Last Year's Mistake Pre-Release Giveaway Extravaganza!

YOU GUYS. My book launch is imminent!

I have no idea how this is possible, because last year when I learned what my release date would be, I honestly thought, June 9, 2015 is NEVER coming. But OMG. It totally is.

And there are so many exciting things happening! For example, this utterly ADORBZ article that ran in the June/July issue of Justine Magazine, where they chose beyond-perfect clothes and accessories to go along with the story:

Look closely at that bracelet. It's a quote from ALICE IN WONDERLAND that reads:
I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.

You know what I can't do? Even begin to explain how perfect that quote is. Once you read the book, you'll know why. 


And then Taylor Swift totally channeled my book cover:

She's trying to tell me she loves my book. Shut up. Yes she is.

Not to mention that LYM was listed as one of Epic Reads 15 Most Anticipated YA Books to Read in June, and also appeared on the Barnes & Noble Teen Blog as one of 40 Books You Need On Your Summer Reading List. 

Convinced you need this book in your life? Well, you're in luck. Because I'm SO excited to finally share this story with the rest of the world, I bring you...


To one lucky winner, I am offering:

- A signed hardcover of LAST YEAR'S MISTAKE
- One 11 x 17 LYM Poster (also signed, if you prefer)
- A signed LYM bookmark
- A signed LYM postcard
- An adorable LYM refrigerator magnet
- And as a BONUS - TWO titles of your choice by a 2015 debut author. Need a list to peruse? I can help: 2015 Debut Young Adult Authors
