Read or Write Anywhere

read or write black

Summer is about to begin!

But just because it’s summer doesn’t mean we should stop reading and writing. I’ve teamed up with the YA Chicks and many participating authors on a global campaign to encourage readers, writers, students, and teachers to share pictures all of the places—both ordinary and extraordinary—where they are reading and writing. This is open to all readers/writers of both middle grade and young adult books!

You can also take part in…


I’ll be giving away a copy of AFTER THE END, and all of the other authors participating in this campaign will be giving away books, critiques, swag and/or Skype visits.

So are you ready?

Drum roll….


Can you guess where I am?



The very first clue I hold in my hand;

Its title should help you understand.

bookA certain ghost tale by Gaston Leroux

will unmask for you the second clue.


The third clue‘s solved by those who delve

into UNTIL I DIE, Chapter 12.


Number four can be construed

from the revelers in the nude.


And number five I’ll freely give:

This is in the city where I live.


Once you’ve figured out where I’m reading, head over to the YA Chicks site and:

  • Officially enter the giveaway by inputting each author’s name and your guesses about our locations. Every author location you guess correctly increases your chances to win. The contest runs until 11:00pm, Sunday, May 31st
  • For even more chances, post a picture of yourself reading or writing on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ReadOrWriteAnywhere (must have the hashtag).


For writer prize packs:

  • Post pictures of yourself writing in a fun location on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ReadOrWriteAnywhere. Then follow the directions on the Rafflecopter giveaway to let us know you did it.
  • For even more chances, gather your writer friends together and post a group shot with the hashtag #ReadOrWriteAnywhere (must have the hashtag). And hey, since you’re already together, why not host a write-a-thon?


For teacher prize packs:

  • Post pictures of your class reading or writing on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ReadOrWriteAnywhere (must have the hashtag).
  • Then let us know you did it when you enter the Rafflecopter. If you don’t have a Twitter or Instagram, you can email your picture directly with the picture pasted directly into the email (no attachments–we won’t open them) AND the subject, “Read or Write Anywhere.”
  • You can also check out the YA Chicks Read or Write Anywhere lesson plan, available on their site.

Now, what are you waiting for? Get out there and READ OR WRITE ANYWHERE!



And as an extra treat, I will give a copy of UNTIL THE BEGINNING to one person chosen randomly from the comments below. Good luck to all!!!

    I love the cover to Until the Beginning. It looks like a photo you’d find in a travel magazine of a landmark.

    This guessing game sounds real fun. With all gone to BEA, I’d be good to do. Thanks!
