Surprise! GIRL ON A WIRE is e-arly!
By which I mean it’s a Kindle First pick this month, in advance of its official release October 1. What does that mean? Besides the fact I did some chair-dancing?
It means it’s one of four books that you can read in e-book a month early, if you have a Kindle or use the Kindle app on one of your devices. Prime members can pick one free, and anyone with a Kindle or app can snag one for $1.99. It’s that simple.
If your book is chosen for this program, obviously it means that more people are likely to see it. But it also means that your editor writes something about it. And in my case, Courtney Miller wrote something so gorgeous and beautiful, I hardly feel worthy of it. It’s truly been a gift to work with Courtney, Kate Chynoweth, Deborah Bass, Timoney Korbar and the whole Skyscape team, who have believed in this oddball book of mine since the start. And, of course, thanks always to my agent, Jenn Laughran, ringmaster of my career. So, do you like daredevils? Do you like feeling like the normal world is hiding secrets?
Go here to get your copy and read what Courtney wrote (or get one of the others — I’m sure they are all fabulous!).
Don’t have a Kindle? Well, this week I’ll be giving away this Kindle Paperwhite the publisher had made with an awesome custom cover *and* which is pre-loaded with the book. (I’ll give away a couple more later on.)

Champagne Not Included

What do you have to do to win? You can get up to two entries:
1) Sign up for my newsletter here by Friday, Sept. 5 at noon. (If you’re already signed up for the newsletter, you are already entered for this one.)
2) Drop a comment on the post at my blog something you love (or hate — if you’re some sort of deviant!) about circuses or daredevils.
U.S. only. And as always, sharing appreciated. And if you’d rather have the print or audio edition (why not collect the whole set? ;-), then October 1 will be here before you know it.
p.s. *waves* to any lovely people I met at DragonCon — which was such a treat. More on that later.

I love these promo-ads for Lois Lane: Fallout by gwendabond
This shows me, that finally, someone out there totally gets Lois. She’s a hero, in her own rights, without powers, but that doesn’t mean that she’s not capable of helping those that need help. And (side-ish note) so is Clark Kent. And this is why Superman falls head-over-heels for Lois. She does what he does, fight for truth, justice, and equality, without the powers! She fights the good fight with wit, smarts, and passion, and she stands up for all injustices. She defends those who can’t defend themselves.
 I mean that’s why Lois is my hero. Anyone can be Lois, and Lois can be anyone.
I love this! I’m so excited for this book!
You can preorder it now guys and gals via Amazon.

Fist-bump, glass-clink, high-five. <3 cloisismyfairytale:

I’m reading Jincy Willett’s AMY FALLS DOWN, and this whole scene, in which several writers discuss their “process” on NPR, is a little too realistic.

This entire book &#8212; and its predecessor The Writing Class &#8212; are hilarious, sometimes poignant, wonders. I give them as gifts all the time. Jincy Willett is my favorite cranky writer.

Super-sleuths took a page out of Lois Lane’s notebook and uncovered our secret. Here is the final teaser image for “Lois Lane: Fallout” available May 2015 from Switch Press 

Yay!
Meanwhile: On the road on the road on the road &#8212; if any of you are at Dragon*Con this weekend, come say hi.

This lovely Dutch poster from 1950 roughly translates as ‘spend your money wisely, buy books.’ Piet van der Hem is the artist.

That facial expression &#8212; yes, I know exactly which book my hand is on. Don&#8217;t you?
