Level 2 Launch Day!

Can you believe it? Level 2 day has finally arrived!

Kelly from STACKED books blog flew in town especially to celebrate with me.  First, she gave me this amazing Level 2 necklace.



Then, she convinced me that the Barnes & Noble would have copies on the shelf, so we went in, and ta-da:

I asked if they wanted me to sign their stock -- and they did! So I did:



Then we stopped by Watermark where the launch party will be tomorrow night and they had a display in the window. So that was awesome.



Lots of great stuff around the web today.

First up - I finally reveal the complete LEVEL 2 playlist on Mundie Moms as part of the LEVEL 2 blog tour.

I talk about my path to publication on Cynsations.

One Four Kid Lit interviews me about writing LEVEL 2.

Emily's Crammed Bookshelf interviews me and gives away a LEVEL 2 tote bag.

Jenny of Forever Young Adult reviews LEVEL 2 on the Kirkus blog and says: "I can't wait to get back in my pod and relive my memories with this book!"

Booktrust UK picks LEVEL 2 to feature in January

LEVEL 2 is 365 Days of Reading's Pick of the Week

The Guilded Earlobe reviews the LEVEL 2 audiobook, and more reviews from Princess Bookie and Bookblabblers.

Thank you so much to everyone who has tweeted, e-mailed and facebooked book birthday wishes - I am having a fabulous day - about to get even more awesome with the arrival of Forever Young Adult's Jenny and her husband George.

More tomorrow!
