REVOLUTION Is Finished!
At last! I’m so pleased to announce that my new young adult novel – Revolution – is finally, really, truly finished! I completed the final edits last week and turned them in, and though the book itself won’t be published until October 12, an Advance Reader Copy will be available at BEA this week. (For readers unfamiliar with BEA – the acronym stands for Book Expo America. It’s a huge publishing industry trade show taking place at the Javits Center in NYC.)
If you’re attending the show, please come visit me! I’m signing copies of the ARC at Random House’s booth – #4341 – from 1:30 to 2:30 on Thursday, May 27. For a complete list of my BEA events, please click on my Calendar page.
A bit about the new book: As you might expect from the title, it’s about a revolution. On one level, it’s about the French Revolution and one of its smallest victims. On another level, it’s about the revolution inside, about the changes we human beings go through as we struggle to make sense of our world.
All the books I’ve written have taken me on a journey. To places in the real world and places in the mind, where I’d never thought I’d go. But the journey Revolution took me on was the hardest, weirdest, and most wrenching. I think it might also be the most rewarding.
If you pick up a copy of the Revolution ARC, drop me a line and let me know what you think! I’d love to hear from you.
With best wishes,
