WE ARE IN ORBIT

TUESDAYS AT THE CASTLE was launched into the world this last month! Huzzah! And it's doing very well, if rumors can be believed. . . Thanks to all of you who were able to come to my signings!

For those of you who weren't able to come, you can now order any of my books, signed and personalized, from The King's English Bookshop in Salt Lake City. They will ship them right to your door, signed, stamped, and bookmarked! For more information on that, go here: http://www.kingsenglish.com/localauthors/290663

The other big news around here is that I am having baby number three in January. And it's a boy! Which is why you may have noticed fewer blogs, more ranting on Twitter, and why I have no signings scheduled after December . . .

This month is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. I keep getting asked if I'm participating, and the answer is: Well, EVERY month is NaNoWriMo around here! There's plenty of encouraging blog and information out there if you do a search, so I really have no wisdom to impart to any of you who are participating, other than to say Good Luck! And don't forget to revise AFTER November and BEFORE you send the novel out to an agent or editor.

And for those of you who weren't able to attend my signings, I now answer the two most Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What will your next book be?

It's PRINCESS OF THE SILVER WOODS, the third and final book about the Twelve Dancing Princesses of Westfalin. It will be out next fall.

2. Will there be a sequel to TUESDAYS?

Yep! I'm working on it right now. It will be out some time in 2013, and has no title yet.

So how's that for news?

And some good news for those of you in Idaho: Next week I will be in Rexburg and Idaho Falls. I'll be speaking and signing at the Madison County Library in Rexburg from 7-9 pm on November 17th, and signing at the Idaho Falls Barnes & Noble on November 18th in the evening (we're still settling on a time, either 4-6 or 5-7.)

Yay for babies! I will hug him and kiss him and name him George (which fits, BTW).

I think you should write 12 books for the dancing princesses--since there's 12 of them . . . I'm OCD like that. ;)

Congrats!

Congratulations! On everything! But especially the baby!

Congratulations on the new little one! Also yay for more books!!! And NaNoWriMo is really fun! I'm doing it this year, for the third time, and it gets better every time!

(for those who care, I have two blog posts on NaNo on my blog... http://www.mercury205.wordpress.com )

Congrats on baby number 3! Also, TATC rocked, and I have PotSW marked "as to read" on goodreads. And by "as to read" I mean I NEED IT NOW!!!!

I'm such a fan of your books, even my younger brothers know it:)

I just started Tuesdays last night and love it already - We have lots of fans of the Dragon series at our library and I can't wait to hand them this one!

I'm anxiously waiting for the library to get "Tuesdays at the Castle" in so I can read it. I'm so excited!

My husband and I went on a road trip last weekend. We always try and get a good book on CD to listen to when we road trip. We had three BCD's to try. They all flopped, which was when I picked up Tuesdays at the Castle (which I had brought along for some personal reading). My husband was a little hesitant, but I said, give it two chapters, if you want me to stop after that, I will. We both enjoyed it very, very much! Thanks for entertaining us for about 8 hours!!

I cannot wait for Princess of the Silver Wood. I hope you write 12 of them, too.

Congrats Jessica on the new baby boy (my opinion you don't have to listen to me) You should name him after one of your story characters :)
