In the Company of Authors

When I first approached the public relations director at Books and Co., The Greene, in Beavercreek, Ohio, about doing a tussie-mussie demonstration and signing, she was intrigued, but hesitant. When I upped the ante and told her I could assemble a four-author panel of YA authors, she was excited.Turns out that YA Author panel idea is a great one. Even up against a new episode of GLEE, we had over 30 people come out on a rainy Tuesday night to listen and buy our books. A lot of our books.  Woo hoo!And we all had a fabulous time talking about our books, plotting v. pantsing, content and language in YA, and why we write YA. Here's the gang:

As Saundra observed, we are one Elevensie (Sara Bennett Wealer), four Tenners (Julie Kagawa, me, Kay Cassidy, and Kristina McBride), and a Deb (Saundra Mitchell.) Sara and Kristina came out to meet us and cheer us on.

It was so great to meet these awesome authors, and special congrats to Saundra on the release of Shadowed Summer in paperback!

Next stop for me, Cincinnati at Joseph-Beth on Saturday, June 12th at 2 pm. It will seem a little lonely up there, as I'm flying solo this time.
