Happy Hannahween!

Well then!

Listen up, we got a big announcement. 

This Halloween, as in FIVE DAYS FROM NOW Halloween, I decided to do something I've never done before! I'm putting out a book all on my very own. It's ebook only and right now only on Amazon.  Here's the cover!

And here's the description!

You just have to be a brave and certain kind of person, and I don't think that I am. I'm sarcastic and loyal and a little shy. I'm quietly and slightly Catholic. I'm a daughter trying to learn how to be a sister. I'm a virgin. I'm a butterflier.

I've never been in love.

Taylor Cipriano had everything figured out, back when she lived with her single mother in Miami. Now, she's moved upstate for her junior year to live with her mom's boyfriend and her soon-to-be-stepsister and is trying to figure out who she is out of the shadow of her best friend. When she meets Theo—quirky, cute, sensitive Theo—he seems like a great match...except he has a girlfriend. Josey, icy and oh-so-intimidating. 

But Theo and Josey aren't like anyone Taylor's met before; Josey grew up in a polyamorous family, and the two of them have a history of letting a third person in to their relationship. It's nothing Taylor's ever considered before...but she really likes Theo.

Her feelings for Josey, though? 

That's where it really gets complicated.

3 unwraps who we love and how we love, in numbers as odd as we are.

why Hannah, is that a queer polyamory book for teenagers??



And you can preorder it RIGHT THE HELL HERE.  It's $3.99 and like come on, even I have $3.99. You can swing it.

So. Why am I doing this now, and why with this project? A couple reasons. 

1. Otherwise, I don't have a book coming out until 2018.

Exactly, Sam. Exactly. 

2. I love traditional publishing, but I really love the idea of getting to do a few (????) things on the side my schedule and on my terms. I've bitched endlessly on twitter about the number of adults things need to go through before teenagers can see them. This way there's only one (me. I'm old now). 

3. This book is really, really personal to me (wiiiiiiink) so it seemed like a good one for me to have total control over. 

4. I'm curious what will happen. 

So! Shake them piggy banks, preorder (once again that link is RIGHT HERE), tell all your friends and families and enemies, and watch my twitter for updates. Ciao, bellas, and happy Hannahween.

I can't wait to read this! I've been interested in reading about the poly experience, as I have several friends who've been in (both successful and unsuccessful) poly relationships, and it's a lifestyle I know so little about.

Also, yay more Hannah books! The world needs more Hannah books!

I've already asked my library to obtain copies for digital circulation. =) As soon as it's available pretty much anywhere other than Amazon, I will happily buy it for myself too! I try to give the behemoth as little of my money as possible, though, for many reasons.
