Happy Summer!

Hello, everyone! Or should I say Bon jour?

Ally here. As some of you may know, I recently went on a big European adventure. (Or…well…a moderately-sized European adventure.)

Thanks to my wonderful UK publisher, Orchard Books, I was able to visit London last month. We got to visit the Guardian offices where I recorded THIS interview. (Check it out if you want to hear me read from ALL FALL DOWN and talk a little about a whole lot of things.)

I also got to do some amazing stuff at the Orchard offices, AND…of course…I got to meet a lot of you!

New Interview With Ally

Hi Everybody!

Ally here.

Yes, it is me. Yes, I am still alive.

I’m happy to say that I’ve finished SEE HOW THEY RUN! (Or, well, the part of SEE HOW THEY RUN I was working on. There will still be some stuff to do in a few weeks, but for now the heavy lifting is over.)

So I’m above water temporarily, and I wanted to share something cool with you.

Magnificent Monday

Hi Everyone!

I took a few weeks off to spend some time with my family but I am back and ready to get this blog up and running again!

Let’s take care of a few house cleaning items.

This blog is for Ally Carter fans who want to have fun and share their love of reading and all things Ally Carter!

I monitor all comments and will not approve any negative comments or comments with your personal information included.

Ally loves Fan Art and I like to post your fan art to her Tumblr page. You can send your art work to [email protected]

Magnificent Sunny Monday!

Hi Everyone!

The sun has finally decided to shine around here!!!

It is also the first day of Summer Break for my daughter! I dropped her off at art camp this morning and can’t wait to see all the fun things she makes by the end of the week.

Anyone else going to art camp this summer? Any other camps? Summer jobs?

Have a good week and hopefully it is sunny where you are!

Magnificent Poetry Monday

Hi Everyone!

We are going to do something FUN today!

Ally was sent this really cool poem made from lines from All Fall Down.

My mother’s killer

A needle in an international haystack

A guy who knew what he was doing

He was Caucasian

Six one or two

Do you really believe that’s true?

A long list of people who have told me I am delusional

Tired of feeling helpless

All

Fall

Down

It is a style called Found Poetry.
