Happy belated New Years. I hope you all got amazing shit for Christmas and if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you at least made out with someone really hot on New Years.

Sorry I’m lame and don’t get around to posting very often. It’s been a hectic holiday. Here is a picture of all my big “births” of 2012—three books and a baby. It was a crazy crukronsky year. Crukronsky is a made up word. Yep. Define it at will.


Why is my head cropped out of this picture, might you ask? 1) I haven’t gotten highlights in over a year and it looks like I’m wearing a dirty mop on my head. 2) I have a double chin in this photo. All photos that capture my double chin are immediately confiscated/burned/deleted/never again talked about.

Okay, now for some BUSINESS talk. Gather round, come closer, read the next sentence carefully: The paperback of FIRST COMES LOVE is coming out in a few months. Yes, my book will soon be made much more affordable to the masses. I don’t have an official release date yet; it will be in April or May. What I want to do is embrace this release with a flourish of, um, publicity I guess. So, anyone who wants to partake in the spring promotion of First Comes Love, with its new and improved (in my opinion) cover, then please leave a comment below. Some of you have already left me a Twitter or Facebook message, so I’ve already added you to the list. If you are a reviewer or blogger, I would love to add you to the publicity team. Gracious.

Finally, MIDDLE GROUND will be released in Germany in FEBRUARY! Hells yes. Very, very excited for my German fans to read more of Maddie and Justin. Here is the cover for the sequel:

Gotta run. Diapers to change. Football to watch.
