Springing forward…

March 14, 2011

…with all sorts of new changes going on online!

A new book (available for pre-order just over to your right? Do you see? Yes!) means it’s time for a new look for my website. Alas, it won’t be ready for a bit yet, and I wanted to be sure that my most recent updates were up and running for those of you who are just dying to keep up with moi. Hence, this lovely blog. Read the blog. Share the blog. Embrace the blog.

Publishers Weekly called family “dark, mesmerizing, and hazy,” which has been enough to keep me going while I angst about plotting the follow-up (NOT sequel) novel, and I’ve also created a Micol Ostow Facebook page. I mean, you know, if you’re into that kind of thing.

In the meantime, there are events on the horizon! I will be live, in person, with hair brushed, which anyone who has ever stopped by unannounced will tell you is an occasion to marvel. Notably, here:

THE NYC TEEN AUTHOR FESTIVAL:

*Note that the Fest will be running all this week, though my panel is on Friday. I am on the mend from a nasty cold, but will be at as many of the events as my sinuses allow. You should try to be, too! Full schedule here.

Friday March 18th

NYPL South Court, 42nd Street

2:10 – 3:00: Telling the Truths – Hard Topics, Illuminating Fiction

With:
Eireann Corrigan, Donna Freitas, Sarah Darer Littman, and Kimberly Marcus

So, there you have it – three chances to see me potentially saying something useful! Imagine!

In the meantime, in celebration of the new book and new blog, how about a giveaway? Post a comment here, then head over to Facebook to “like” my author page, and you’re entered to win an ARC of family. Exciting, no?

    Yay! Thanks for finding me, Nina! I think you win an arc just for being the first commenter on my new blog. 🙂


  3. Hi Micol,

    Thank you so much for swinging by and leaving a comment. I truly appreciate it when authors take the time to comment on reviews. I enjoyed Family and think it was a great way to introduce a big issue in today’s world.

    Anyways, I wish you luck with this new novel. Let me know if you ever want to do an interview or guest post.

    Valorie 🙂
