It's release day for THE SUN DOWN MOTEL. I've been traveling all day and then I was at @northshirebooks, talking with @jennifermcmahonwrites and having an incredible time meeting readers. And now I can process that my book is out. I'll just say it: I love this book. I love Carly and Viv, because they're me and they're also the me I wished I was when I was 20. I love Fell, New York. I love Alma and Nick and Marnie and Heather. (I still miss Heather.) I even love that godawful motel, though I'd never stay there, even for twenty bucks. No way. I hope readers love it too. Enjoy it, get creeped out, forget the world for a few hours, and have fun. My readers are the best. And thanks to Jennifer McMahon for the photo, because I was too busy to take one myself 👻📚
