Hello! I am so excited to share the news that my new book, UNFORGIVABLE, releases today! It is the sequel to INVINCIBLE (which also releases today in paperback), and starts right where the first book left us at a very nasty cliffhanger. You’ll find out what happens to Evie and Marcus, and this time it will be from Marcus’s point of view.

Unforgivable Book Cover

UNFORGIVABLE is my seventh book, and it’s my first written entirely from a boy’s perspective. It tells the story of Marcus as he tries to sort through the wreckage of his relationship with Evie, and as he finally faces the ghosts from his own past that he’s tried so desperately to outrun. It’s dramatic, romantic, and at times very dark, but with enough hope and transformation to make it all worth it. I promise!

Here’s a little more about UNFORGIVABLE and INVINCIBLE if you’re interested.

For my Asheville, NC area friends, I am part of an awesome author panel at Malaprop’s Bookstore next Wednesday, May 11, at 7:00 pm, with my pals Robin Constantine and Amber Smith. I hope to see you there! (Click HERE for info about my upcoming events in Athens, GA and Charlotte, NC.)

And in case you’re wondering, here’s a great article about things you can do to support your favorite authors.

Thank you so much for your support, and I hope you love reading UNFORGIVABLE as much as I loved writing it!

xoxo

Hello from beautiful Asheville, North Carolina!

As some of you know, my family recently moved from Oakland, California to the mountains of western North Carolina. After three long months on the road with a toddler and a yappy dog, we finally came the end of our epic road trip, and we’ve spent the last nine months making this funky town our new home.

But that’s old news. What I’m thrilled to tell you about it the release of my new book INVINCIBLE:

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS meets GO ASK ALICE in this dramatic romance about a teenage girl who survives a terminal cancer diagnosis, only to get trapped in the deadly spiral of addiction.

INVINCIBLE is on sale TODAY at your favorite local bookstore and these wonderful places:

An audiobook is also available! Check out the retailers above, or Audible.com.

Here’s a bit more about INVINCIBLE:

Live hard. Love hard. Don’t look back.

Evie is living on borrowed time. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer several months ago and told that by now she’d be dead. Evie is grateful for every extra day she gets, but she knows that soon this disease will kill her. Until, miraculously, she may have a second chance to live.

All Evie had wanted was her life back, but now that she has it, she feels like there’s no place for her in it—at least, not for the girl she is now. Her friends and her parents still see her as Cancer Girl, and her boyfriend’s constant, doting attention is suddenly nothing short of suffocating.

Then Evie meets Marcus. She knows that he’s trouble, but she can’t help falling for him. Being near him makes her feel truly, fully alive. It’s better than a drug. His kiss makes her feel invincible—but she may be at the beginning of the biggest free fall of her life.

I am honored to share this book with you, and I hope you are as moved by reading Evie’s story as I was writing it.

If your local bookstore doesn’t have INVINCIBLE, please request that they order it! Here are some other things you can do to help your favorite authors:

  • Buy our books on, or as close to, the release date as possible
  • Request that your local library carry our books
  • Share news about our books on social media like Facebook and Twitter
  • Leave positive reviews on Amazon and Goodreads
  • Share the news by good old fashioned word of mouth

I would be grateful if you’d do any of these things to help spread the word about INVINCIBLE. It is a great joy to write books for y’all. Thank you so much for your support.

Hugs,
Amy

Happy New Year! I hope your 2015 is going well so far. I have a good feeling about this year. For one, this is the year of The Sheep, which is my Chinese astrological sign. It is also the year my new book INVINCIBLE is being released (on April 28th), the first in a two-book series. I cannot explain to you how proud I am of this book.

If you’re a book reviewer, blogger, librarian, or other such industry types, egalleys of INVINCIBLE are now available through Edelweiss.

AND… I have some ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) of INVINCIBLE to give away! These are promotional copies the publisher prints before the book goes through final proofreading, so they have lots of fun typos and stuff. (Is finding typos in books only fun for big nerds like me?)

I haven’t decided exactly how or when I’m going to do the giveaway yet, so stay tuned for more info.

Happy New Year!

I am so incredibly excited to finally show you the cover for INVINCIBLE, the first book in my two-book series with Katherine Tegen/Harper Collins (the same folks who do Veronica Roth’s DIVERGENT series, among other amazing books).

Hey y’all! (I live in North Carolina now, so I get to say “y’all”).

I am so excited that DAMAGED comes out in TWO WEEKS! On October 14th, it will be released into the world and I couldn’t be prouder. (Pre-order to make sure you get it on release day). I have tons of exciting guest posts and special online events coming up, so make sure you follow me on Twitter to get all the updates.

Damaged book cover

If you’re in the Asheville, NC area, I’ll be hanging out at Malaprop’s Bookstore on Thursday, November 6th, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm to sign some books. Stop by to say hi and pick up a signed copy of DAMAGED or one of my other books. They’ll have them all in stock. I would love to meet you!

It seems crazy to be talking about a book that comes out in April of next year, but I’ve got exciting news about INVINCIBLE too. In less than a week, on Monday, October 6th, at exactly 8:00 pm EST (5:00 PST), I will be revealing the cover RIGHT HERE on this website! It is nothing like my other covers, and it is so freaking beautiful I cried a little when I first saw it. I’m serious, it’s that awesome. I’ll also be telling you a little more about the story, but until then, here’s a little teaser:

INVINCIBLE is book one of a two-book series, pitched as Go Ask Alice meets The Fault in Our Stars, about a teenage girl who survives a terminal cancer diagnosis, only to get trapped in the deadly spiral of addiction, and the boy who would do anything to save her.

Intrigued?
