Happy almost-New Year, everyone!
What're you guys up to tonight? Any fun plans? Wishing you all great things in 2010. :) To the reader girlies who have been chatting on my blog, I *love* it and feel, like, popular that you keep coming back to chat and say hi. :)

Someone pretended to be me in the LWL discussion thread and I addressed the matter. Let's keep everything cool, 'cuz I don't want to have to moderate comments. Thanks, guys! :)

I'm going to vlog soon (after the New Year) would love for YOU guys to suggest some possible topics or leave questions. If I pick yours, I'll say your name in the video and will give you a special shout out. So, leave as many ideas as you like here and look for the vlog in January.
You've got until January 4 (one week!) to leave ideas.

I think it's time for a post-holiday give away!
Guess what I've got?? Copies of RIVAL REVENGE due out January 26! (Three days before my birthday, which is kinda awesome.)
Sooo...I think it's only fair that I give away THREE signed copies of RR. Leave a comment here or on LiveJournal. Tweet, Facebook, blog, vlog, whatever about the contest and let me know in the comments. It'll give you *two* extra entries. The drawing will be random and I'll only ship to US addresses. You cannot enter on Facebook, Twitter or anywhere else. Gotta comment here. :) The contest closes on January 1st at midnight at Eastern time.
Enter away and good luck!!
PS: Notice the number on the book spine? All future books will be numbered and reprints of previous books will also have numbers. Cool, huh? I love it! :D
PPS: Just so it's clear: Alison's on the spine and on the right front cover next to Julia. Jasmine's on the back. :)
NOTE: Hey, guys, please don't put LWL spoilers in this thread. Use the one below it that's open for discussion about the book. And note to everyone--there are a couple of spoilers in the comments, so shield your eyes if you don't want to see!

You guys asked for it and you've got it--chat away about LWL and be warned that there will be spoilers in the comments. Can't wait to read what everyone's thinking.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS! <3

Took a few pics from yesterday's snow. I think we're done with snow for a while, but I've gotta get snow boots. As I walked home yesterday, I was totally prepared to pull a Bella Swan and be like, "Ice really doesn't help the uncoordinated" when I wiped out. But I made it!
So. Much. Work. To. Do.

Nicole at Word for Teens was kind enough to interview me for her awesome blog. Check it out!
Thanks so much, Nicole!
I ran out and did all of my errands this morning since we're supposed to get 3-6 inches of snow starting Saturday night. I'm very excited about this. I'll be the wide-eyed girl standing in the street and taking it all in. (And, you know, watching for cars/buses.) I. Love. Snow. Pics will def occur.

Just a note to my reader girlies that the blog might be quiet for a little while. I'm going out of town for the holidays soon and CITY SECRETS is due early next month. Gotta get that draft done! :) I'm also super excited that LITTLE WHITE LIES comes out in 6 days. Can't wait to hear what you guys think!
I won't be responding to emails over the holidays (if I did, I wouldn't be able to finish my draft), BUT I will be blogging as I can. I hope you all are getting excited about the holidays!
What's on your wish list for this year? Spill!
Now, signing off for pizza and my fave show--How I Met Your Mother. :)

Since we've been talking a lot about Paige Parker this week, I wanted to share another exclusive photo from the shoot for the covers of books 9-12. I'm (on the right) posing with the awesome model who played Paige. We chatted a lot on set and had so much fun.
Starting in January, I'll begin posting video clips and more photos from the shoot. I'll be starting with pics of wardrobe and make up, plus tips via vlogs from top stylists on how to dress like a Canterwood model with an affordable mix of pieces. :)
A random drawing has selected the winner of LWL! Congrats to...KACY L! Kacy, e-mail me to claim your signed copy of Little White Lies. Thanks so much to everyone who entered. :)
TGIF! What's everyone doing this weekend? I've got a few errands and am working on CITY SECRETS.

I got the okay from Editor Kate to share a pic of Paige, so here she is. Finally! :) The model who plays Paige is sweet, funny and I love this pic of her. Paige will make her debut on the cover of CITY SECRETS (CC #9).
Hope you're all as excited to see Paige as I am to share the photo!

Look at what I have!! LITTLE WHITE LIES! So...it doesn't come out until December 22, which seems REALLY far away. I was thinking some of you *might* be interested in entering to win a signed copy.
Leave a comment here and/or on my LiveJournal entry. For an extra entry, Tweet, Facebook, blog, etc., about the contest and let me know about it in your post. I'm crazy busy this weekend and next week, so the contest will stay open until Thursday, December 10 at midnight. I'll draw a winner and check back on Friday to see if you've won! I'll only ship to a US address.
Yaaay for LWL! Go Team Canterwood!
