See you at B&N’s B-Fest!

I’m excited to be participating in B-Fest, Barnes & Noble’s first national teen book festival this weekend! I’ll be back in Philadelphia at the Rittenhouse Square Barnes & Noble at 1805 Walnut Street on Sunday, June 12 at 2:00 p.m.

I’m appearing as part of Adaptive Studios’ B-Creative story development workshop, talking about my writing process for the Silence of Six series. We’ll be giving away ARCs of my new book, Against All Silence, and of course I’m happy to sign copies of the first book, which is now out in paperback.

I hope to see you there!

coming to a city near you! (if you’re near Boston, NYC, or Philly)

I tease some of my friends about them not promoting their upcoming events, and here I am waiting until the last minute to post about one of my own. But hopefully it isn’t too late! I will be visiting three of my favorite cities in June, and perhaps if you live near one of these venues, you will come visit me?

appreciating educators

I would not be the person and writer I am today if not for the teachers and librarians in my life who encouraged me to read and write, introduced me to classic literature and showed me how to deconstruct it, and taught me all the important nuances of comma placement. So I’m delighted to be one of eight children’s authors participating in an upcoming educator appreciation reception in my area to celebrate B&N’s Spring Educator Appreciation Week (April 14-22):

WHEN: Wednesday, April 18 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
WHERE: Barnes & Noble Exton
301 Main Street
Exton, PA 19341
610-524-0103

There will be discounts, contests, and giveaways, as well as two special presentations:

5:00 p.m. – K.M. Walton: How to Get Your Students to Write Like They Mean It
5:30 p.m. – Beth Kephart: Story Topics That Involve the Whole Class at the Same Time

Followed by a mega signing with eight area authors:

Monica Carnesi – LITTLE DOG LOST (picture book)
Ame Dyckman – BOY + BOT (picture book, illustrated by Dan Yaccarino)
Amy Garvey – COLD KISS (YA)
Beth Kephart – UNDERCOVER, HOUSE OF DANCE, NOTHING BUT GHOSTS, THE HEART IS NOT A SIZE, DANGEROUS NEIGHBORS, YOU ARE MY ONLY (YA)
Elisa Ludwig – PRETTY CROOKED (YA)
E.C. Myers – FAIR COIN (YA)
Dianne K. Salerni – WE HEAR THE DEAD (YA)
K.M. Walton – CRACKED (YA)

So, if you know any teachers, please let them know about this exciting event!

All thanks to fellow Apocalypsie K.M. Walton and Stephanie, the community relations manager at B&N Exton, for putting this whole thing together. I’m looking forward to meeting many other authors and educators!
