On the Road Now, and Again

Hello, from beautiful Long Beach, California! As a northern girl who has scoffed at television images of Californians donning sweaters when it got 'cold,' I must concede my error. It has been cool this weekend, and while it's not frigid like Minnesota I have indeed wanted a coat most days that I'm here. Even though it's not sunbathing temps, I've still taken great joy in walking on the beach at sunset.

It's the middle of my BLOODROSE tour and I want to send a huge thank you to everyone I've seen on the trip!

I have two stops left: Tuesday in St. Louis and Friday in New Orleans. I'd love to see you!

If you weren't able to come out for this tour, I'm delighted to announce the upcoming Breathless Reads tour. I'll be on the road with Marie Lu, Beth Revis, and Jessica Spotswood.

Before I sign off I want to send a huge thank you to all of you for supporting BLOODROSE - I'm thrilled to share that you have put the Nightshade series on the NYT series #5!!!! That means I'm raising my donation to Defenders of Wildlife to $5 per picture of BLOODROSE that I've received. And you've sent me loads of pictures so that means lots of money to protect wolves! You rock!! Thank you!!!


  1. Have fun! ^_^ I'll see if I can catch up with you in NYC.

    Shooting for the Moon

  2. Yay!! I'll be seeing ya tomorrow Andrea!! SO can't wait!

  3. Have fun, Andrea! Wish you were coming closer to the Northwest Ohio area because I'd love to meet you!

    Congrats on your books reaching #5!! There's a reason for that - they're amazing! :)

  4. I'll be seeing you tomorrow in New Orleans! I'm so looking forward to finally meeting you. Congrats on the NY Times list. I have absolutely loved the Nightshade series. I may or may not have bawled like a small child at some point, but I thought the ending was perfect.

  5. Best of luck on your tour!!!! I can't wait to take Janelle on her own - and thanks for the weather tips, us California girls will remember to bundle up.

  6. You're coming only 40 minutes away on the 17th but that is the one day and time that I can't come. I'm so upset about it because I adore NS books! Good luck
