One Story Debutante Ball 2012

So you guys know about the One Story Debutante Ball that I'm taking part in on Friday, April 20, 2012 in beautiful "Paris on the Gowanus" Brooklyn?  

I am wearing a dress exactly like this one....
I know what you are saying.  "Didn't you do that already?  How many times are you going to be a debutante, you egomaniac?"  

As many times as they ask.  

See, the first time I did it, TECHNICALLY my book wasn't even out yet. So TECHNICALLY I was not yet a DEBUT author so... And I love it so.

Also, I just had a baby and was all hormonal and insane and this year that is not the case.  I think I'm wearing a cute punk rock kind of outfit and I'm getting my hair cut at Dickson Hair Salon that afternoon so hopefully I will look cool too.

The amazing and wonderful Tara Altebrando is going to be my mentor-escort and she is both a mentor and escort- and not in the dirty way.  She is also a parent and a serious writer and she is funny and interesting and I adored Dreamland Social Club and the more I hang out with her the more I love her.  We are going to have so much fun! 

No hat this year.

No heaving breasts full of milk for a newborn.

No fake title for a yet-to-be-published book.

No glasses just lots and lots of black eyeliner and black eyeshadow (my new favorite thing).

I love One Story, I love that they do this. And this year, they interviewed me! If you think of it, send some $$ their way, and find out more about One Teen Story here.

I'll be sure to take lots of pictures and let you know all about it.  In the meantime, I'm supposed to be working on a keynote address for the National English Honor Society at a school in Long Island and it's going great!  Any suggestions much appreciated though.  And I'm doing laundry.  And I'm OBSESSED with this tumblr.

Love ya lots and I love comments too.  xoxo
