This Author Thing is Fun

It was a very busy week last week, with The Shifter release and two book signing events. A ton of fun though, and I got to meet so any great folks who love books and writing as much as I do.

Last Wednesday, I did my very first book store signing at the Alpharetta, GA Barnes & Noble, and it went great. B&N folks Suzanne and Keith were so nice and helpful, and really made me feel welcome. I'll admit, I was pretty nervous at first, but with so many friends and smiling faces looking back at me, it was hard to stay nervous for long.

Then on Saturday, I zipped down to Fox Tale Book Shoppe in Woodstock, GA for a young writer's workshop. Owners Ellen and Karen were great (Didn't get to meet Jackey) and the store is adorable (so is Woodstock). I got to do a writer's workshop this event and work with teens and tweens this time around (and a few adults who snuck in), and it was fun helping them develop their stories and answer questions about writing and publishing. I hope you'll see me back there before too long.

I've got a week or so off before I'm back at the next event, an all-day school visit at Otwell Middle School. I'm really looking forward to it!

I'll continue to keep you posted on what's going on, even if I have to stop and catch my breath first!


  1. I just finished (bookstore was late getting copies) and I just wanted to let you know how much I loved it. In time, I think it's going to rank amoung the great MG fantasy series.

  2. Aw, thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
