Insert amusing subject line right here...

I'm posting because I try to post every Saturday but I'm afraid I have nothing much to report.

My deadlines have been pushed up so I'm racing to try and get the second draft of my new book (which I'm still not allowed to tell anyone about) done for early next week. The good news is that I had a breakthrough moment at precisely 11.56 pm on Wednesday night and the book actually has proper plot points and an emotional resolution now. All good things. The bad news is that this is the not so fun part of being a writer; where you're fighting the clock and your own little, nagging voice of doubt, which is trying to persuade you to curl up on the sofa and watch telly instead of getting to the end of the next scene.

So, this is just a brief intermission to let you guys know what's happening in my world this week. Would it be boring to plug the US release of the Diary Of A Crush trilogy again? Probably but, hey, go and buy them!

OK, chapter whatever (this is how they are listed in the draft as I can't keep track of the numbers) beckons...

I want to say that I am a new reader of the Diary of a Crush trilogy. I bought the first book yesterday and I am finished now. I'm not much of a reader but like I was telling one of my friends I felt like I was a fly on the wall in one of those cafes in Paris watching Edie and Dylan's every move!! I was captivated by the words. Thank you for the wonderful world of Edie!! I will be getting the other 2 books tomorrow!!! I can't wait!

Hey, my name is Allison and I am from America. I just wanted to thank you for getting me into reading. A few years ago I went on a very crappy vacation, in florida with my family. I was 13 and wanted to be around people my age and not my annoying younger cousins. I made my mom take me to a mall and for the first time in my life i bought a book, guitar girl, it was the most amazing thing I ever read and I couldn't force myself to put it down. I also read pretty things, and that was also a very good read. Tonight I will be begining the third book of diary of a crush (I finished the second today). I just wanted to say thanks for opening me up to a whole new world and writing about things that I am currently going through. You are my favorite author and my idol. THANKS SO MUCH!
