This is Avonlea (from The Eager Readers), myself and Suzanne at a booksigning (not sure which one, we've gone to a lot!). I thought I had a better picture but I'm not finding it :(When you think of your favorite things what are the first 10 things that come to mind?

The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
Who is your favorite character in one of your books?
Hm… How can I pick among my creations?? I think it might be Tessa from The Naughty List? She was just so darn fun to write!
And because I'm sure everyone is wondering (who doesn't already know) what can we see from you in the future?
I have the sequel A Want so Wicked coming out next summer. Yay! And then Spring 2013 I have a new series with Simon Pulse called The Program which is about a teen suicide epidemic and the cure that erases memories.
Thanks so much for being on! I can't wait for the world to get their hands on your newest book!
Description of A Need So Beautiful:
We all want to be remembered. Charlotte's destiny is to be Forgotten...
Charlotte’s best friend thinks Charlotte might be psychic. Her boyfriend thinks she’s cheating on him. But Charlotte knows what’s really wrong: She is one of the Forgotten, a kind of angel on earth, who feels the Need—a powerful, uncontrollable draw to help someone, usually a stranger.
But Charlotte never wanted this responsibility. What she wants is to help her best friend, whose life is spiraling out of control. She wants to lie in her boyfriend's arms forever. But as the Need grows stronger, it begins to take a dangerous toll on Charlotte. And who she was, is, and will become--her mark on this earth, her very existence--is in jeopardy of disappearing completely.
Charlotte will be forced to choose: Should she embrace her fate as a Forgotten, a fate that promises to rip her from the lives of those she loves forever? Or is she willing to fight against her destiny--no matter how dark the consequences.
I'm giving away one ARC of A Need So Beautiful and it's *signed* and I'll even get it personalized for you!
