State of Anticipation – July 2016

Tags: , , , |

I’m putting this stuff down fast, before it slips away… What I’m writing: I’m putting the finishing touches on my story for the newly announced #LoveOzYA anthology, which will be released by HarperCollins in May 2017 – it’s nice to finally be allowed to talk about it!  The story is actually finished, but I’m adding [...]
