I am proud to announce...

..the birth of GEEK CHARMING.

Weighing in at 338 pages, she's a big one and although I'm terribly biased, I think she's beautiful.

Baby is resting comfortably. Mother? Not so much, due to the fact that she's moving in less than two weeks and therefore knee-deep in boxes as well as 125 pages pregnant with the next kid.

It can never be said I don't have good taste...

So as I was having a long overdue catch-up dinner with my agent, Kate Lee, tonight, I learned something about her which I hadn't known due to the fact that one of the reasons I adore her not only as an agent but as a person is because she's so humble.

What I learned is that she was ranked #21 on the New York Post's list of "The 50 Most Powerful Women In New York City."

My Kate -- number 21. Ranked HIGHER than Sarah Jessica Parker, thankyouverymuch.

I'm so proud of her!

Watch The American Mall on MTV on August 11 -- So I'll Continue to Have a Job to Go To

As well as Cindy Ella is doing, I am sorry to say that I have yet to reach Stephanie Meyer-level sales figures (accent on "yet")...which means that I still have to work a day job. I'm lucky in that mine happens to be a very cool one, where I oversee the development of the movies that premiere on MTV. Not only do I get to work on fun things, but I basically get to wear whatever I want to work.

On Monday August 11 at 9PM EST/8PM CT, The American Mall will premiere. It's from the producers of High School Musical and it's very cute. Here's a link to the official website.

And People Magazine gave it 3 stars out of 4!

So watch the movie (and then buy the DVD and the soundtrack), because if you do, that means we'll continue to make more of them. And if we make more movies, that means I will continue to have a job. And if I continue to have a job, that means I can afford to pay the rent on my new apartment that I've been spending every waking moment looking for.

Think of it as being of service to your fellow humankind.

Thank you.

GEEK CHARMING available for pre-order on Amazon

It's not coming out until February which is still six months away, and the cover art isn't there which sort of makes me feel like I'm speaking too soon and ruining the whole effect, but if you click here you can pre-order my next book GEEK CHARMING which is a retelling of The Frog Prince. It's not a sequel to CINDY ELLA but it is set at Castle Heights High.

I happen to be one of those people who loves to have things to look forward to, so pre-ordering a book -- even if I know it won't arrive for another six months -- sounds like something I'd do right about now.
