In just a few weeks, on May 14th to be exact, GOLDEN will hit the shelves and I will hit the road for the second annual SUMMER LOVIN TOUR! I could not be more excited about this tour, as I will be joining Kimberly Derting, Morgan Matson, Shannon Messenger, Sarah Ockler, and Suzanne Young for what promises to be a good time!

I hope we're coming to a bookstore near you, and I hope you'll come out to see us when we do!
