I wouldn't mind exploring Luce's story...or even Mia or Maile -- or to totally try something new, writing from Penn's POV (a male MC is something I've never done before, so who knows?).
And as for Mick and Slo...well, I'm not sure it's entirely up to Mick -- Sloane has some things to think about as well. And I often ask the question: if you were in the same situation, would ever forgive a friend that committed this type of ultimate betrayal? Would it not make you consider what friendship really means? I would think both of those things play a huge factor in how things might turn out...but of course, every situation is different, so you never know?
Thanks so much for all the wonderful questions!!!!(less)

Cover Reveal: SUMMER OF SLOANE

Last week, the ever lovely Jen over on Pop! Goes The Reader, graciously hosted my cover reveal for SUMMER OF SLOANE, along with a fun interview and a giveaway too.


It was surreal to finally see my book have a cover, let alone share it with the rest of the world -- but I couldn't be more excited!


And in case you missed it, here she is!



I couldn't be happier with how well Tyler - the cover designer over at Hyperion - captured my...

is!


excited!


Andtoo.

“On three. Ready?"
Closing my eyes I take a deep breath as he squeezes my hand in time to his counting.
I open my eyes on the third
and final squeeze.
And then we jump”
Erin L. Schneider, Summer of Sloane

“We walk along the beach access path until it opens up onto pristine golden sand and nothing but thousands of miles of turquoise unfolds in front of us. It's hard to tell where the blue
of the ocean stops and the same brilliant hue of the sky begins.”
Erin L. Schneider, Summer of Sloane

“He's near enough I can hear him breathe, and for reasons I can't explain, my insides vibrate with how close he stands, like we're magnetically bound to each other.”
Erin L. Schneider, Summer of Sloane

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
