an extract from the book here, also a list of known fairies, and a glossary.
So I don’t seem like a total self-promoting bore let me mention some other books that are out this month.3 Books that are so brilliantly awesome your brains will explode with joy as you read them:
Although these books could not be more different they all have one thing in common: I read them in one sitting. Completely unable to put the book down. Go forth and read!
And while you’re at it check out Scott’s interview with Lauren.

You need to come farther south in California. Like, the Los Angeles area. *cough*

I second Justine on the list — though I have yet to read Bliss because one of my co-workers currently has it in her stash. Please come to Seattle. For the anti-car lover Seattle is currently banning driving on select streets on Sundays and in Jan. we will start charging 20 cents per paper/plastic bag.

Though I understand that you want Justine in YOUR area…
BUT Justine come to SF!
Thats where ALL the cool people are!

Pssst, Liset, have a look at the appearances. Chanel was dissing SF because I’m doing an appearance there.

hey, no offense to SF! I’m just being jealous ‘cuz all the awesome authors go there! Sorry for being rude, though. I didn’t mean it like that.

I have been looking forward to reading Skinned. That you say that it’s your favorite YA science fiction novel of the year just makes me that more eager!
Currently, my favorite YA science fiction book is Neal Shusterman’s Unwind. Yeah, I know, it was published in Nov last year – but that’s technically within a year.
My favorite non-science fiction YA novel that’s still in hardcover is Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.

i was just joking Chanel.
I don’t go around saying “trippin”
but yay for Justine in SF!
I hope she can make it to LA too!!!
