We here at Authors are ROCKSTARS! are so happy to be back with another interview in our suicide prevention series-- this time, we have an interview with author Jenny Torres Sanchez. Jenny's most recent book, Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frankie Garcia, ties in with our efforts to raise awareness about suicide prevention, and we are so grateful to Jenny for taking the time to chat with us!

WE ARE OFFICIALLY BACK IN ACTION. :D So excited to bring you our first podcast in 2015, an interview with Jessica Van der Stad of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Yes, we know, she's not an author, but she is a ROCKSTAR. So we are giving ourselves permission to stray from our usual format, and we hope you'll come along for the ride! As we mentioned in our previous post, we are running the Star Wars Half Marathon as part of Team AFSP. Raising awareness and funds for an important cause doesn't happen by itself-- Jessica is the wonderful woman who makes it happen.
In addition to meeting Jessica and hearing about the lifesaving work of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, you'll get to find out what we've been up to over the past few months too... LOTS of big life changes!
Without further ado, let's get to the show!
Thank you so much again, Jessica!
And listeners, we are going to be putting up a handful of signed books up for auction on eBay very soon to continue our fundraising efforts for AFSP. Stay tuned for the link! Authors featured include Cassandra Clare (including a super rare ARC!), Beth Revis, Francesca Lia Block, and more.
EDIT: The auctions are now eBay. Come follow this link to bid!

This is so exciting you guys. You see that? That's Allison and I TOGETHER AGAIN. Despite thousands of miles between us, we're coming back. We miss you. We miss talking about books. We're kicking off our re-launch with some special interviews on a topic that is important to us - mental health and suicide prevention.
So what's the story? Allison and I both started running last year and decided that we'd like to do a race together at Disneyland and do it for a good cause. We decided to run for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, a cause that is very important to both of us. It was so much fun to raise money for an organization doing such amazing and important work. We had a blast representing AFSP at the Tinkerbell 10k event in May (pictured here along with our friend Estelle).
We are really looking forward to sharing some special interviews with you in the coming months. We are also putting together a signed book auction with all proceeds going to AFSP. So keep an eye on the blog because WE... ARE... BAAAACK.
