THE COLD ROOM hits bookstores today!

I can't believe it's finally here.

THE COLD ROOM is in bookstores across the country today in all formats - mass-market, audio and ebook.

There is a great deal of information about the book on my website, including the soundtrack - yes, the theme song for this book is Warren Zevon's excellent ode Excitable Boy - but there are many more songs that helped inspire the story.

There are interviews galore here on the Tao of JT, plus news, and reviews. Stop by the foreign editions page and see the amazing overseas covers - the Taylor Jackson books will be published in 14 countries by the end of the year, including Poland, Holland, Spain, France, Australia... the list goes on. I'm so excited!

The tour starts tonight at the Linebaugh Library in Murfreesboro, Tennessee (see all tour dates here). I'm so excited to have the opportunity to read and sign in five middle Tennessee counties, including my first Nashville event at Davis Kidd Thursday, February 25 at 7 p.m.

I'm criss-crossing the country to support the book, both physically and on the radio. I'll be updating the blog with tour news and pictures, so stop by and say hello.

I'd love to see you at one of the signings. We'll be talking about art and music and research, love triangles and series characters, and as always, I'm happy to address your questions about the books, the writing process, getting published - whatever tickles your fancy.

Allow me to get all mushy for a moment. Success for a writer is borne from a single place. The reader is the most important component in the author's relationship to her art. And I've been blessed with the most loyal, wonderful and caring fans in the world.

I just want to say thank you. Because without you, there would be no Taylor Jackson book launching today.

Don't forget that you can download the first book in the series, ALL THE PRETTY GIRLS, free from my website directly to your computer, or download it to your e-Reader directly from by March 31, 2010.

So without further ado, I'll be on my way. Thank you again for all of your amazing support. I hope you enjoy THE COLD ROOM!

All my best,
