I have ordered my copy. (Do you know if there is a reason why neither Barnes and Noble nor Borders seem not to be stocking it in stores, or perhaps they're just slow in shelving their new arrivals?)

bn SHOULD be stocking in stores.
but alas, not all bn. =( but they
def chose to carry my book.

borders "skipped" me completely.
meaning they chose not to carry it in store.
it has been a trend for many debut authors. =(
we are too much of a risk.

thank you for your support!

Ooh, I love, love, love lotuses!

I'd be really hard pressed to choose between prizes. :)

Oh, I meant to say I just ordered your book today, based on the strength of sartorias's recommendation, and I wanted to offer to interview you on my journal. I am very much a fan of multicultural YA fantasy (am working on one involving Indian mythology) and want to help get it into the public eye.

If you're interested, just let me know how to contact you. :)

was so kind to read and give a review on HER
book's release day! i'd love to do an interview.
i'm a bit behind on them (a few) so it may be a few
weeks' turn around time if that's okay?

you can email questions to :

and elegant subject to paint. and hurrah for multi-cultural
YA fantasy!
