New Haircut & Upcoming Events

I know I made you guys wait all week and I'm sorry, it was just kinda busy, but I did get the haircut I was talking about on Monday's blog.



Well this is my version of it. The top wasn't long enough yet for my stylist to define it quite like the picture, but it should be by next time. I do love the asymmetrical thing.


Here's a close-up on the red, which I really like. I might do it all by itself next time. I'm also trying to decide it I want to add more color, like further back along my part of in the pieces that frame my face.

Of course, my other take on it was adding a spiky back to it, which you get kind of a sense of from these side view shots. I think I might go shorter and spikier in the back next time:

And I definitely need more cute barrettes. This haircut just screams for cute barrettes. But I'm totally digging this. I think I'll be keeping it for awhile.

Want to come and see my haircut live and in person? Well, I have readings the next two Fridays so you in are in luck. Next Friday, November 20th, is going to be one of the coolest readings I've been a part of.
I've teamed up with fellow Chicago YA authors Jessica Hopper (A Girl’s Guide to Rocking), James Kennedy (Order of the Odd Fish), Daniel Kraus (The Monster Variations), and Adam Selzer (Andrew North Blows Up The World, I Put a Spell On You, and How to Get Suspended and Influence People) as The Sisters Rock 'n' Roll & The Brothers Delacorte. We are doing our first of hopefully a few events at Bookmarket in Glenview, IL (at Hangar One in The Glen, 2561 Navy Blvd).
It's gonna be crazy fun, a lively reading, panel & Q&A session. Plus we'll do a raffle, signing, and there will be free pizza! So if you are anywhere near Glenview you should totally come! The festivities begin at 7:30. Here is the rad flyer they made for us:

And if Glenview is a little far North for you, I'm doing another hometown event on Black Friday, November 27 at 7:30 pm at Barbara's Bookstore at 1100 Lake St in Oak Park. It'll just be lil ol' me, but it should still be fun. So I hope you can come to one or both.

Have a great weekend!

I definitely love the haircut. It works for you perfectly! The color is so ideal. I adore hair styles like this, though I don't think I could ever pull them off.

So wish I could go to the YA night!
