Check out this Spotify playlist for THE WAY I USED TO BE! These are some of the songs I listened to while I was writing the book. A few of them remind me of specific scenes, but most just helped me to get into main character Eden's head space (admittedly not always a fun place to be). Hope you enjoy!

PSA RE: THE WAY I USED TO BE's paperback release!

If you haven't picked up your copy of TWIUTB yet, now is a great time because the paperback edition comes out in just a few days (March 7th)!

And...if you buy it in the month of March, then you'll be helping to give back to a very worthy cause - RAINN (the Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network), the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. In April, I'll be donating a portion of my author proceeds from March paperback sales to RAINN, in honor of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month (which is April, every year).

TWIUTB deals with sexual assault and one girl's struggle to find her voice and her strength in its aftermath. This is a story that is not only very personal to me, but one that is a reality for far too many young people, and that's why I feel so strongly about giving back to this organization that brings so much help, support, justice, and hope to millions of survivors.

Check out the link below to an article in Bustle on TWIUTB and more books that are giving back!

As always, thank you for reading! Until next time...

xo, Amber

Hi! I'm so happy to share this announcement: My friend and fellow YA author, Amy Reed, is putting together a new anthology of diverse YA voices that are speaking out about injustice and intolerance. It's called OUR STORIES, OUR VOICES, and I couldn't be more honored to be contributing an essay, among so many amazing writers!
