Tonight at 6:30 p.m. I’ll be at Big Blue Marble Bookstore in Philadelphia for Futures and Fairy Tales: A Kaleidoscope of Diverse Adventures with authors Claire Legrand, Sarah Fine, Sarah Raasch, Shveta Thakrar, and Julia Rios (co-editor of Kaleidoscope: Diverse YA Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories).
This event is a stop on the Futures and Fairy Tales book tour, and Claire and the Sarahs graciously agreed to team up with Kaleidoscope for one big night. I’m really looking forward to it! If you’re in the area, please come by. This is probably my last in-person event for 2014!
If you can’t make it, you can also catch me online tomorrow night during a Twitter chat with YA Books Central from 9 to 10 p.m. EST. We will be discussing my new book, The Silence of Six, giving away copies, and taking questions. Follow the hashtag #SilenceofSix to participate!
The fabulous Kate Tilton, friend to authors, invited me to participate in #K8chat, her weekly Twitter chat for people interested in publishing, writing, and reading. Find us on Twitter from 9 – 10 p.m. Eastern tonight (1/16)! We’ll be discussing writing workshops and critique groups and how constructive criticism can improve your writing.
To participate, just follow the hashtag #K8chat — and remember to include it in your Tweets so everyone can see it. You can also follow me (@ecmyers) and Kate (@K8Tilton) on Twitter.
Visit Kate’s blog for more details on tonight’s chat and her upcoming chats, every Thursday at 9 p.m.
A silly Gmail Chat with my friend Scott:
Scott: What if tomorrow wasn’t another day? What if tomorrow was a fish? What would the endoing to Gone With the Wind have been like?
me: I’ve never actually seen that movie.
Scott: Neither have I, but according Weird Al, the ending of the movie has a character saying “Tomorrow is another day”
me: If tomorrow is another day, and tomorrow never dies, and if you should die another day, then that makes you immortal.
Scott: I think you’re missing a step in your proof
me: Prove it.
Scott: p – Tomorrow, q – another day, r – never dies/immortal, s – you
Scott: p -> q, p -> r, therefore p -> r, s -> ~r and q
No further information can be derived
me: So… today is a good day to die?
