boys are better in books

Can't eat, can't sleep...

You know when you were a little kid and you'd wake up super early on Christmas morning or some other special occasion and you were utterly unable to fall back asleep because you were just SO EXCITED to get out of bed and start the day? Every day since I published SAY THE WORD feels like that. I wake up far too early, before the sun has risen, before I've even had my coffee -- which, as anyone who knows me can attest, is unheard of -- and I immediately pull my phone beneath the covers of my bed to check whatever reviews or encouraging words have been posted overnight. Every moment that I'm awake is magical, because I'm doing it.

I'm living my dream. And it's all because of you guys.

A year ago, I was a 21 year old junior in college, studying psychology and thinking about applying for internships. Now, I am doing the one thing I've always dreamed of. Without your support, none of this would ever be possible. My life would be radically different at this very moment. So THANK YOU. I can't even express how much it means to me whenever I read a new review or get an email from one of you incredible readers telling me that you enjoyed LIKE GRAVITY or SAY THE WORD. Even thinking about it as I type this blog post brings tears to my eyes.

I love you all. Seriously, my affection for you is borderline obsessive. You may have to file a restraining order or something. XOXOXO
