Little Miss Red reading in NYPL on January 6th

If you live in NYC and you have nothing better to do with your evening (I'm so good at selling myself, aren't i?), I'll be reading from LITTLE MISS RED at the Jefferson Market Branch of NYPL (425 6th Ave, at 10th St) on January 6th along with three other YA authors. Starts at 6pm. The book doesn't come out until February so it's a sneak peek.

I know you're not supposed to choose favorites amongst your children but I have to say, I think this is my favorite out of all the fairy tale retellings I've written so far.

Tweet this

So I told my publishers I would start twittering more.

But here's the thing, for some reason I have absolutely no problem coming up with Facebook status updates (by the way, please friend me on there if you already haven't)...but when it comes to Twitter I just freeze up. And any and all of my wittiness is nowhere to be found. It's weird.

That being said, I will continue to try...and an audience always you can find me at robinpalmer on twitter to follow me.

Very intrigued by this white stuff.

I'm sorry, but I was hoping full-fledged, Blizzard-of-'78 type circumstances. No such luck.

First snow of the winter! First time I've blogged in over a month!

It's like every day that goes by, I feel worse and worse about the fact that I haven't blogged, so I just...don't. And instead walk around feeling guilty.

I don't know...the blogging thing is hard for me. 'Cause I think "who really cares what I have to say?" When I write my books, and it's a character, then it's a different story - because they're not me, so I find them just as interesting as readers do. But when it's me, it's hard. Except with Facebook status updates. Those I like doing. But not Twitter. That I don't like doing.

So let's see...what can I tell you. LITTLE MISS RED comes out on February 9th which I'm super excited about. I think that Sophie, the lead character, is the closest to me out of all of the books I've written. For good for for bad ;) And I just finished the manuscript for YOURS TRULY, LUCY B. PARKER #2 which is a relief. The first one comes out in May. And on Monday I'm going on a horse-drawn carriage ride in Central Park (on a white horse - how fairy tale-like is THAT?!) to shoot a video for Penguin. That will be interesting.

Oh, and I've been making a lot of stews. When did that happen? When did I turn into the kind of woman who makes stews? That's crazy.

I hope everyone is having very happy holidays.
