Hey, guess what’s happening tomorrow? Yep, Tuesday, for sure. All day. Probably going to rain also. We’re getting used to that in NYC. There’s also a good chance that I’ll get a song stuck in my head, like the theme from “Flash Gordon” (Ah-ahhhhh!) or ABBA’s “Dancing Queen.”
All those things will most likely go down tomorrow. But you know what I can guarantee you will happen tomorrow? BEAUTY QUEENS will finally be on your bookstore and library shelves. Huzzah! That’s right, Tuesday, May 24th, is the official pub date. If you see it in the wild anywhere, be sure to let me know. Extra BQ sequins if you post a picture.
But wait—there’s more! I’ll also be appearing with Meg Cabot & Maggie Stiefvater tomorrow and Thursday nights as part of Scholastic’s “This Is Teen” initiative. We will answer your questions and sign your books and maybe even sign other people’s books. Meg promises to roller boogie and Maggie will play the banjo.* Deets below. You can find more tour information for the “This Is Teen” tour at http://www.libbabray.com on the events page.

So much to do; so little time—and I should probably get a shower since I’ll be in public tomorrow. Hope to see you tomorrow or Thursday.
