I love Showtime--The Affair and Shameless are two of my favorites--so this is so exciting. And I'll keep you posted!

Thanks so much for sharing the book with your students. I enjoyed studying psychology (especially abnormal psychology, of course) and I love to read psychological thrillers that leave a lasting imprint. Say hello to your students for me! And check out Don't You Cry by Mary Kubica when it comes out this spring. I finished it this weekend and you really come away from it thinking about background, childhood. I'm always interested in the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, and Mary is wonderful at exploring those stories in her work.

Jen La Duca OMG you accepted my friend request!!! Thank you sooooo much, I love you and your amazing Joe heehee I read You last year right after it came out & still can't stop talking about it & telling everyone to read it! I'm beyond excited for Love (You #2) - love the name btw ;) I've also been hearing rumors about Showtime OMG dying when I heard that!! I had read You last year on my Kindle and just recently decided it wasn't enough so purchased the Hardback version because I love the cover so much. It just arrived today so I'm eagerly looking forward to revisiting with Joe. Ok I'm going to stop being crazy stalker fan now, just wanted to tell you thank you for writing such an amazing, crazy, twisted story that I LOVE!!
