Graffiti Girl Week At YA Fresh!

Today is May 14th, and tomorrow is the official release date for Graffiti Girl...


Graffiti Girl has actually been hitting B&N stores in different parts of the US. Here I was prepping for my big release day when GG has been trickling in at different locations. haha!

Tina was kind enough to join me in celebrating the release of Graffiti Girl this week and having a Graffiti Girl week at YA Fresh!

This week we'll have an interview with Tina and me, some fresh GG talk, and a contest for a chance to win a free copy of Graffiti Girl along with some little GG promo items like buttons, bookmarks, and stickers oh my. So stay tuned for some fresh fun!

I'll start off the week with a little character run down...
Angel is a teen artist. A little rough around the edges and really doesn't know her self-worth. She believes she can find it through her art. Even though she struggles with what is right or wrong, she has a good heart. She finds herself torn between two with a beautiful eye for detail, another who uses the streets as his canvas.

Miguel is the leader of a small town graffiti crew. He basically does what he wants to get what he wants. Right now he wants Angel in his crew. He's a bad boy and doesn't care what anyone thinks. He's also got a hidden feud with Track star and artist, Nathan...

Nathan creates art with classic beauty, and he wants to show Angel a different track with her work. But is it because he really is her friend or that he just doesn't like Miguel? And will Angel see past the differences in their lifestyles in order to find out?

Stay tuned for more sharing this week! :)

Kelly, thanks for saying I was "kind enough" to help out this week, but, uh, kindness has nothing to do with it. I am simply your biggest fan, and want the whole world to know how great your book is--and to go out and buy it!

On that note, "early returns" have come in--people I know who have read GRAFFITI GIRL--and everyone is really blown away with by it, especially the characterization, and her insider's account of the graffiti world.

It's going to be a fun week, and we hope to see you all each day!
