Guest Post: Books and Fashion by Amy Spalding

As a fashion obsessed person, I'm excited to be able to host this post and to have Amy Spalding on the blog today. In case you didn't know, Amy is the author of the Reece Malcolm List and her new book, Ink is Thicker Than Water, comes out tomorrow, December 3rd! I personally love getting to know the character's style in books and that's what this post is all about. We even get a sneak peek into her third book, which doesn't come out until 2015!

Guest Post by Amy Spalding:


Once I saw my friend Maurene Goo's post on her characters' fashion, I need I had to
steal borrow her great idea. I love clothes, and I love putting together outfits, so this is the stuff my brainstorming heart craves. For my second book Ink Is Thicker than Water, I started with my main character, Kellie:
