I'm happy to announce that I'm now being repped by the awesome Michele Rubin at Writers House. :)
This amazing 3D-animated book trailer was created by talented artists Jesse Cabrera, Michael Jaso, Alicia Samela & Ali Phelps under the direction of Jason Wiser. I am thrilled to share it with you & invite YOU to share it with everyone else!
To celebrate & spread the word, I'm running a "Pay It Forward ARC Giveaway Contest" on my blog from now through May 7th, so please come, check it out & thanks to everyone in the Tenners for being such an unbelievable support while I was (im)patiently Ms. Wait Waiting McWaiting!
I *finally* feel like a Tenner (and Elevensie)! WOO!
