Interview with The Rules author Stacey Kade!

Project Paper Doll: The Rules*Kermit Flail* Oh! Oh! Stacey Kade has a new Young Adult book out this week! The Rules Book Birthday is April 23rd. Go get it. ๐Ÿ˜€ Click HERE for my vlog review!

I adore Stacey. I met her at the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in 2007. (I think) She had just released her first novel and I fell in love with her energy and her stories. I own all of her books now. Including those she wrote way back then as Stacey Klemstein. (I know, lol so long ago! ๐Ÿ˜› ) They are signed and will be worth heaps someday cause she is completely awesomesauce and more people are discovering that too.
