The Fox Inheritance

In like a lion . . .

August is here!  And, oh my,  it's one humdinger of a month.  It's getting ready to roar . . .

First of all, happy birthday to all you Leo's out there--which includes me!  And in just a few days . . . drumroll, please . . .

The world will be adding a new Leo.  My first grandbaby!  A little lioness for sure, considering the way she's been kicking her mommy.  I am beyond excited.  Our world is filled with pink and bows and ruffles awaiting her imminent arrival.  (And I've been buying board and picture books like crazy.)

And if that's not enough news for one month (it is!) my next book will be published on August 30th!  The Fox Inheritance is almost here!  Hooray!  Many thanks to all of you who have been waiting, reading, and cheering from the sidelines, including Guys Lit Wire, Tabitha Olson, this at Roots in Myth, and this from Book Lady's Book Notes.  Thanks for such thoughtful reviews--each with a different take.

And thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, to the many who have pre-ordered it here, and here, and here.  You're the best!  I appreciate it so much.

To celebrate the publication, I will be on a blog tour the week of the 23rd-30th, each day sharing an inside tidbit about The Fox Inheritance at a different blog.  Blog tour details to be posted soon! And the week will culminate with a ~*Launch Party*~ at the wonderful and awesome Mysterious Galaxy  on Tuesday, August 30th at 7pm.  I hope if you're in the San Diego area you'll be there!  Even if you're not in San Diego, come! You need to get away, don't you?  (Not to mention my little lioness might be there for her very first book signing : )

The following month in September I'll begin touring so I can visit more readers in more cities.  And the best part is, I will be touring with these amazing authors:  Gabrielle Zevin, Jessica Brody, Alexandra Adornetto, and Alyson Noel!  Dubbed the Pen Fatale Tour (I love that : ) we'll be visiting TEN cities across the country:

Woodlands, TX
Houston, TX
Austin, TX
Naperville, ILL
Boulder, CO
Littleton, CO
Pasadena, CA
Upland, CA
Lake Forest, WA
Lynnwood, WA

I hope you live near one of these.  It should be a fun, outrageous time touring with these ladies--and hopefully our mayhem won't make the evening news.

My head is spinning already from the crazy and exciting weeks ahead.  August is roaring in . . .

in a very good way!


I love you to pieces, dear Mary, but "ten cities across the country" is more like "ten cities across the Mississippi from Anne Marie." You know. Come EAST!
Ack! Sorry about that. I will send on your EAST suggestion to the powers that be! You are so right!
