Sunday marks exactly one month until my next YA, THE SUMMER AFTER YOU AND ME, hits shelves.

It will also be 50 days until Memorial Day weekend—the unofficial start of summer

Know what that means? It’s about time to begin the countdown to summer (reaches for sunscreen) and give away some stuff, like…

An ARC or finished copy (winner’s choice) of THE SUMMER AFTER YOU AND ME (Sourcebooks Fire), which debuts on May 5, 2015!


It’s available right now for preorder at all the usual places. Note the button to the right! But you can register here to win a signed, finished copy. (No purchase necessary!) Plus, my amazing author friends Jennifer Ann Mann and Bethany Crandell are joining me in giving away signed copies of their summer-themed books. Both of these hilarious, heartwarming reads are set at summer camps—perfect!—and feature some of my all-time favorite characters.


SUNNY SWEET CAN SO GET LOST is the latest installment in Jen Mann’s middle grade Sunny Sweet series. For more about Jen and her books click here.


Bethany’s Crandell’s SUMMER ON THE SHORT BUS debuted last year. For more about Bethany, click here.

But wait, there’s more!!! We’re also giving away a really cool book-ish bracelet, handcrafted by TheBookSwagShop on Etsy, and featuring mini-versions of our books as summery charms.


We’re not done yet, the winner will receive a $25 gift card to the bookseller of her choice to buy more summery reads.

The Countdown to Summer Giveaway ends when summer “unofficially” begins! Right in time to pack up this prize pack and head for the beach! Enter here!
