WALLFLOWER made the short list for the Bram Stoker award!

Welp, it’s finally happened. One of my books is almost maybe being considered for an incredibly prestigious award. Possibly.

Seriously, I cannot begin to tell you how swimmy my head gets when I see my book listed alongside powerhouses in the horror genre (especially my agency sister Courtney Alameda!).


This is enough. Truly. But if I could go to the awards in a blood-red tux and sit among the masters who make the world’s skin crawl, well . . . that’d be something else.

Sigh. Now, we wait.

For those of you voting on which books will officially be nominated, I am more than happy to send you a PDF (that will implode after February 23rd). Or, if you’re stuck in the past like our hero Phoebe Lane, my publisher will send you a physical copy. (I would take them up on that. They’re bee-yootiful.)

Just please, Daniel Framsky, don’t turn the television off before the nominees are announced.


SAY YES TO THE GIANTESS (Attack of the 50 Foot Wallflower sneak peek)

Thoughts I had while watching this video:

  1. I look tired.
  2. That's cool. I'll bet, like, only 17 people watch this anyway.
  3. Did I pronounce Sam Bosma correctly? OH NO! I DIDN'T PRONOUNCE FRANCESCO'S NAME CORRECTLY, THAT'S FOR SURE. Ugh. Now he gets one huge favor from me, to be collected whenever he sees fit.
  4. I hope my inability to come up with actual adjectives for the lovely people who worked on this book doesn't reflect on my writing ability . . . or their loveliness.

Jeff Zentner's book is called Rayne and Delilah's Midnight Matinee (I was so close!), and you can preorder it here. It also has a purple cover and involves scary movies. Yesssssss.

Thanks again to John Cusick, Christian Trimmer, Liz Kossner, Krista Vossen, Sam Bosma, and FranCESco Francavilla. You all have my heart.
