SKINNY Launch Party: A Recap

Everybody do the SKINNY
Well, Donna's SKINNY is out in the world and she hosted a wonderful event on Saturday in Fort Collins, CO to celebrate. (Though the weekend started out a little sad, since Katherine had to cancel due to a family emergency, but we felt her spirit there in spades.)

Fort Collins is an awesome town and despite the snow (you read that right, SNOW) there was a terrific crowd for the party. The first hour was devoted to book signing, mingling, and mini-cupcake eating. Then Donna read a hilarious excerpt from the novel as well as a couple heart-wrenching emails from fans that the story has already touched. To round out the event (and being the classy lady she is), Donna then gave a champagne toast.

So THANK YOU, Donna, for being the hostess-with-the-mostest! We had a fantastic time.

Your Best Book Workshop

Guess what?!

The Muses will be leading a session and chat on October 24-25th, 2012 during the fantastic, week-long YOUR BEST BOOK Workshop hosted by Free Expressions. We're super excited about this opportunity since many of the YA Muses' successes are closely tied with Lorin Oberweger and the Free Expressions' team.

If you're at all interested in upping your writing game quickly and efficiently, we highly recommend this workshop for writers at any stage. Take a look at the following for details:

As you can see, the other staff are world class: Agents Josh & Tracey Adams (Adams' Literary), Executive Editor Nancy Conescu (Dial Books for Young Readers), Editor Emma Dryden (drydenbks LLC), Roman White (acclaimed music video director/writer), and Free Expressions' Brenda Windberg and Lorin Oberweger.

We'll also be doing a school visit (10/24) and book signing (10/25) in Charlotte, NC.

Here's the details on the book signing:

Congrats on the launch party. So cool that most of you could be together for it.

I'm giving away an ARC of Skinny this week...number of entries are based on how many of my September books people have read, and Under The Never Sky was one of those reads.

Three cheers for a successful book launch/gathering. So glad Skinny is haveing a wonderful reception in the world :-)

A wonderful launch for a touching, wonderful book. I hope there will be a signing in Los Angeles soon!

Wish I could have been there! But you know I raised a glass to Donna on Saturday and am so excited that SKINNY is now out in the world.

Ha, I love the photo of everyone doing "the SKINNY." It looks like you had a blast! I was thinking of you this weekend, Donna! Congratulations!
