Grey is finally here!!!

greyOkay. To say that I’m beyond excited right now wouldn’t give what I’m feeling enough, I don’t know, oomph. And, no, this has nothing to do with my agent or my picture books. It’s actually about my brilliant and talented critique group peer and friend, Christi Whitney, and her a-MAY-zing debut YA novel Grey, which launches… wait for it… TODAY!!! (Check it out at your favorite indie bookstore, or at Barnes and Noble or Amazon.)

If you want thrills, chills, and romance… woven into an incredibly well-told story… THIS is your book, kids. And this is just the FIRST of a three-book series, published by Harper Voyager. I’m not just saying all of this because Christi is my friend (honest engine)– this novel really delivers on the suspense and page turns (as in you won’t want to stop turning them)!

You know how when you find a good thing, you want to share it with the world? You just want to tell everyone? Well that’s how I feel about Grey. Now that it’s finally released, I can’t wait for everyone to read it!

Oh and if you want to see the trailer for it, check it out here.

Happy reading!!

P.S. And for those of you who are curious about my critique group, Trail Mix, of which Christi and I are members, here’s a fairly recent photo. Yes, I’ll admit it, there was some (non-cosmetic) Photoshop work done since not all of us were in attendance at that meeting. Ignore! This group inspires me darned so much… I can’t even begin to tell you. And what talent! I’m so proud to be a part of it. I am 100% sure that I’ll be posting about each one of them in due time. (By the way, that’s Christi– now internationally-published author–third from the right!!!)…
