Hello Friday!

The Hollywood Borders is mentioned by name in 32 CANDLES, so this picture means a whole lot to me. And how cool is it that I'm right next to my friend Karen Valby (WELCOME TO UTOPIA) and right above Johanna Lindsey whose bodice rippers I worshipped when I was in high school?

1. Thanks for all the sweet comments online and off about our new THEN and NOW series. It’s been so inspiring for me to read these stories and I’m glad they’re resonating with you, too. Go HERE to read this week’s batch of awesome THEN and NOW stories, and consider submitting one of your own.

2. I would really, really, really love to see you at either Leimert Park tomorrow (June 26) or at my book signing on Monday. Details for both events can be found HERE.

3. First week sales are super-important, so if you haven’t picked up your copy of 32 CANDLES yet, please do so HERE.

4. Want a 32 CANDLES T-shirt? Read the book and review it on your blog before July 4th and we’ll send you one!

5. Already read the book? Please consider leaving a review at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or GoodReads.

100% Love,
