Utopia Conference

utopia.png

You gotta fight, for your right to PAAAARRRTYYY! Or fight to write books. Whatevs! I will be there, folks, in dual capacities. First, I'll have copies of all my books for purchase, and I'll be hanging around my table during the entire conference to sign them. And second, I'll be there as an official from Blaze Publishing and able to talk to you about this amazing little publisher, where we're going, and who we want to bring with us. Cool kids jump on the bus!

I hope to see you there. Make sure you buy your tickets and hotel room early, as they tend to sell out!

Riverdale Literacy Festival

I am so excited to announce that I will once again attend the Riverdale Literacy Festival in Fort Myers, Florida! This is by far my favorite event of the year. I can't wait to hang out with the students at Riverdale. And I'm pretty sure there will be a Barnes & Noble signing scheduled as well. Check back for more details on that!

UtopYA 2015

UtopYA is like THE event you want to go to. Okay, maybe it's THE event I want to go to. But it's a place where authors, readers, bloggers, and random strangers checking into a hotel collide. It's a place to make friends, to learn, to sell some books, to have some books signed, and to chat with your favorite authors. And it's not stiff or formal or too good for anyone. It's EVERYONE's conference, and I hope you can make it in 2015. I'll be there!

Panelist at B&N

That's right! I'm coming to Florida, and no trip to the best state in the country during the winter would be complete without a visit to the local Barnes and Noble. Stop in and see me, along with nine other amazing young adult authors for a chat and signing.

Hope to see you there!

Riverdale Literacy Festival

What's better than a high school literacy festival in FLORIDA? Nothing. That's what. Not only will I be near the sun and sand while my family (God love 'em) will be stuck in cold Virginia, but I'll be near my sister, a bunch of kids who love to read, and awesome authors I know and love. I can't wait. Make sure you check out the event and donate to help out the students if you can.

Book Launch Party!!

Join me at Macintosh books on Wednesday, March 5th, to celebrate the release of Shattered Secrets. There will be books. There will be autographs. There will be laughing and books and ME! Did I mention BOOKS? I mean, who can resist the smell of a book store? The glue holding together the bindings. The aging paper. The coffee. There's always coffee!

I'll be selling copies of Shattered Secrets and Wilde's Fire.  And Macintosh will provide wine for the older crowd. I might bring along some chocolate. You might get some, if I don't eat it all first!
