Road to Publication

Hi everyone. I’m excited to be here and share the story behind the story!

How to Quit Your Crush is my ninth published book, but it’s also a first.

My first companion novel!

Mai appeared in ANNOUNCING TROUBLE as I wrote that book during the summer of 2017.  She was crushing on a baseball player who was all wrong for her. But whatever. This wasn’t her story.

Then my editor, Stacy, said she would really like to know Mai’s story. In fact, would I please write a follow up about Mai and Anthony?

I loved the idea. But…I hadn’t thought it through. As I thought more about Mai and Anthony, their story startled to bubble up inside of me. Kind of like their attraction.

I wrote HOW TO QUIT YOUR CRUSH in the summer of 2019. It took me about 4 months and then another 3 months to do revisions. There were a lot of challenges to a follow up, but also some unexpected joys. I loved visiting with Josie, Garrett and their other friends again. 

I hope you’ll love it just as much.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by! For more of the inside scoop along with excerpts and giveaways, please sign up for my monthly newsletter HERE.

Mai Senn knows Anthony Adams is no good for her – no matter how hard she might crush on him. She’s valedictorian; he’s a surf bum. She’s got plans, he’s got his art. Complete opposites in every way. Vinegar and baking soda, they once joked. A chemical reaction that bubbled.

Yeah, they bubbled. Maybe still do.

Good thing Anthony’s got the perfect plan: two weeks to prove just how not good they are together. Whoever can come up with the worst date—something the other will seriously hate, proving how incompatible they truly are—wins.

Like taking a snake-phobe to the Reptile House at the zoo (his idea).

Or a cooking class where they don’t even get to eat the food (her idea).

It’s all about the competition, and it’s meant to help them finally crush their crushes. But it wasn’t supposed to be so hot. Or so fun. And when Mai’s future becomes at stake, will she be able to do the right thing and quit Anthony forever?

Amy grew up loving to read and figured out at an early age that books were magical and necessary. She started submitting her own stories to be published when she was thirteen. Amy is now the award-winning author of nine books spanning young adult, middle grade, and picture books. Titles for Entangled include Announcing Trouble and the companion novel, How to Quit Your Crush. Amy lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband and a puppy who is training them.
