A few quick things about Maddie

I always said I was going to do a Wordle for SAVING MADDIE, and as I've been too lazy to generate an actual post, I figured now was as good of a time as any.

And while it's still a little too early to share a "full" excerpt, I can share the passage we're using on the dust jacket:

"Some things about her were still the same: freckled cheeks; round brown eyes; fully, pouty lips. But her hair, which had once reached past her shoulders, was now short and wavy. And those pouty lips were lined in purple lipstick. Not a neon purple, but more like a dark, blue-black mix. Like the color of blackberries."

I should be posting my Spring speaking schedule sometime at the beginning of the year (psst--I'll be at both ALA Midwinter and TLA, among other places). I hope everyone has a happy and safe holidays.
