SO YOU THINK YOU CAN ACT…

 

I had an interesting request in my Facebook inbox yesterday, one nobody in their right mind would pass up. Julia from Brazil asked if I would be a part of her large-scale scavenger hunt. How large scale? She explains it like this:

“This year I’ve joined G.S.H.W.H.E.S., which stands for The Greatest Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen. And the reason I’m here writing you this is because my team really needs your help. One of the tasks is to get a NYT best-selling author to read the “California Driver Handbook – Laws and Rules of the Road” dramatically in a video. It doesn’t have to be the entire text, just a section. We would be eternally

Forever Pretenders

My Facebook inbox is heavy with your confessions. Some of these secrets are so good, I’d love to give the pretender credit for their confessional courage, but everything here stays anonymous. Of all the confessions I’ve received from readers since Pretenders first released, these are my top 10 favorites. Pretending is now officially ubiquitous and nobody is immune. How do you pretend?

Spill it!

License to Spill

It’s been less than a month since Pub Day and I ah-dore all the positive feedback on the second installment of the Pretenders series. If it’s more you want check out this page. It has a preview of License to Spill plus journal entries called “spilled secrets” for Lily, Vanessa, Jagger, Sheridan, and Duffy.

I’m starting book 3 and want to know what you think so far. Who’s X Phonie? Did you catch my clues? Who has the strongest motive for spilling these secrets? Come on… spill it!

Q&A Continued

I’ve loved reading all the questions you’ve submitted to me through the Blah-g and Facebook. I’m working my way through them and going to keep video responding over the next couple of weeks to make sure I get to all of you. Looks like my days of writing with bed head are over. You sure know how to force a girl to clean up.

Shame on you person who invented video. SHAME ON YOU!

Today’s response is for Adia.

Raging Glitch Part 2

I said nothing would stop me from answering your questions and I meant it. Does it matter that my video responses are coming two days later than I said? Maybe it does. But I put my heart into these answers and then raced off to the Santa Monica Public Library for NOVL’s Summer Soiree where I got to meet some of you in person. Here’s Jack from Tuesday. How cute is he?

This reader walked up and I knew right away Massie was her favorite. I can tell everyone’s favorite Clique or Pretenders character in an instant.

Raging Glitch

Q&A
Did you miss the NOVL Summer Soiree Spreecast last week? Yep, me too. Tech support tried for over an hour to get me on so I could answer your questions and dish on License to Spill (June 24) but I was a Spreecast outcast and we never got to hang.
Well, if you honestly think a glitch is going to stop me from answering your questions, there’s an even bigger glitch that needs dealing with and it’s your faith in me. No way I’m going to pass up an opportunity to answer your questions. NO! WAY! Ask me anything about anything on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or in a comment here on the Blah-g. I’ll personally …

Leaking the Spill

The countdown to Pretenders 2 is AWN!! License To Spill drops June 24th and all of your questions will be answered. I know many of you were outraged by the cliffhanger at the end of book one. I get it. You were left there to dangle and the drop was steep. If the drop were an actress it would be named Meryl Steep. If it had a few girlfriends stay over night it would be a steepover. If it was the title of an Adele song it would be Rolling in The Steep.

Naturally you sent your angry reviews to me because you don’t know who X-Phonie is. But I made sure X responded to them. So the second book …

Me: Exposed

You know how models make a big deal about posing in magazines without makeup or Photoshop? As much as we like to bust on them for it, I get it. Fooling us into thinking they are more genetically evolved than us is how they make their money. And goading you into thinking I am an (HYPERBOLE ALERT) off-the charts intellect who poops several flawless novels a year is how I make mine. But I have a behind-the-scenes team, too. They just care more about making my words look pretty than my… everything else.

Here’s how:

Once upon a time I became a huge outliner. I still spend months and dozens of pages drafting my outline so the story and structure …
