Royal Crush Tour

Did you not know I have a new book coming out on August 1, 2017? Well, I do! I wrote and even ILLUSTRATED it myself!

More details (and events) to be added soon, but in the meantime, mark your calendar because I just got my tour schedule for this book, and I would LOVE to see you at some of these events!

But if you can’t make it to these events, no worries—like I said, more will be added soon! And you can always read the book, which is tons of fun (or so I am told).

What happens in the book? Well, Princess Olivia is turning thirteen and adjusting to life in Genovia. . . but her cousin Luisa isn’t making it easy, always teasing Olivia about the crush she may or may not have on her friend and classmate Prince Khalil.

To make matters worse, Olivia’s sister Mia is due to give birth any minute . . .

. . . but Olivia’s school is competing in the Royal Winter Games–and Grandmere is chaperoning! Could things GET any worse?

The answer, of course, is YES! Yes, they could.

Now if I may digress for a moment, I’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all of you who offered condolences after my mom’s longtime boyfriend passed away last month.

It was very sad and will be a big adjustment for all of us, but so far my mom’s doing super, as always!

In other news, many of you have probably learned by now that the character I chose to write about in Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View is Aunt Beru.

Aunt Beru was my first choice when I learned I was being offered a chance to participate in the book, and I was overjoyed when I found out I got her! In my opinion (and hers), Beru is the most important “less important” character in Star Wars: A New Hope. You’ll have to read her story on October 3 to find out why!

Finally, in cat news, Allie Finkle Cat is doing fine! She has adjusted well to her new home (mine) and spends her days beautifying herself, scratching her scratching post, sleeping, and…

…plotting ways to be as adorable as possible to distract me from working.

See you in August!

More later.

Much love,
