both sides now_approvedWhy yes, there’s been a redesign around these parts. It’s like any other living space- you get a little tired of the drapes or the wall color or even just feel the need to move the furniture around just to give it a fresh look. The old one was beautiful, but a bit outdated and I just wanted something a little cleaner and fresher.

Just to get you started, here’s a little FYI on what you’ll find find around these parts. There’s the obligatory About me page where you find out all my deep dark secrets. (Not really, but you do at least find out whether I love milk or dark chocolate. And what my friends think of me.)

Of course, if you’re here for the books, you’ll get information on When the Stars Go Blue (St. Martin’s Griffin/2010), winner of BEST YOUNG ADULT NOVEL: 2011 INTERNATIONAL LATINO BOOK AWARDS, including an excerpt, as well as info on my previous novels, Adiós to My Old Life and It’s Not About the Accent. Also, in the coming weeks, I’ll be adding more information about my upcoming Diversion Books release, Both Sides Now, including links to giveaways and of course, the all-important, release dates and WHERE to buy.

Admittedly, I’m not blogging quite as much as I once did, but I do tweet frequently (sometimes too frequently) and the tweets show up in the sidebar along with a handy link to my Twitter account.  I also update with reasonable frequency on Facebook, so there are various and sundry ways with which to keep up with me. So please, give me a holler- I do enjoy connecting with people. In the meantime, look around and feel to comment if the spirit moves.
