Newbery award winner and New York Times bestselling author

Just wanted to give you the heads up this morning. I’m on tour. Yep — and I’m still in my pajamas as I’m telling you this. That’s because it’s a blog tour — the single most author-friendly invention since the pencil. Eight YA bloggers have invited me to answer questions — some serious, some funny — about my novel, The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind. For me, it’s a chance to channel my inner Where’s Waldo without ever leaving my kitchen computer. I meet their readers, talk about my project, and get the word out in anticipation of the March 12 pub date. For the bloggers, it’s a chance for fresh content and connections. For you, it’s a chance to win stuff (sometimes) and get the scoop on what is behind the book you’re reading.

Today, you can catch me on Waste Paper Prose, where I did  a  v-log (video version) at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens here in Richmond, VA. Don’t make fun of my hair in the last section. It was windy, okay? Visit at

I hope you’ll make time this week to stop in on these blogs and get to know some rabid book lovers. You can see the dates and stops on the skyscraper that I’ve posted in the sidebar to the right. A big thanks to:  Waste Paper Prose, Book Briefs,, The Book Cellar, Teen Reads, A Cupcake and a Latte, Joyousreads, and The Hispanic Reader.

You’re invited to Meg’s book launch party for The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind. Saturday, March 17, 2012, 1 – 3 pm, bbgb tales for kids, 3100 Kensington Avenue, Richmond, VA

    Can’t wait to read this, Meg! The kids and I will try and make the signing. It’s my late grandma’s birthday that day so it will be a happy way to remember Mimi, a writer herself.

    GO, Meg! (Love the skyscraper, too!)

  2. Meg! Happy blog tour kick off today! You and Wastepaper Prose make a great team. The video is awesome and your hair is always awesome, too. Congratulations on the showering of good things – out pops spring!

  3. The video reading and interview came out very well. It is always a delight to be able to ‘attend’ a reading and hear the author’s views on character and motivation to write the story-well, of course better in person but for those of us not in your state it’s great second choice.
