Proof that I have the coolest job EVER!

July 19th, 2012 | Blog Uncategorized


As if the impossible-to-wrap-my-head-aroud Shelf Awareness ad wasn't proof enough, I have to show you guys THE COOLEST THING EVER.

(No really, it is seriously, honestly, the most incredible thing!)

My first KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES fan art!!!!!

From a 13-year-old reader who wrote the sweetest message along with it (yes, I TOTALLY cried).


I… I don't even know where to start. Not only is this gorgeous (seriously, this is one talented kid–and this is so getting framed and hanging in my office) (it also makes me want a KEEPER manga like whoa–ARE YOU LISTENING, UNIVERSE???) but I know exactly which scene this is and just… to see a reader so inspired by these crazy characters who live in my head is just… well, once again I have no words


Except that I can say that clearly I have the best job ever. Which was great to be reminded of because the revision on KEEPER 2 is currently kicking my butt. So this is just the motivation I needed to keep slogging through.

And I just want to add a quick thank you to all the others who've taken the time to send me emails about loving KEEPER (of which there has been quite a lot, surprisingly enough). I haven't posted your letters because it just seems… shamelessly self promoting. But I have read and loved each and every one of them and if I haven't replied yet I promise I will. And in the meantime THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Okay… back to revising! (well… after staring at this gorgeousness just a *little* bit longer)
