My new book UNFORGIVABLE comes out in exactly TWO MONTHS, so I’m celebrating by announcing an exciting pre-order campaign I’m doing with my favorite local indie bookstore, Malaprop’s.

Unforgivable_final cover

When you pre-order UNFORGIVABLE from Malaprop’s Bookstore, you will receive an extra super special gift: a limited edition, handmade chapbook of my short story “Under the Wall.” Even after publishing seven novels, this short story is still one of my favorite things I’ve written, and it was the inspiration for my first novel BEAUTIFUL.

So what are you waiting for? Pre-order UNFORGIVABLE now so you can be one of the first people to get it AND receive this awesome free gift AND support an incredible independent bookstore. What more could you ask for?

Click HERE to be awesome!

(PS: Malaprop’s can ship to you)

(PPS: If you want your book signed to someone in particular, you can make a note in the “Order Comments” section at checkout)

(PPPS: Pre-order campaign ends May 2nd)

Hello! I am so excited to finally share the cover for UNFORGIVABLE, the sequel to INVINCIBLE!

Unforgivable_final coverIsn’t it so beautiful?!

UNFORGIVABLE starts right where INVINCIBLE left off (at the very mean cliff-hanger), but the story switches to Marcus’s point of view instead of Evie’s. It’s a sequel, but I think you’ll enjoy it even if you haven’t read the first book yet. Marcus will fill you in on everything you need to know 🙂

And look what else I got:

Unforgivable ARCsA big pile of ARCs! And I want to give two of them away to YOU!

A big box of CLEAN paperbacks! Hot of the presses!

The paperback officially comes out May 8 in fine stores everywhere, but you can pre-order it now. Only $7.99 on the Simon & Schuster site. What a deal!

There are a lot of books in that box, and I’d love to do something good with them. I donated a bunch of my hardcover copies to the Association of Recovery Schools, and I recently donated a huge chunk of my YA library to the Sacramento Youth Detention Facility. I really want to find some more juvenile halls or adolescent rehab facilities to send copies of CLEAN. If you know of any places like this that have libraries, please send me the info!
