To continue my takeover of the internet, here is my first ever guest blog.

Now I can officially claim the stamp below:

As stated in my guest blog, I started writing at the same time I first became a mother.
Talk about over-scheduling.

It really was a long road, but I'm very happy to be where I am now, publishing my first book HOW TO DATE DEAD GUYS this summer (July 15th) with:

In fact, next week is the book cover reveal. I'm so excited for everyone to see how beautiful it is.

Have a great week and thanks for checking in.

This summer, you'll be hearing a lot from me, partly because I talk too much, and mostly because the blog tour for HOW TO DATE DEAD GUYS is approaching.

But my quest to take over the internet is not limited to the blog tour dates.
Oh, no. I'm greedy. (evil laugh)

So let's begin with an author interview.

Thanks for checking in and have a great day! :)

Just received my FINAL proofs, galleys, whatever you want to call them for HOW TO DATE DEAD GUYS!!!

Yes, this deserves three exclamation points. Be prepared for more of them, for I predict a liberal sprinkling of such punctuation tonight.

I'm even feeling so generous that I CARRIED a spider outside, instead of smushing its guts out in a Kleenex (but if it dares to come back inside, it's dead meat, man...). That's not my typical style. I may be a pick-up-worms-off-the-road-after-rainstorms kind of girl, but spiders don't usually see my gentle side.

Enough about spiders and worms. Let's talk about the book again.
All the edits look good.
We'll be sending out more ARCs (advanced reader copies) in the hopes of gathering more book reviews before the big day.

For me, this is big. Really BIG. (Not really about fish, but I love this movie and book, so I'm making this image work for me. And I hope you pick up this movie sometime--what a gem. Kind of a weird gem, but beautiful nonetheless.)

June 2nd is the book cover release date, but my son is more excited about the last day of school, a few days after that.

Sing with with me, Miss Piggy, "School's out for summer!"

July 15th is the date my words will be out there in the world, for all to see. I sure hope Emma makes some new friends. (She's going to need them, after what I put her through...)

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
