About Me

Hi! I'm Becca Fitzpatrick, the author of the internationally bestselling HUSH, HUSH saga. When not writing, I'm most likely running, prowling sale racks for shoes (stilettos, please!), or enjoying one of life's many little indulgences: Ice cream, Veronica Mars, losing myself in a book, painting my toenails, or simply daydreaming. I do my best to update this blog as frequently as possible with news on upcoming events, tips for writers, and all things pertaining to my books.

Books And Tours and Stuff, Oh My!

Hey guys!

A couple first-y things:

1. I am so thrilled and honored and humbled that HUSH, HUSH has made NPR's 100 Best-Ever Teen Novels. So many of my favorite childhood books are on the list, including ANNE OF GREEN GABLES, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, THE OUTSIDERS, LORD OF THE FLIES, and THE LAST UNICORN. It feels incredible to be included with books that meant so much to me then, that mean so much to me now. Here's a link to the full list.

2. Speaking of awesome awards, HUSH, HUSH won the North Carolina Young Adult Book Award! Thank you, thank you to the teens from N.C. who voted for HUSH, HUSH. Awards like this--where teens are the judges!--mean the world to me. It's so cool knowing the book resonates with you.

3. Today my editor shared with me the initial script for the FINALE book trailer. You guys. It is so cool. There are so many juicy clues about the storyline and, in a way, I think the trailer is going to be a mini movie in itself! I can't wait to see it. I can't wait to share it!

4. A little more FINALE news. My ed sent over posters yesterday that I'll be giving away on tour at my events. The posters are so glam! And sexy. And dark. And, yes, those famous black jeans of Patch's are on it...

Okay, now...tour news! U.S. tour news to be exact. I mentioned a while ago that this year's tour would be shorter (I was gone 29 straight days last year!) and I apologize in advance if I'm not visiting your state. If you're close to any of my tour stops, I hope you'll come out and see me. I promise we're going to have lots of fun and I'm so very excited to meet you, answer your questions, and sign your books! One more thing to keep in mind - my publisher decides which cities and stores I visit, NOT me. If I had infinite time, I would visit you all!

The LOVE HAS NO FINALE Tour...

October 23 – Provo City Library (Provo, UT)
October 24 – Changing Hands (Tempe, AZ)
October 25 – Portland B&N (Portland, OR)
October 26 – Blue Willow Bookstore (Houston, TX)
October 27 – 28 – Texas Book Festival (Austin, TX)
October 29 - Books Inc (San Francisco, CA) 

As details become more cemented, I'll be sure to post store names, addresses, and event times. Also, I'm going on tour with other authors (love!) so I'll be posting that info too. It is going to be GOOD TIMES.
