MY Bits of Shiny News

Bit One:

Earlier this week, I teased that I had shiny news.

I do.

Click here to read the details, but …

The HOURGLASS books have been optioned for feature film by TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX.


I’m excited for several reasons:

1.) A movie? About the people who live in my head? EEEE!!!

2.) Fox is amazing. They made the Wimpy Kid movies. And the Percy Jackson movies. And (some of) the Narnia movies. And the STAR WARS movies. Which means …

3.) My boys finally think I’m cool.

THANK YOU to my Amazing Agent, Holly Root, of Waxman Literary, and my film co-agent, Brandy Rivers, of Magnet Management. You ladies are fine and fantastic.

AND? All three of us are Southern. Shazam.

Later this week I’ll break down the way everything happened (nutty), the people I have to thank for it (snuggly), and the realities of an Hourglass movie actually being made (chancy).

But right now, I’m pushing reality aside for CUPCAKES, UNICORNS AND DOUBLE RAINBOWS!

Bit Two:

Also, the cover for the ADVANCED READER COPY of TIMEPIECE was leaked by someone online.


I am SO in love with it – but be aware that it’s the ARC cover only, and is not final. Lissy Laricchia is the photographer (also for HOURGLASS) – and is she mad talented or what?

I’ve adored seeing all the cover love posts, and to know y’all are excited about TIMEPIECE! I can’t wait to tell you more about it.

(Side Note: The cover wasn’t supposed to be revealed until March 2012. Thank you to all who called, DM’d, texted, gchatted, and emailed to let me know it was out in the world prematurely. I appreciate you!)
