Welcome to 2017!

Hello! We made it! We're here! And I get to say the words I've been waiting for my whole life - 
my book debuts this year! 
In a little over 3 months, on April 11, THE STAR THIEF will officially be a real book out in the wild. 
Just before Christmas I found out that THE STAR THIEF is a Junior Library Guild selection, so it will be in thousands of libraries in the US and around the world, too!
The cover is also getting a few tweaks - I've seen the updated version, and it's beautiful. Hopefully I have something to share soon, so the rest of the world can see it! 
For now, there are already brand new 2017 books hitting the shelves today. This week other writers out there will get offers for their own debut novels. There will be new book deals signed for titles to debut in the coming years. Something wonderful about publishing is that there will always be  new, amazing, exciting books appearing on shelves. And now it's becoming real - I'll be part of it all. 

I look forward to writing more, reading more, and sharing some other fantastic debuts this year. 
In the meantime, I raise my coffee mug (the one my dear old scoundrel Ben got me for Christmas) in cheers to a wonderfully bookish new year.

May this year be the year of The Star Thief. I'm intrigued already.

Best of luck with your 2017 release.
