I am sooooooo happy to finally share the gorrrrrgeous cover to my next book, NOT IF I SAVE YOU FIRST!
(Isn’t it dreamy?)
The book will be out March 28th in the US and Canada, and I am SO excited for everyone to read it!
I know you’re not supposed to have favorites and all, but this might be mine. I just adore Logan and Maddie…but don’t take my word for it! You can actually go READ THE FIRST CHAPTER right now!
In the coming weeks and months we’ll probably be doing some giveaway...

You’re all probably back in school by now. I hope it’s going okay. I always love the start of the school year–even though I haven’t been in school in years. There’s just something fresh about it. Maybe even more than New Year’s, I think of it as a time for new beginnings.
So maybe it’s appropriate that I’m beginning ANOTHER Super Secret Project!
This one is already sold, so you WILL hear about it eventually. And, when you do, I kind of think you’re going to flip out. I mean, I’...

I’m soooooo excited, because I can finally share the details of the Super Secret Project that I’ve been working on for ages!
NOT IF I SAVE YOU FIRST is the tale of Logan and Maddie, who used to be best friends–back when she was the daughter of a Secret Service Agent, and he was the son of the president. But then Maddie’s dad moves her to middle-of-nowhere Alaska and Logan stops replying to her letters.
For six years.
Then, all of a sudden, Logan’s back in Maddie’s life and, ne...

I hope you’re all having a great summer! Mine is hot and busy, but I’m having so much fun answering everybody’s “Dear Ally” writing questions! They’re so good, and ya’ll are so smart!
In fact, I hope to be wrapping up the first draft of that really soon, because I’m getting ready to hit the road.
First, I’M GOING TO FLORIDA!
If you’re in the Orlando area, then I highly recommend you check out the Romance Writers of America “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing. It will be S...

How is summer treating you? Since Memorial Day has come and gone I’m assuming that most everyone (in the States at least) is finally on summer vacation!
So what are you up to? (leave them in the comments)
I’m up to no good (as my father would say). I’ve been working on a couple of exciting new things and, of course, the very fun DEAR ALLY, HOW DO YOU WRITE A BOOK project that we announced a few weeks ago.
So far, we have over 600 questions submitted from teens all over the world...

I hope you’re all doing really well this spring. Maybe with your finals? Or maybe finals are over and you’re already on summer vacation? If so, be safe out there! Read a ton and have fun!
What am I doing this summer? Well, a couple of things!
First and foremost, I’ll be working on DEAR ALLY, HOW DO YOU WRITE A BOOK? It’s been a lot of fun going through all the questions ya’ll have about writing.
If you haven’t asked your question yet, it’s not too late! Just go right here and ask...

Well, if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram or get my newsletter you might have already heard the big news…
I have a new book coming out next year! (well, actually TWO, but I can’t talk about the other one just yet.)
But I can talk about this one, and I’m pretty darn excited because this will be my first nonfiction book ever. And it’s a book I’ve been wanting to write for years!
DEAR ALLY, HOW DO YOU WRITE A BOOK?
It’s going to be exactly what it sounds like–me, answering w...

Those of you who follow me regularly will know that for the past few months I’ve been working on a variety of “Super Secret Projects”.
Well, I’m soooooooo excited because it looks like we’re going to be able to share the details about one of those projects here in the next few days.
So stay tuned! Big news (no, not a movie) is coming!

I’m home from a super fun UK tour and a great North Texas Teen Book Festival! Always so fun to do both of those things.
But now I must finish and title the new book.
And, let me tell you, I’d rather write the whole book over again from scratch than try to title this sucker.
It’s a funny, action-packed book with a lot of romance and really high stakes, and you try fitting all that on a book cover!
So I’m asking for some help. If you have 30 seconds or so, can you head over to this...

I’m so excited to share the FINAL information for the UK and Ireland tour! I really hope some of you will be able to join me next week at one of the following events:
To my knowledge, all events are free and open to the public and none of them require tickets–but I may be wrong! It’s always a good idea to check the host store’s website just to be certain!
Come. Tell your friends. Bring your books. And get ready for a great time!!!
