YA author extraordinaire Elana Johnson's debut novel Possession comes six days after mine. I guess that makes us release sisters! Squee!
She had an awesome blog post last week called Tell A Big Fat Lie Tuesday where she talked about how negative reviews are No. Big. Deal. They just roll off her back, right?
Okay, not so much true. But still! I was totally there with her about how we have to plug our ears and move on.
Elana and I have both been working on blog tours and interviews. My plan for the release of Between is to have all the reviews and posts hit at once, starting June 1. Elana's reviews have been coming in pre-release to build buzz that way. Either way, we're both biting our fingernails, waiting for the big day and knowing there will be some negative mixed in with the (hopefully overwhelming flood of) positive.
