NIGHTSHADE CITY -- IN STOCK at Barnes & Noble Nationwide!

At my local B&N store!
My rats are right next to the Magic Thief!!
There is a day in everyone's life when you just can't help but flush with happiness and say to yourself, "I did it!" Well...today is my day! On Monday, Nightshade City got a fab review from Kirkus AND NIGHTSHADE CITY is now in stock at all Barnes & Noble retail stores nationwide, even Alaska and Hawaii! I needed an excuse to go to Hawaii and I think this qualifies! My book does not officially debut until October 1st, but it's not uncommon for retail stores to sell a first time author's book up to a month in advance! Once it hits their doorstep, it hits the shelves and mine got printed early (specifically for stores like B&N) so there ya go!

A bunch of my favorite Indie stores will carry it too (including my agent's!) and I'm just so amazed that my book is sitting on shelves across the country!

My 2 year old, Nomi, with Nightshade City!
She calls the book Juniper since he's on the cover!
Guess what she'll be for Halloween! ;)
You know, a nice iced Americano sounds good for lunch today...guess where I'll be going! ;)

  28. What a happy day! So excited for you. I may just pop out tonight and pick it up, assuming bed time happens on time with the kiddoes. Rats for Halloween sounds fun, but we've already talked our 6 yo into shaving his head and going as Ang, the last Airbender, and siblings as other characters form the show.
