Best Friends With (Your Fave Authors)

Hello hello!

It's almost time for the Easter bunny to deliver me chocolate! Yay for the Easter bunny!!!

 Yay for chocolate. Seriously though after this weekend, I've got to go on a food detox. I've been a busy little Janet lately, working on a 2014 release.

But wait! Let's talk about NOW!!
As I screamed mentioned in an earlier post, HOW I LOST YOU comes out April 23, 2013!! To celebrate the launch of the book, I'm going to be featuring some posts from some of your favorite YA authors and others in the YA community, talking to them about their teen best friends.

The first post is scheduled for April 1st and I'll be talking with JENNIFER BROWN, super author (with a super best friend.)

Keep your eyes open, and if you would like to tell the world about YOUR teen best friend, please send me a note at write4me at shaw dot ca, and I'd love to feature you!!!!

Happy Easter!!

Wheee! Hello friends!!

I have been hunkered down in my home (and at the swimming pool> Life Of a Swim Mom)
finishing up my next book for Sourcebooks Fire.

Meanwhile I found out that HOW I LOST YOU is going to be releasing a little bit earlier than first announced!

HOW I LOST YOU will release APRIL 23, 2013. That's only 5 weeks away!

"My favourite Gurtler book so far! Interesting story with absorbing characters, and I honestly can't say I've ever read a story about female paintballers before." Megan Radford on Goodreads

"Favourite Janet Gurtler book as of date." May on Goodreads

There are a few things Grace Anderson knows for sure. One is that nothing will ever come between her and her best friend, Kya Kessler. They have a pact. Buds Before Studs. Sisters Before Misters. But in the summer before senior year, life throws out challenges they never expected. And suddenly the person who's always been there starts to need the favor returned. Grace and Kya are forced to question how much a best friend can forgive. And the answer is not what they expected.

Pre-order HOW I LOST YOU from your favorite book store!!!
