The galleys have arrived!

The Secrets of Top Students Galleys

There’s nothing like the moment when you see your first book in print! I just got five galleys (advance, uncorrected copies) in the mail today from my publisher, Sourcebooks EDU. It’s such a strange and wonderful feeling to see all your hard work finally coming to fruition.

The book’s coming out in May, but you can also pre-order it on Amazon here:
The Secrets of Top Students: Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Acing High School and College


It’s official – I have a book contract!

I recently signed with Sourcebooks, Inc., and I couldn’t ask for a better publisher for my book, tentatively titled Rise to the Top: The Valedictorian’s Guide to Academic Success in High School and College.  My book will be in excellent company – Sourcebooks is also the publisher of Harlan Cohen’s The Naked Roommate (the #1 book on college life with over 125,000 copies sold), Christie Garton’s U Chic, the Fiske Guides, the Gruber Test Prep series, and much, much more. Check out their book list here.

It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to publish a book, and I hope this is the first of many. I’m thrilled to be able to share my study techniques with high school and college students across the country. None of this would have been possible without my wonderful agent, Coleen O’Shea, and my friends and family – thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I am in extreme writing mode right now, and I love it. To read more about my book (and to sign up for my book list and contest), please go here.
