It’s official. Black Hole Sun has launched and is ready to “rocket readers to new frontiers.” It’s hard to believe that twenty months have passed since I emailed a logline to my editor and she told me to go for it. A lot of hard work has gone into making the beautiful book (the cover shimmers), most of it not mine. To celebrate, I’m going to do what every YA fan in the world seems to be doing tomorrow—buying a copy of Mockingjay and settling in to find out how a girl from the Seam conquers all. I’m also taking a bit of a break from social media. I’m looking forward to lurking instead of promoting.

Thanks to everyone who helped Black Hole Sun reach the shelves, and thank you, too, to everyone who helps it leave the shelves.
