I was gone for the majority of September, and with school/baseball/band, etc, I am more behind on blog posts than usual! I’ve been drafting like a fiend this month, but I wanted to share some pictures from my early fall adventures!
First, from San Diego Comic Con, with a glass of Game of Thrones mead in the Wired Lounge:
Finally meeting Katie B. Mundie Mom at the Scholastic party:
At the Decatur Book Festival, being terrified by Courtney Stevens, who was dressed as a Shadowhunter for Dragon Con!
Where Michelle Hodkin MADE ME RAP:
From the YA AdVANture Tour (more photos and a travel log HERE at Publisher’s Weekly):
Me and Tessa Gratton, right after a bartender asked me if I was Tessa’s mother:
Sonia Gensler and Tara Hudson, right after a bartender asked if I was Tessa’s mother:
Tara Hudson, cry-laughing because a bartender asked if I was Tessa’s mother.
On the way to the Carolina Mountains Literary Festival I got to stay with the most lovely Stephanie Perkins, and she hosted a yummy dinner for me! Pic is of Beth Revis, Megan Shepard, Meagan Spooner and Steph:
And Steph has a legit skeleton. In her closet.
At the Parapalooza SIBA event in New Orleans, where I had to read a paragraph to book sellers (thanks for the photo and Publisher’s Weekly mention, Paige Crutcher!):
With Terra McVoy and Shannon Messenger at the mind-blowingly amazing Anderson’s 10th annual YA conference:
Lemon Drop at the Anderson’s conference hotel – half of which ended up in Michael Grant’s lap (due to clumsiness – I am a GESTURER):
At the Southern Festival of Books with my new favorite person, Sharon Cameron:
And with Sonia Gensler at SoFest – we stood there for a REASON (I like big butts and I cannot lie):
Milo the Cat, glad I’m home, and resting his head on my notes:
And finally, what I’m working on now. Well, a bit of setting from what I’m working on now:
Hope you’re all having a lovely fall!
