Very kind reviews of Going Too Far are up at Flamingnet, Teens Read Too, Young Adult Romance Writers, Teen Book Review, The Book Obsession, and Sarah's Random Musings. The recent explosion of book review sites makes me so happy. It's neat to see that other people have a crush as big as mine on YA books. And I feel very honored that my book is part of the discussion.

I am out of advance copies of Going Too Far, but my editor tells me my author copies of the "real" book should arrive late next week. That's still a month before the book goes on sale on March 17. I will send my copies to reviewers until I run out. If you write a book blog and you'd like a copy for review, just e-mail me at echolsjenn at yahoo dot com with your snail-mail address and the web address of your blog.

In other news, my critique partner Vicki got the cover for her August book:



Vicki's covers always feature her heroes and heroines Nekked or Headed In That Direction, and this one is no exception. But this cover really conveys that the hero and heroine are childhood friends, and they're in love from the beginning. The heroine looks like she's saying, "Yes, I DO want you to undress me, but let's just stop a moment and let me hug you because I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!" Awwww.

Just a quick note to say that in my guest vlog for Jocelyn's Teen Book Review site, I mention how you were one of the first authors I contacted and one who helped me out in the beginning. :) So be sure to go check it out sometime!

Awwwww! I smile like a fool every time I see that cover. Thanks for sharing my joy with me.

I'm gonna see Going Too Far in stores soon! Eeee! I've been waiting a long time. I think I read it well over a year ago? Man, this book is great and YOUR cover is perfect too. Especially now that she's not a Fremen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fremen) from the planet Arrakis.

You mean her strange glowing blue eye?

Yeah. Glad that got toned down.
