Before you read this, you should be-bop over to Carrie Harris's blog and read her Bookanista review of Texas Gothic. (There's another surprise for a fellow Bookanista as well.)
DFW TEEN WRITERS WORKSHOP
Staring Saturday, June 18, I'll be participating in the DFW Writer's Workshop Teen Workshop. (Boy, that sentence was redundant.) It will run Saturdays from June 18th to July 30, from 1pm to 3 pm, and cover all topics about writing, plus free writing time and critique opportunities. You can find out more and sign up by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. (I'll post more about this soon here.)
Saturday, June 11, Allen Texas
If you are in the metroplex, and you're looking for a fun event this weekend (or just looking for a place to wear your sparkly tiara), I will be at the Boas & Tiaras Reader Event in Allen, Texas, along with a WAY impressive list of authors, including:
Nalini Singh, Rachel Gibson, Julia Quinn, Vicki Lewis Thompson, Dianna Love, Dakota Cassidy, Michele Bardsley, Jaye Wells, Lorraine Heath, Nikki Duncan, Rachel Caine, Vicki Pettersson, Kay Thomas, and Lori Wilde. The Fabulous Candace Havens will emcee the event.
Tickets are $45 and include fancy tea, a private authors signing, book sales, plus door prizes, raffles baskets, as well as special interview with Nalini Singh. Book Sale proceeds and raffle ticket monies go to Plano Family Literacy Center.
Here's the site if you want tickets.
Saturday, June 25, Birmingham, AL
For a FREE event, I'll be in Birmingham, AL on Saturday, June 25, speaking at the Homewood Public Librarywith young adult authors Jennifer Echols, Rachel Moore Hawkins, Chandra Sparks Taylor, and R.A. Nelson.
The program starts at 1:30, and we will be signing books afterward. It's more of a "writing YA panel"--we'll be talking nuts and bolts and publishing. If that's interesting to you, or heck, even if you're just a reader who wants to come hear some FABULOUS authors, come and see us. (Event is put on by the Southern Magic RWA Chapter.)
Tuesday, June 28, New York, NY
I'll be participating in the giant, humongous annual RWA Literacy Signing at the RWA conference in NYC. The signing is completely open to the public and takes place at the Marriot in Times Square. Lots of details, including HUNDREDS of authors participating, here.
More soon, I promise!
