book tour time

TGIM! This week is an especially exciting one for me. The City Love book tour continues this week with the Epic Reads Spring Tour in IL, CA, NV, and TN!

Epic Reads Spring Tour 2015

Hopefully this tour is coming to a city near you so I can see your smiling face. But no worries if not. You can still snag a signed copy of City Love from Books of Wonder. They have a bunch of signed copies from our launch event last week!

Can I just tell you how much fun I had with Katie Cotugno and Maria Dahvana Headley? Their new books, 99 Days and Magonia, are so hot you best read them with a fire extinguisher handy. And they are the sweetest, funniest, most interesting ladies you could hope to meet. This will be one epic week indeed.

Thanks to everyone who has supported City Love and for showing your #citylove on social. Stay tuned to my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for fabulousness from the road.

Much love ❤

Who am I touring with? Oh, only Katie Cotugno and Maria Dahvana Headley, who have two shiny new books out that will rock your world. Our publisher wasn’t kidding when they called this tour epic because it is going to be legen…wait for it…dary. Legendary!

Hope to see you on the road 🙂

For those of you in the New York City area, I’ll be kicking off the Epic Reads Spring Tour tonight with a launch event for City Love at Books of Wonder, 18 West 18th Street, from 6:00 to 8:00pm. How much would I love to see your smiling face? So. Freaking. Much.

one week from now…

City Love will be out in the world! The April 21 release date is almost here and I could not be more thrilled.

My book tour kicked off this past weekend at TeenBookCon in Houston. What an incredible event. You can feel how charged the energy was just from this pic:

Everyone knows I love a good full-circle moment. I was on a panel with the enchanting Alexis Bass, whose debut novel Love and Other Theories catapulted to the top of my To Read list after hearing how good it was. You know how sometimes you meet someone and it feels like you already know them? That’s how it felt with Alexis. I was like, “We’ve met before, right?” Wrong. We only virtually met online years ago when Alexis was reading my blog and commented on a few things…including my hot date with James Franco. As you can see in this super cute pic of us, we are clearly sisters from another mother:

What’s up next for my book tour? I’ll be in Chicago for LitWorks on April 18, back home in New York City for the City Love launch event at Books of Wonder on April 21, then on the Epic Reads Summer Tour in Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Nashville the week of April 27. I’ll also be at the RT Booklovers Convention in Dallas in May. You can always find my book tour schedule and a full listing of upcoming events on the events page of my website.

This week is City Love sidewalk chalk week on Instagram! We want you to show your city love by sharing inspirational quotes and warm fuzzies with sidewalk chalk in your town. Just post your pic on Insta with the #citylove hashtag to join the party. I’ll be posting some of your pics all week on my Instagram to spread the love.

Selected #citylove pics will also feed into the City Love page, where you can pre-order the book and watch a behind-the-scenes video of the cover shoot.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen me at my most dorktastic in this City Love video, you might want to check that out. I play all three girls of City Love. And cram my face with pancakes. Enjoy ❤

the most dorktastic thing you will ever see me do

In case you didn’t know how dorktastic I was, you should watch this video. And then you will know.

Why? Because in this very unique author video, I play my own characters from City Love. All three main girls.

Yes, this video is totally dorky. In a fantastic way. Which makes it dorktastic.

This was probably the most dorktastic thing you will ever see me do. But, you know. Never say never.

Special shout-out to the classy ladies of Epic Reads, Margot and Aubry! Totally honored by their cameos ❤
