  • @haleshannon Thanks. I signed a bunch of inserts at home, and it took me SO LONG. I changed to a different pen, and that actually helped ...

In a few weeks, I’ll be in the UK. Here’s everything you need to know about tour dates, special editions, ribbon bookmarks and fancy Tatty Devine necklaces.

I’m coming to the UK this summer!

Posted on April 16th, 2014

I’m coming to the UK in July, and I actually couldn’t be more excited about it. Don’t even keep reading this post if you can’t bear to watch someone go indiscriminately capslock.
I visited London two years ago when Attachments came out, and it was one of the best experiences of my life.





AND MAYBE SEE MARTIN FREEMAN LIVE ON STAGE. (Dear God, somebody help me make this happen.)


I wish I could tell Park and Eleanor about this.

Posted on January 31st, 2014


So, this is the news I’ve been keeping secret so long, and I’m super-super excited about it.

I signed a deal with Calista Brill at FIRST SECOND BOOKS to write two graphic novels.

The first will be a collaboration with Faith Erin Hicks, the writer/artist of SO MANY GREAT COMICS, including Friends with Boys.

This all happened because of mutual admiration and Twitter. My career advice is now: Get excited about the things you love, and then TELL EVERYONE.


The LANDLINE cover is here!

The LANDLINE cover is here! And I love it so much!

I might even love it more than my other covers … which is a WHOLE LOTTA LOVE.


Is Eleanor fat? Or does Eleanor just THINK she’s fat?

Posted on July 26th, 2013

Sometimes people say to me, “But Eleanor isn’t REALLY fat, right? I mean, she just THINKS she’s fat.” I never know how to answer that question, but this is how it makes me feel . . .
