Starfish is out in the world!
STARFISH had its book birthday last Tuesday, and guess who forgot to write an official blog post about it? My notifications kept me busy most of the day, and I was so caught up in thanking everyone for celebrating the release day that I sort of forget to make an announcement myself. So, a few days late, but I am honored and grateful and so very proud to see STARFISH out in the world and finding the readers who need it most. And if you spot it out in the wild, send pictures! Seeing this book on shelves brings actual rays of sunshine into my life.
Here’s a photo of me celebrating launch day with my editor, Jennifer Ung, and agent, Penny Moore, who I finally got to meet in person. It was the most perfect day, and my heart is still very, very full.
And to all the readers out there who are so supportive and enthusiastic about this book that is so many pieces of my heart: Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. <3
