Hello all! I'm SO excited for Take a Bow to finally be out. A little about the book: Take a Bow follows four students at the (fictional) New York City School of the Creative and Performing Arts. The book opens up as each student auditions for CPA then jumps ahead to Senior Year. I canNOT wait for you to meet Carter, Sophie, Ethan, and Emme. Seriously, I can't wait. And I'm happy to report that you don't have to wait until April 1-ish* to meet them!
I've teamed up with four wonderful sites - Mundie Moms, Novel Novice, Eve's Fan Garden, and PageTurners - for Take a Bow Sneak Peek Week. Starting Monday, February 27th, you'll get a chance to read the opening auditions of each character. The sites will have a special intro from me, the excerpt, and we'll even be doing Take a Bow giveaways! Here's the schedule:
Monday, February 27: CARTER - Mundie Moms
Tuesday, February 28: SOPHIE - Novel Novice
Wednesday, February 29: ETHAN - Eve's Fan Garden
Thursday, March 1: EMME - PageTurners
THEN! On Friday, March 2nd, I'll be posting an excerpt from senior year on my blog. So by the end of the week, you'll have access to the first 30 pages of Take a Bow! (HUGE thanks to my publisher, Point/Scholastic, for letting us do this!)
I'm so proud of this book and am excited to share this special preview with all of you. I got an advance copy of the finished book and it's gorgeous (I'm allowed to say stuff like that because I have nothing to do with the design or production!). And as you can tell, it's love.
So now you have only a week to wait to start reading the beginning of the book! I hope you all enjoy Take a Bow Sneak Peek Week!
*Take a Bow does not have a "strict" on-sale date, so while we are saying that the pub date is April 1st, you'll most likely start seeing it in-stores late March. Hooray!
