It’s hard to believe that one year ago today, July 2nd, 2013, The Life List hit the shelves. And what a year it has been! I owe a huge debt of gratitude to all of you, my wonderful family and friends. Your love and support and enthusiasm these past twelve months mean the world to me. The book has exceeded my every expectation
What an extraordinary year 2013 has been! With the publication of The Life List came countless unexpected joys. I’ve reunited with old friends, met wonderful readers and fellow authors, and became acquainted with some terrific librarians and booksellers. But perhaps the greatest joy has been the feedback I’ve received from my readers, and learning that The Life List touched them in some meaningful way.
On this magical journey to publication, some moments will remain with me forever. Most are glorious memories, like being in Chicago when The Life List sold, which is set in the Windy City, calling my parents to share the news, or finding a text from my agent, telling me the first foreign rights had been purchased.
The winner of April’s advanced copy giveaway of The Life List is Salome Hernandez! Congratulations, Salome.
And the winner of the March raffle for an advanced copy of THE LIFE LIST is…

The advanced copies of THE LIFE LIST! It’s still four months until my publication date, but these copies give me hope. My words are now in book form—-an actual bound copy that I can hold in my hands!
Without further ado, I present to you the cover of my novel. I hope you love it as much as I do.
