I'm sorry for the late reply; I'm hardly ever on GR. :-) I'm so so glad you liked YOU FIRST--thank you for reading it! I'm working steadily on the sequel and hope to have it out by the end of the year, but I'm a slow writer and have pandemic brain, so I can't make hard and fast promises about the release date. I'll be making announcements on Twitter and my website when the release date gets closer, so please stay tuned! Hopefully it'll be worth the wait. :-) (less)
