Pretty sure you guys know this by now, but if you need me, I'm not here.
I'M IN NEW YORK FOR BEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Hee. Can you tell I'm EXCITED????)
Not only have I never been to NY before, but thanks to my amazing publicity team at S&S I have a CRAZY-awesome schedule. If any of you are going to be there, here's some of the places where you can find me:
And--this probably doesn't come as a surprise--but I won't have time to put together the MMGM links this week. (I know, SORRY) But here's a list of the people who've participated in the past few weeks, so they'll probably be participating again. Feel free to check out their blogs and see what they're talking about:
Sunday 6/3: I'll be on a panel with Lenore Appelhans, Jenny Han, Tonya Hurley, Carmen Rodrigues, and Siobhan Vivian at the S&S Teen Blogger party, talking about LET THE SKY FALL, among other things. (this event is invitation only, so you know who you are if you're going).
Monday, 6/4, 5:00 pm NY Grand Central Library: I'll be on a panel with fellow middle grade authors Brandon Mull, John Stephens, and Rebecca Stead. (yeah, I'm as amazed as you.) Event information is HERE.
Tuesday, June 5th, 10:30 am - 11:00 am: I'll be signing ARCs of KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES in the Javits autographing area, booth 8. You can find details on that HERE.
Tuesday, June 5th, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm: The Apocalypsises: Meet the authors of 2012's Must Reads. Javits Center: Room 1E02/1E03. Details on who will be there and why you want to stop by can be found HERE.
Wednesday, June 6th, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm: ABFFE's (Mostly) Silent Children's Art Auction. Details are HERE.
Thursday June 7th from 11am - 11:30 am: I'll be on a panel with Sharon Creech, Lauren Oliver, and Judith Viorst discussing "Writing Strong Female Characters in Middle Grade Fiction" in the Javits on the Uptown Stage. More details can be found HERE. And I'm told I'll be signing KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES ARCs afterward.
Insane schedule, right????
Hope to see some of you guys there!!! (and PLEASE don't take it personally if I don't recognize you--I am SO bad at that!!!)
Anyway, with all that craziness I naturally won't have time to blog. But I promise an update--hopefully with photos--as soon as I'm back (and recovered from the chaos). And I'll try to tweet/FB updates throughout the week so keep an eye out for those.
