The Saving Maddie Blog Tour, Day 3

Today, I'm at Gwenda Bond's Shaken and Stirred, where I'm talking about the writing process for Saving Maddie. A few excerpts:
"There was only one thing I knew when I started working on this book—that it would be from a male’s POV."
and
"There were some things I did right in the manuscript, but there were a whole bunch of things I did wrong—I interrupted the dialogue with huge chunks of description, Joshua’s parents were two-dimensional, and I apparently had an overabundant zeal for the word “breasts”..."
Check out the full interview.

FYI - my birthday / book release day was great! Thanks for all the kind thoughts and words of encouragement. And thank you so much to the people that went out and picked up a copy of Saving Maddie. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

And for those of you that haven't gone out book shopping yet, here are a few other new releases to keep in mind:

The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

Front Page Face-Off by Jo Whittemore

It's Raining Cupcakes by Lisa Schroeder

Happy Hump-Day, everyone!
