Prom & Twins

Hey there,
Erin Downing here. It has been a long time since I last posted (sorry, Jenn!), but I've been a little preoccupied...

First, it's PROM season! Let's celebrate! I have seen so many lovely (and not-so-lovely) dresses and tuxes out and about for pre-dance dinner and I'm nostalgic! I loved prom - obviously, since I wrote a book about going to multiple proms. I was visiting my hometown of Duluth, MN, last week and there was a prom going on somewhere in town. I seriously considered trying to crash, but would have had a hard time fitting in given this next point, which is...

The second reason I've been preoccupied is that I am pregnant...with TWINS! Yes, seriously. I have one little baby already, so I am going to have one ginormous family. I am an only child, so I've always wanted to have a house full of people - this will certainly be that. In the midst of all this pregnancy stuff, I've also been working on a new proposal for another romantic comedy. I'm working on something with a big (obnoxious) family theme - seems fitting, doesn't it?

Wish me luck on the proposal - send creative vibes my way. All I want to do is sleep and relax in the sun (it's so warm in NY!), but I need to get cracking if I want to try to write this book before these babies are due.

Later,
E.

YAY ERIN!!! So happy for you! After the big family book you can start writing the ever-popular twin book!!!

Aw, congrats! I loved your books, they're some of my favorite romantic comedies!! My sister is pregnant with her first baby, a little girl, and she's due any day! I'm so excited! I like your idea about the big family book and Jenn's idea about the twin book! It would be really cool if you did a twin book where one of the twins was really popular and the other (the narrator) was a geek, but ended up being cooler than her sister. I don't know, just a thought. :)

I love that idea, Anonymous! Hmmm...I don't want to steal plot ideas, but...I may have to play with that suggestion once I see what twins are like.
So glad you like my books!

Congrat's, Erin! I can't even imagine having twins. I can't wait to hear boys, girls, or one of each.
My creative vibes are heading your way right now, can you feel them? :)
Good luck!

Congratulations to you and your family, Erin! Aww! Obvious question alert: When are you due? How old is your munchkin?

Yesterday afternoon, I visited the library.

I saw two copies of Prom Crashers nestled side-by-side in the paperback spinners.

You can't make this sort of thing up.

Yay for Erin! I saw it on an end-cap at Books-A-Million a few days ago with all the prom books. :)

Congratulations Erin. By the way, I love your books and I have twin sisters myself. They can be a handful but they get a long with each other most of the time. =].
Good Luck and I can`t wait to read Prom Crashers!
