by Mindy McGinnis

I signed my contract for NOT A DROP TO DRINK a little over two years ago. My heart was in my mouth at the time, but I found out it has a funny aftertaste so I've tried to keep it in my chest cavity since then. Starting tomorrow evening I'll be on the Dark Days tour with fellow Harper authors Rae Carson, Michelle Gagnon, Madeleine Roux and Sherry Thomas!

It really is very much a writer's fairy tale, so help me celebrate today by tweeting to me (@MindyMcGinnis) pics of my book in the wild! I'd love to see it popping on shelves as I'm in the air between Ohio and Las Vegas on our first Dark Days tour stop!

Enjoy my trailer, designed by Jennie Bates Bozic and an original song inspired by the book from musician Jack Korbel.
