BOT WARS is officially out!

Friday, March 22, 2013
Bot Wars officially released yesterday. I was still on the couch sick. :( This is the longest I've been sick in years! But I'm trying to take it easy, to recuperate for next week. I turn 30 on Saturday, and my husband is taking me to the Detroit area for some Ikea shopping! I need curtains, ya'll.


I am still having a hard time processing the fact that I have two books available in bookstores. It's crazy to think that in 2010, I was unagented, unpublished, but trying so hard after so many years to finally get my foot in the door. I still remember, acutely remember, how hard it was to keep writing and keep submitting year after year, project after project, with no clue as to whether or not it'd pay off. There were a lot of days where I asked myself what was the point. When I told myself I wasn't good enough. Would never be good enough to get an agent or sell a book. 

But now, in 2013, I have two books out! 

Writers out there, still submitting, still trying to get an agent or a book deal, keep submitting, and keep writing! Because even if you feel like you're not good enough now, eventually you will be. Writing is like dance, or baseball, or art, or science. The more you study and practice, the better you will be. And you're probably better than you think you are. Writers are hard on themselves. I still think I suck half the time. Three-quarters of the time. A lot of the time. :-) 

Do any of you out there reading have questions about publishing? Or writing? Or submitting? If so, email me (jennifervrush [at] gmail), or leave a comment on this post and I'll put together a Q & A post in the next week or so.

I have been dying to show you guys the cover of ERASED, the sequel to ALTERED. Because it's bright and beautiful, but still dark and edgy at the same time. And there is a shirtless boy on the cover. :-) Specifically Nick this time. ERASED is definitely a Nick-heavy book. We find out a bit more about his past, and how Anna factors into it. I am sealing my lips now! But let me finish by saying that I am so very excited for you all to read this book.

***SIDE NOTE: This is the ARC cover, so the design is not final yet, though I imagine at this point, any tweaks will be small. Since, HELLO THAT COVER IS GORGEOUS. 

To celebrate, and to help spread the word! I'm doing a giveaway. The winner will receive a signed hardcover copy of ALTERED, an ALTERED poster, and any (or all) of the ALTERED buttons.

Now, you must tell me what you think of the cover!
