PLUS ONE Blog Tour: End of the Line!

Plus One is safely launched into the world, and we've come to our last blog tour stop: I visited The Bevy Bibliotheque to answer Jen's truly insightful questions about novel structure, morally gray characters, the health consequences of living only at night, and more. What a thoughtful reader she is!

So head on over for a little intellectual conversation, and for the last giveaway of a finished copy of the book. Click away!

And thanks again to Amanda and Sarah of The Best Books Ever for organizing this blog tour, which has been fantastic, and to all the blogs that participated. You've been such welcoming hosts, I can't thank you enough.

PLUS ONE Blog Tour: 9th Stop!

Yesterday was a busy pub day! It's pretty exhilarating to see your book go forth in the world. Today I took the first nap I've needed in a couple of years. Phew!

For my 9th stop on this blog tour train I visited Lauren at Love is Not a Triangle. This post is particularly valuable when you're reading or have already read the book—it contains research photos of many of the real locations in Plus One.

So go check out some useful Plus One photos, and enter Lauren's giveaway, Click here!

PLUS ONE Blog Tour: 8th Stop!

Today I'm visiting with Karen Jensen at Teen Librarian Toolbox, talking about the politics of freedom and sexual violence in Plus One

Karen has recently founded a new initiative in the online literary world called #SVYALIT (Sexual Violence and Young Adult Literature), with the help of Carrie Mesrobian (Sex & Violence) and Christa Desir (Fault Line). In short, Karen encourages parents, teachers, librarians, and teens themselves to use young-adult literature to talk about sexual violence and consent. 

How are civil liberties, sexual violence, and healthy, consensual sex related in my book? Read about it here


PLUS ONE Blog Tour: 7th Stop!

Yesterday I visited the amazing Amanda and Sarah over at The Best Books Ever, where I show you how I picture the characters in Plus One. (Can you call it a "fan cast" when the author chooses actors to play her characters?) Check it out, and enter the giveaway!

(P.S. Amanda and Sarah organized the whole blog tour, and I'm so grateful to them.)
