Hey there! Wow, NTTBF was some amazingness. One of the best events I’ve ever been to. Annnnd festival month’s big finale is coming up this weekend — YALLWEST! If you’re there, come say hi. There will be copies of Double Down for sale and then officially all across the land! First week sales are very important, so if you can swing it you have my gratitude.
Here’s where I’ll be….
Friday night preview party:
- Humiliating myself at some point in a classic country duet with Kody Keplinger (who is one of the only people that could talk me into this)
- HEROES & VILLAINS (THE CHICKEN & THE EGG) (MG/YA): 11 a.m. Barnum: Which Comes First? Which Matters More? Good guys, bad guys, and so-bad-they’re-good guys. Moderated by Sabaa Tahir, with Victoria Aveyard, Leigh Bardugo, Gwenda Bond, Ransom Riggs, Kiersten White & Neal Shusterman
- THE PANEL CREATIVELY TITLED “THRILLERS” (YA): 2 p.m. Humanities Building: No mere mortal can resist the pull of a thriller, but it’s not easy to pull off. What makes a thriller fierce – or flop? Moderated by Gwenda Bond, with Alaya Dawn Johnson, Brendan Reichs, Brenna Yovanoff
- Signing: 3 p.m. (I’ll have some What Would Lois Lane Do? wristbands with me, but I’m running low so if you want one this is a good time to score it! Also possibly a few Girl in the Shadows ARCs…)
- Signing: 2 p.m.
- STORY/MAKERS: COMICS & ADAPTATIONS (MG/ YA): 3 p.m. Cafetorium: Make it your own – but how? Moderated by Lorraine Cink, with Gwenda Bond, Kami Garcia, Ryan North, Danielle Paige, Margaret Stohl
Then I will collapse. Haha, just kidding, then deadlines.
