Fun news! SUMMER OF SUPERNOVAS has made it to the semi-finals of the Book Shimmy Awards, hosted by Epic Reads! It’s been nominated in the Hot Under the Cover category, and it’s got some mighty fine company indeed. 🙂

How excited was I when I found out? Well, it looked something like this…









(BTW, rainbow doesn’t come out of carpet. Not even with Resolve.)

So my deepest, heartfeltiest thanks to the reading community who nominated my book! It is more appreciated than my full-color-spectrum vomit can convey.  Also, if you’d like to help SOS advance to the finals, check out the link below! Voting ends Thursday, Dec 22nd

Happy holidays to you and yours!

But in the meantime, these advanced copies + creative Bookstagrammer genius, have left my heart ALL aflutter!!! ♥~♥~♥

What a thrill to have the very first foreign release of Summer of Supernovas a mere FOUR days away!

It’s been such a delight to see how different countries are capturing Wil’s story with their own unique images and words. And the Italian edition is no exception. Today, I’m outta-my-gourd excited to share Mondadori’s adorable cover and title! So without further ado, let’s get our ogle on!!!

Title: Girano Le Stelle (translation–Turning Stars)
Tagline: L’amore nonostante l’oroscopo (translation–Love in spite of horoscope)

Annnnd, drum roll please…




Italian Cover

I hope you adore this cover with sweet Wil and her stars as much as I do!

Dear friends and family,

Thank you to the moon and stars for coming out to celebrate the launch of SUMMER OF SUPERNOVAS on May 24th at Schuler Books! The evening was pure magic–made more magical because of your presence! Your unwavering support has helped me achieve my dream of becoming a published author, and for that, I will forever be grateful.

My feet have yet to touch ground…


The cupcake-themed cookies were generously donated by one of my clients (Kathy O). They were DELISH!


And of course the CUPCAKE cupcakes by Randy at Whipped Bakery!


My hostess with the mostest Whitney! I wish I could remember what was so funny because clearly I’m amused.


Me dying of nervousness and all of you graciously pretending not to notice. 🙂


My sweet girl Jenny Sullivan on guitar. She killed it!


My darling niece Morgan + moi! She’s the cuuuuutest!


Extra special thanks to all the family who traveled many miles to join! You truly made my night!


A few of my very supportive clients. I am the luckiest!


My beautiful mom Kathy manning the beverages… Thanks MOM! Love you!
