I’m so excited for this upcoming fall and beyond! And speaking of excited, stop by and say hi over at Debbie Ridpath Ohi’s blog where I’m taking about writing the Gilded series and giving advice to aspiring authors.
This year I’ve taken time off from teaching to focus on writing and getting out more to meet fans. For a brief listing of events I’ll be at, you can always check my events page here. There are more conferences and festivals I’m planning on, but here’s a list of some of the events I’m already confirmed for with more specific details:
Aug. 2, 2014
Guess what’s happening down in South Florida this August? YA Mania! This event is going to be awesome with games and prizes, books (of course) plus Meredith McCardle whom I adore will be there! I can’t wait. So if you live in South Florida near Boca Raton, you need to come out for this event and say hi.
Oct. 16-18, 2014
I’m especially excited about this week since my fellow Skyscape friends (Jessie Humphries, Meredith McCardle, and Lori Lee) and I will not only be at the festival, but we’ll be touring around and doing school visits in nearby cities including Salt Lake City! If you wish for us to come visit your school for free, email me on my contact page here.
SCBWI Florida Miami Conference
I’ve been asked to be on the First Books Panel at the Florida Miami Conference. This has been a dream of mine ever since I first started taking this writing thing seriously. It’s a great conference to attend with not only amazing editors, agents, and authors, but it’s fun.
Feb. 5-8, 2015
Coastal Magic is a urban fantasy and paranormal romance focused convention in Daytona Beach, FL. There will be panels, discussions, meet and greets, and ‘supernatural’ inspired activities. Here’s the link to the featured author page. I hope you’ll come join us at the beach!
Congrats on the many events. Too far south for me to attend, but I hope TONS of people show up!
