NAKED! Book Tour starts next week!

I'm sooooooo excited about going on my very first book tour. Thanks so much to Simon & Schuster Children's for making this happen and to my S&S U.S. publicist, Katy Hershberger, for all her help.

Depending on wifi, I'll be tweeting from @inkyelbows during the tour.

For details as well as interviews with Porter Square and Northshire, see my NAKED! Book Tour page.
