harrisburg book festival

I’ll be at the Harrisburg Book Festival Saturday, March 29 in Harrisburg, Pa., talking YA with authors Tiffany Schmidt (BRIGHT BEFORE SUNRISE, SEND ME A SIGN) and Jessica Spotswood (BORN WICKED, STAR CURSED). Midtown Scholar Bookstore, 2–4pm. Hope to see you there! Some books will be available for signing or bring your own, or pick up a free bookmark or bookplate!

Updated! — I just learned that tomorrow’s panel will be televised! The Pennsylvania Cable Network will be recording the event for a future series about PA Book Festivals, and it will be streamed live on the internet (if the internet cooperates) at http://pcntv.com/2014/03/28/2014-harrisburg-book-festival/. So, that’s not terrifying at all. Tomorrow, 2 – 3 pm!

ALA Midwinter

ala14-logoI should probably mention that I’m going to be at the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia this weekend! Seemed like I should attend, since it’s in my own city and all; however, I’m keeping a somewhat low profile, because I have a big deadline looming on Monday.*

So if you’re attending ALA too and would like to see me, your best bet is to drop by the SFWA table in the Exhibit Hall (Booth #409) on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. I’ll be there to answer your questions about SFWA from 11–12, then signing…things…from 12–1. (My books won’t be available for sale there, as far as I know, but you can bring copies — and I’m happy to sign free bookmarks and book plates, while supplies last.)

Also, I put together a short guide on stuff to do in Philly, things to see, and some restaurants I like near the convention for SFWA members, but thought it might be useful to a broader audience too. If you want it, download it here (PDF). It is not fancy.

See you at ALA?

*If anyone wants to meet up to write with me near the convention, let me know. I’ll be there all day Saturday and probably Sunday morning.

signings of the apocalypse

I had a fantastic, authorly day in NYC yesterday that was not hampered at all by several poor transit decisions on my part. (Uh, if anyone wants an unlimited Metrocard good through 12/12/12, let me know, and I’ll mail it to you!) The more time I spend away from New York, the less competent I feel whenever I visit it…

The highlight of the trip, of course, was reading at Books of Wonder, my favorite book store in Manhattan. I’ve been going to readings and signings there for six or seven years, and once I began writing Fair Coin I hoped I would have my chance there one day. So I felt very lucky to be sitting up there with Colleen Clayton, Tiffany Schmidt, and Amy McNamara, with so many of our friends and people who love reading and publishing YA fiction on the other side of the table. Plus, mini-cupcakes! Many thanks to Peter, Scott, Allison, Alice, Corinne, and everyone at the store for their warm welcome!

The event had a nice turnout, the readings went well, I sold and signed some books, and it was great to catch up with friends from NY and beyond. I also had fun meeting up with my JABberwocky agents at their new(ish) office and touring book stores in the city with Tiffany. We hit pretty much every Barnes & Noble in Manhattan and signed our stock there, so if you’re looking for copies of her book, Send Me a Sign, or Quantum Coin, here’s where you can find them. They make great gifts! :)

Books of Wonder
18 W. 18th Street
212-989-3270
(They will also ship signed copies of Quantum Coin if you don’t live in NYC or otherwise can’t get to the store. Here’s the buy link!)

Barnes & Noble:

Union Square
33 East 17th Street

Fifth Ave
555 Fifth Avenue (46th St & Fifth)

Citigroup Center
160 E. 54th Street (near Lexington)

Tribeca
97 Warren Street

82nd & Broadway
2289 Broadway

86th & Lexington Ave
150 East 86th Street

The only B&N we didn’t make it to in Manhattan is the Greenwich Village store, which unfortunately is closing at the end of this month :(

And if you’ve purchased Fair Coin and/or Quantum Coin as a gift for someone or yourself, you can also request free, signed bookplates by e-mailing me at me [at] ecmyers [dot] net with your name, how you would like it personalized, and your mailing address. But if you want them in time for an impending holiday or the end of days, you should e-mail me soon!

have sharpie, will travel

See this picture? Not only is it proof that I’m a huge dork who owns a rare Snarf plush, but it displays my shiny “Pro” badge for the upcoming New York Comic Con! And that means that I’ll be at the Javits Center in New York this Friday, Oct. 12 through Sunday, Oct. 14… with more than 100,000 other people.

Okay, that’s a bit intimidating. This is my first Comic Con actually, because I’ve always been a bit apprehensive about attending a convention with so many guests crammed into a relatively small space. But I survived Dragon*Con this summer, and I’ll have lots of friends around to hang out with, so I’m giving it a go. Plus, this year I have not just one, but two novels out, and I was fortunate enough to be scheduled for an autographing session at the convention!

So, if you’re looking to snag one of the very first in-the-wild copies of my new book, Quantum Coin, or its prequel, Fair Coin, and get them signed and inscribed by me, this is where and when this can happen:

WHEN: Friday, Oct. 12 from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.
WHERE: Autographing Table 3 (at the back of Hall 1B on the first floor of the convention center)
COST: Free!

Barnes & Noble will be selling copies of Fair Coin and Quantum Coin at the con (I understand you can find them at the Barnes & Noble Pavilion, Exhibitor Booth #1112). You can also bring your own books from home, or if you don’t have a book, I will be happy to sign bookmarks, notebooks, Kindles, Nooks, scraps of paper, and other surfaces. If you miss my signing slot, I’ll be wandering around the rest of the convention and probably tweeting (if I can get a signal), so you can try to track me down later as well.

I look forward to seeing you there!
