My debut year has been wonderful and hectic and crazy (as most years are for me, to be honest). But the best part of being a new author has been when I get to connect with readers, either through the wonderful emails that you send me, or at events. If you live in the Ohio area, I'd love to see YOU at a couple of festivals I'll be attending.
Here's the scoop!
This Saturday I'll be at Books by the Banks in Cincinnati, signing books and participating in a panel titled "Are Today's Teen/Tween Books Too Dark?" Joining me will be Julia Karr, Kristina McBride and Katrina Kittle. The panel starts at 2 p.m., and I can't wait! If you're in the area, please try to stop by, and bring your kids - there are tons of fun activities for children at this great festival. You can learn more about it here.
On November 5, I'll be at the Buckeye Book Fair in Wooster, Ohio. It's touted as the largest one-day literary event in Ohio, and I've heard wonderful things about it. For more information, look here!
I wish I had more news to report, but at the moment I'm hard at work on a new project. Perhaps soon it will give me something cool to announce. I have a couple of other things up my sleeve as well but am not ready to discuss them yet. But stay tuned - I'm hoping for another exciting, crazy year to come!
