Happy Wednesday! So I've had the most awesome time the last few weeks, traveling to two different conferences and going to a book launch last night. I've had the chance to see so many wonderful writing friends and meet some new ones. I've got a few pictures too, so.... for your viewing pleasure...
Apocalypsies (A group of authors who are debuting in 2012) in the wild at Jennifer Shaw Wolf's launch party for BREAKING BEAUTIFUL. From left, Marissa Meyer, CINDER; Jennifer, Danny Marks, VELVETEEN, Megan Bostic, NEVER EIGHTEEN, and J. Anderson Coats, THE WICKED AND THE JUST.
Here's a shot of the Tor booth at TLA. (and awesome YA editor Melissa Frain.) My publisher, TOR TEEN, had a whole bunch of wonderful Tor authors there (Lisa DesRochers, Blake Charlton, Dom Testa, Cherie Priest, David Lubar and Orson Scott Card) so it was really fun to get to hang with that crowd for a bit.
MUNDIE MOMS (above) and the equally wonderful Maria Cari Soto of Cari's Book Blog (below.) Both of these ladies have been such a tremendous support to SO MANY authors, and I know I speak for many when I say we are so very grateful! There were also a lot of other fantastic bloggers and authors there (like Jen Bigheart, Steph Redwine, Lynne Kelly, Michelle Flores, Steph Pellegrin , Tillie...+++ sorry if I forgot your name!!) that I didn't get pictures with.
