Happy Tweets

You know what I love? Unexpectedly seeing the Twitter bird in the notification bar on my phone screen in the middle of the day. It’s like, Yay – here I am, stuck at work, and somebody out in the world is thinking of me!

I just wanted to share some tweets that made me smile this week. First, this one:



Not only am I psyched to get my first starred review ever, I was doubly honored to have the School Library Journal tweeting about it! (If you want to read the review, you can find it HERE.)

Then, there was this tweet:



That’s the very first occasion of a reader tweeting about my next book. She’s a marketing director at HarperCollins, which is why she got the early preview. And I’m not sure about that publication date, because I was told “Summer of 2014.” (But April would be awesome if it were true.) Still, first shout-out for The Eighth Day!

And finally, loved this one:



Theresa shared her first page with us in August for FirstImpressions. I am really excited that she’s getting interest on her manuscript, and if Marcy and I helped at all, I’m honored.


Get any good news lately?

  2. They be some *nice* tweets - much better than 75x "read my new book" tweets:)

  14. Nice of those little tweets to perk up your day.

    Me? Good news? The owners of a store in NC asked me to come up to do a book signing. That's small potatoes compared to all the great things that have been happening for you, but hey! I need to cut down on my potatoes, anyway. (Getting a little old lady spread here.)

  15. Yay, yay, and yay! All good news - you should be so pleased. (What's a "starred" review?)
