August 27th, 2010 by Terra | 3 Comments | Filed in News, Pure


Lots and lots of jumping up and down with excitement this morning! And if I’d had internet access at my house last night I would have announced it then! Yesterday the Georgia Center for the Book announced its very first ever list of “25 Books Young Georgians Should Read,” and Pure was one of them!

Other books in the YA category included:

Peaches, by Jodi Lynn Anderson

I Am Rembrandt’s Daughter, by Lynn Cullen

The Maze Runner, by James Dashner

Blood Brothers, by S.A. Harazin

First Shot, by Walter Sorrells

You can see the complete list on Georgia Center for the Book’s website ( There will be a party in Decatur on Saturday the 28th (that’s tomorrow) from 10-12 to celebrate!

I am so thrilled, honored, and actually kind of flabbergasted to be included in this amazing list. Thanks to all of the judges, and thanks to the Georgia Center for the Book!

Goin’ to Carolina (Not Even in my Mind!)

It’s been a busy summer of working on Book #3, due out Summer of 2011, plus getting everything ready for Decatur Book Festival 2010 (for which I am the Assistant Program Director), so I’ve pretty much been chained to my laptop and my desk and not much else all summer long, but I am really looking forward to getting to take a BREAK soon, to go visit my friends in Raleigh, NC!

That’s right! I’m going to be doing a reading and signing at Quail Ridge Books & Music on Saturday, September 11th at 3 PM. I have all kinds of amazing things about this bookstore, and am really looking forward to checking it out!

So all you NC peeps, come out and see me! In the meantime, it’s back to the keyboard . . .
