You look lovely today. Your hair is thick and lustrous, and your pants are flattering. Great work!
I’m here to talk to you about something that has been troubling me. Lots. And I think to a huge huge HUGE extent I am preaching to the choir, but I hope I can reach some other people.
Because I am upset.
And I am not upset on my own behalf.
I am upset on the behalf of…agents.
Yes, agents! Those supposedly sleazy slimy sharks out to make a buck. Those weasels with dollar signs in their so...

I’m thrilled that Ink Is Thicker than Water is finally available online and in stores! Please strongly consider purchasing a copy. Why not? It’s the price of two lattes! The ebook is the cost of, like, a really expensive LAMILL-style coffee.
Here are some of the places I’ve been online:
YA Bookmark had me on their blog where I featured style sets of many of my characters’ fashion. Here’s a little sneak peek at Kellie’s style:
The lovely Susan Adrian interviewed me on her blog!

I am super psyched to announce that Ink Is Thicker than Water got a blurb from a hilarious and talented author:

–Elizabeth Eulberg, author of Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality

Guys, I just read Megan Abbott’s Dare Me.
It is pretty great. It’s not technically YA but it’s about high school. One of the back cover blurbs compared it to Heathers and Fight Club which I’d agree with, but it also scrapes at its own specific and complicated issues and emotions.
Anyway, I am fortunate enough to have THREE EXTRA COPIES of Dare Me to give away! Just comment here with something you were once dared to do. It doesn’t have to be something you went through with!…or it does. Whichever...

I’m thrilled to announce that Ink Is Thicker than Water has received its first blurb, from an author I admire the pants off of:
“Amy Spalding has a knack for capturing the messiness of family in a way that feels as familiar and comforting as a pair of perfectly worn jeans or favorite pair of flip flops. With Ink Is Thicker than Water, Spalding depicts a blended family with compassion, humor, love, and pitch-perfect authenticity.”
–Trish Doller, author of Where the Stars Still Shine and Somethin...
