Hey, I Know Her!

There's a familiar face on the Random House Teens homepage this month!


Yes, to my delight and astonishment, Random House chose ME to the their Spotlight Author of the Month! I provided them with this photo--with thanks again to my good friend, Jari Blakely Kirkwood, who took it and about 100 other pictures of me in the park that day--and a short bio.

I have since heard that Random House usually only spotlights "established authors," so excuse my excessive pride while I shout this honor from the rooftops.

Check it out!

And just five more days 'til How to Hook a Hottie hits shelves!

I bought it today! It said "Likely In Store" on the computers at Borders, so I asked for it and they got it from the back.

TinaFerraro said...

Thanks, Jessica, Wendy, Paige & Jessica!

And Meggy! Woo-hoo! You're the first one I've heard of to buy it!

Meggy said...

Wow, I feel special. I should read it tomorrow so I can be one of the first to read it!

Besides critique partners, agents, editors, etc.

TinaFerraro said...

Yes, Meggy, but it's the "job" of the agent, editor and critique partner to read it before it comes out. A reader who gets a copy out of backroom before the release date? That's total cutting edge! :) You are waaay cool in my book...
