Ack! Everything is Happening at Once!!!!


So it's been a crazy year so far and it's only getting crazier!

As of this weekend, Nightshade City's cover debuts, along with my new website and a book trailer! Yes, I made one! Is it super-duper and full of awesomeness? Hmmm...my husband loved it! Wait until you see the NIGHTSHADE CITY cover! Omar Ryyan is a total genius!

The Nightshade City ARC hits the mean and lean streets of Chicago on Monday! THIS MONDAY! April 25th kicks of the IRA (International Reading Association) convention. My publisher, Holiday House, will be there, along with scores more! I'll be at the HH booth (1910), sigining my ARC from 12-2pm on Monday the 26th, so please come say "hi" if you plan on attending! Al Gore will be speaking at the convention, along with several awesome authors such as David Adler, Ingrid Law, Kevin Henkes, Judy Cox, Tom Lichtenheld, Lisa Yee and many more! Ack! Such talent!

I can't believe I'll finally get to meet the Holiday House folks, along with some brilliant authors! My first question to myself when I was asked months back if I could attend, "What the heck will I wear?" ;)

So check back this weekend for some big reveals! Cover, new website and book trailer all coming your way!

xoxo -- Hilary

    I'm excited to see this cover and the trailer. Probably won't be at the convention, but if you want to send me a signed Arc, I'll be happy to post a review on my blog :)

  11. Oh, Hilary, if you weren't worried about wardrobe I'd be calling 911, LOL. Yes, you have a big weekend, and yes, you are *so* ready for this. *shakes fist* I want to see pictures of your big day.

    BTW, there's a certain writing group that wants to know your big news when you are poised to share. Make sure to drop by and fill us in whenever that day should arrive. We're all waiting with baited (heh) breath. ;)
