New Year, New Book!

I’m excited about 2013, people. I’ve got a lot to look forward to this year, not the least of which is the publication of the middle grade prequel to SLOPPY FIRSTS.

JESSICA DARLING’S IT LIST: THE (TOTALLY NOT) GUARANTEED GUIDE TO POPULARITY, PRETTINESS AND PERFECTION goes on sale in September 2013.

I’ll tell you more about it when my publisher lets me. For now, all I can say is that I had more fun writing this book than any book I’ve ever written. (And I’m already having a blast working on book #2!) This new series is targeted to 9-to-12 year-olds, but I know in my heart that fans of the original books will LOVE getting to know junior high Jessica and Marcus and Hope and the Clueless Crew before they were even called the Clueless Crew.

(I’d show you the adorable cover that was wholeheartedly and unanimously approved by a mini focus group of some of my favorite 8-to-13 year olds but I’m not allowed to. Yet.)

As always, thanks for reading.

Megan
