A small book with big dreams, and a heartfelt request.

Hi, lovelies.

I wanted to blog yesterday, when THE ARCHIVED hit shelves, but when I opened up the blank post template, I couldn’t do it. I felt so many things–those scattered, shimmering snow globe glitter kind of feelings–and for someone who is supposedly good at putting them in words, I had none.

This has been such a journey, one with its fair share of highs and lows and highs again, and when I think about how far my little book has come, and all the people who’ve come with it, and all the people who will now be able to, it leaves me without air, let alone words.

This book has been my book for so long, and now it’s yours.


I’ve done everything I can to help it succeed.

And now it’s up to you.

If you can, buy a copy.

If you love it, spread the word.

Sing it.

Shout it.

Because that’s how books find their way. By love and voice. Mine can only reach so far. But together, we can give The Archived its chance.

Believe it or not, The Archived started out as a small book with big dreams. It’s already come so far because of your excitement, your support, your belief. And mine. I believe in this book with all my heart. If you can help it, please, please do.

Happy birthday, little book.

    So happy for (and weirdly proud of?) you! The Archived deserves to go big! (This is Amy D from over at Twitter :), btw )

  4. My copy already has a queue for people to read it, and I can think of nothing better. I wear my ARCHIVED tote everywhere and get questions about it at school, walking around Manhattan, and on the subway (so many on the subway!). I’ve had so many conversations in honest praise of the story in this book and I’m so happy that it’s bookday is finally here.

    The little book that can – and did.
