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.

So Long, Summer
I know that summer doesn't officially end until Labor Day, but school starts this week for my kids, so it's hard to ignore the impending approach of autumn. As always, I have mixed feelings about the idea of summer slipping away. I all but took the summer off as far as writing is concerned, and while I'm not ready for a strict routine yet (or the idea of nightly homework!), I am excited to start writing again. I'm working on my final line edits for BLACK ICE before it goes to copyedits, but I should have the book wrapped up before September is over. At that point, I get to start a new book, yay! I've had a story idea brewing in my mind all summer, and typically, when I start to envision scenes or hear snippets of dialogue, it's a sign that I'm on to something--that I'm excited enough about this project to work with it for the long haul. Also, that it could be an actual book.
If you don't follow me on Twitter, you should! This past week I posted a few images that give me inspiration for this new project. In the upcoming months, I'll be tweeting teasers for BLACK ICE. I'll also be sharing information on BLACK ICE's release date, cover, a description of the story, and all other pertinent information.
Finally, I'll leave you with a few pictures from our latest family adventure. We rented a lake house on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire, toured Boston, and I even got to check an item off my bucket list--eating a lobster dinner on the coast of Maine.
