EMMY & OLIVER for $1.99!

Update: As of January 31, 2017, EMMY & OLIVER is back on sale for $1.99 on all formats! (And btw, that cozy cardigan I mention in the next paragraph? Still cozy fifteen months later!)

Happy post-Thanksgiving Monday, my friends! I can’t lie. I spent a lot of time yesterday shopping online, looking for the best Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Tryptophan Sunday deals. (Shout out to Ann Taylor Loft! Can’t wait for my new cozy cardigan to arrive!) But my new favorite deal has just landed:

That is, quite frankly, ridiculous. In a great way, of course! For example, the coffee I’m drinking as I type this cost more than $1.99. THE MIND BOGGLES.

So if you’d like to get ahead on your holiday shopping (if you’ve already finished, what kind of sorcerer are you???), or just want to buy yourself something to read while you’re stuck in Terminal 5 at LAX, may I present some handy links!


KOBO (support your local indie bookstore!)



I hope you all have a lovely start to the week, and thumbprint hearts for everyone!

AKA and GOING ROGUE giveaway!

Hello friends!

Here we are, 2015 and I’m already giving stuff away. Remember last year, when I gave away a few copies of EMMY & OLIVER and we all had a great time? Well, in honor of the new year, as well as the paperback release of GOING ROGUE, I thought we’d do it again!

If you’d like to win 1 of 5 copies of ALSO KNOWN AS and GOING ROGUE, simply comment below about why you’d like to win. It’s that easy! Comment away! Not sure what to say? Here are some sample ideas to get you started:

“I’d like to win because I haven’t read any of your books yet, but I’d like to!”

“I’d like to win because my dog ate a third of a pound of asiago cheese and caused enormous vet bills, so my book-buying budget has been cut in half.” This example may or may not be based on my personal life experience with Hudson.

“I’d like to win because I need a birthday gift for my sister/mother/brother/beloved relative.”

“I’d like to win because my kitchen table is wobbly and I think if I shove these books under the leg, it’ll help balance it out.”

See? Easy!

Also, a few rules:
1. The contest is only open to US residents. (I’m sorry, worldwide friends! I still love you!)
2. You can enter as many times as you would like, but you will only be counted for one entry.
3. The 5 winners will be chosen randomly, which means that you can be as clever or boring as you would like in your comment. I don’t judge!
4. The contest will end at 11:59pm on Wednesday, January 21. I’m talking to you, fellow procrastinators! Get your entries in now before you forget.

(Also, if you wanted to retweet, regram, or even reblog this contest, Hudson and I would be super-grateful. Spread the book love!)

But on the other hand, if you like buying books, you could buy the paperback edition of GOING ROGUE, which is now in stores! I personally love my local indies, but you can get it at Amazon and B&N, as well.

Do you have questions? Concerns? General life advice? Hit me.

Good luck with your entries, have a wonderful and safe new year, and enjoy your books!
