It's on the shelves (and I'm talking about it)!

THE GREAT GREENE HEIST is now available! You can pick up signed / personalized copies at BookPeople and The Book Spot. The book is also available from your local independent bookstore, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Books-A-Million, and anywhere else books are sold.

If you're interested in hearing me talk more about the book, check out the following interviews and blog posts:

- At Kirkus Reviews, I talk about the importance of diversity and dropping the reader right into the story.

- At Nerdy Book Club, I talk about my own "code of conduct" in writing the novel.

- At Project Middle Grade Mayhem, I talk about the inspiration behind the book and how my time at VCFA shaped the story.

- And, on Sunday, June 1st at 1:00 CST, I'll be talking with Hopeton Hay on KAZI 88.7. If you're interested in checking it out, you can stream the station live.

Love that button!

As a reminder, I will donate $1.50 for every copy of THE GREAT GREENE HEIST sold before and during the first week of release to Girlstart, a nonprofit that encourages girls' interest and engagement in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Specifically, I'll be supporting their Summer Camp Scholarship fund called Send a Girl To Camp, which helps to sponsor girls for week-long camps focused on STEM programs.

Save for a few events such as my joint launch with Jennifer Ziegler and Greg Leitich Smith (details coming soon), the #SharpSchuBookClub, and LeakyCon (!!!), I'm taking the summer off, but I'll be back on the road in the fall.

Thanks so much for the support!
