UNDYING is on a list!

Those of you who've known me for a while know that odd things please me. Two awesome things happened this week: a low rating of the book coming from a country where the book isn't available (a twofer! Book pirating AND a negative rating! People are SEEKING ME OUT to dislike me. Also, someone other than family/friends read my book!)

The other is that Undying made its first list here on Goodreads. The best part? It's a dubious distinction; the list is Authors Who Used to Write Fan Fic. 

Again, those of you who know me know how much this entertains me. 

That being said, it's currently tied for 20th with the likes of Cecilia Tan and S.E. Hinton, so you know I'm going to squee even if it's an odd little list, but if you'd like to vote for FORMER FAN FIC AUTHORS, click here

I'm happy so long as my book is higher on the list than FIFTY SHADES.

LASTLY, for those of you who are interested in, or want to learn more about, fan fiction, I have an essay in an AMAZING book coming out this December. It's edited by Anne Jamison, who is super-smart but also really good at sorting the wheat from the chaff when it comes to "need to know" information, and includes famous people and NYT and USA Today bestselling authors, and yes, little old me. So check out FIC: WHY FANFICTION IS TAKING OVER THE WORLD.
