So Happy You Liked The First Chapter!

I had a bit of trouble with the text in Chapter One (I couldn't get any indentations to show up, which made the paragraphs run into each other. Aack!) I wrote about my margin frustration but those comments somehow mysteriously disappeared upon posting, so sorry it came out in such a chunky block! Anyway, I already had one positive, cheerful response to my setup, which makes my heart sing! As for chapter two, there are legal issues when posting copyrighted material, so I'm not sure if I can sneak that in or not. I'll try to find out. In the meantime, thanks again for the positive feedback. You won't believe what happens to Cameryn in California, mawhahah! (And yes, it has to do with Justin!) XO's, Alane

Ummmmmmmmmmmm.......you'll have to wait and see. But it's a shocker, I can tell you that! You'll never see it coming...

I'll see if I'm allowed to post the other chapters. Like I said, there are copyright issues I have to deal with, since the book is no longer technically mine but belongs to Penguin. I'm so excited for you to find out the next twists and turns!!!

Zipped...lips! Everyone who has read it has LOVED it, so hang on and wait and see! I'm off to watch the Utah vs. BYU game (GO UTES - okay, full disclosure, I went to the University of Utah)and I'm making my famous cookies, so I'd better hurry and start baking! We're supposed to get a royal pounding (boo!) but I've got my fingers crossed my team will prevail. More anon!

No matter what happens in the book, as long as Cameryn and Justin are together at the END, that is all that matters to me. I will be happy :)

Not yet - it's Sunday, and my editor doesn't come into her office on the weekend! But thanks for being so enthusiastic, 'cause, like I said, first chapters are the hardest, and if you like what I've done there, I promise you a wild ride!

XO's,

P.S. The University of Utah won in the BEST GAME EVER!!! IN THE LAST MOMENTS BYU got really close to scoring, but Utah deflected the ball and the bazillion fans rushed the field, but THEN the BYU quarterback held up his finger and kept pointing like "We're number one," and I was like, hey, sucker, you just LOST, so put down the finger. AACK! The referees, upon further review, decided there was still one second left on the clock. So they called out their BYU kicker, which would have been a miracle play because he was at the 51 yard line. He kicked it and we deflected it and the stadium went WILD, with everyone streaming onto the field in a frenzied victory. But the referees got together in yet ANOTHER huddle and came to the mike and said, "The fans rushed onto the field before the play was complete. That's a fifteen yard penalty." So by now the fans are RABID, and they had to get security shoo them off the field and bring the BYU kicker back AGAIN with a second on the clock, only this time he was right in field goal range, which would have tied the score. We were screaming, the kicker was ready, and then...BONK, the ball hit the side of the goal and bounced off and we won fair and square!!! But talk about a nail-biter! GO UTES!

I called my editor on Friday but still have not been able to connect. Believe it or not, I have to get permission to publish anything, since penguin Putnam owns my book. I promise promise promise I'll let you know as soon as I do, but I CAN say that my agent talked with my editor and they LOVED The Dead Giveaway, so things should be moving forward SOON! Finger crossed, toes crossed, hair braided for luck!
