I kind of suspect this blog is going to get annoyingly self-promo-y in the next few weeks, but I have no CHOICE, you see, because that's the only thing I'll have to talk about that's halfway interesting.
I'm going on tour in October! To places! In the US! I'm excited. I don't have all the final events and times yet, but I'll definitely post a tidy list when I do. Right now it looks like I'll be going to NYC and Dallas and Chicago and various other places, and if you are near one of them you should commmmmme.
I have a website. It's a very pyootiful website. So pyootiful, in fact, that I think you should go look at it.
Did you look? Because of my hypnotic stare you looked. Great. I worked long and hard on my hypnotic stare. O-O
The website was designed by Marissa Hussey, who is a really great web designer and very patient with certain people who change their minds every three seconds, so if you
It's today. But besides being Book Release Day today is also a Tuesday, and Tuesday means classes until nine in the evening, so I don't have a lot of time to dwell on things.

I wrote a book, I worked hard revising it with my editor (and went a little bit insane for two weeks, but that's a WHOLE 'nother blog post), I did the very best I could do at the time, and now the book is not mine, but other people's, and you guys's, and the long-lost friend's who I don't really want to read it, but who wrote to me a few weeks ago and was like, "EEK, I'M TOTES GONNA READ YO FAIRY BOOK, EEK."
That's just how these book-things works, I suppose.
I very much hope you like that one I wrote. :)
