Looks like the site is back up! Knock wood it stays that way–I feel terrible for the typepad staff and hope they have vanquished the evil DDoS villains once and for all.
ANYWAY, just dropping by for a quick note to say that I'll be at the Southern Kentucky Book Fest this Saturday, and if you're there you should come say hello and I'll also happily sign books for you. Here's the details:
April 26 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.: Southern Ky. Book Fest at the Knicely Conference Center in Bowling Green, Ky.
– Panel at noon in the auditorium: YA Fantasy/Paranormal: Gwenda Bond, Kelly Creagh, Bethany Griffin, Julie Kagawa, CJ Redwine
Should be a fun time. And then Courtney Stevens and I will caravan through the mountains to the annual wondrousness that is the Bat Cave retreat, where we will workshop and eat delicious food and gossip and hot tub and be generally merry. And where I will be holing up a few hours a day to work on my revision of Secret Project, because deadlines wait for no hot tub. Or something.
And if you're local, you should come out to Joseph-Beth tonight at 7 p.m. and see the fabulous Ann VanderMeer talk about the Time Traveler's Almanac. We'll be there with figurative bells on–and Christopher will have just passed his thesis defense (it's at high noon, but I'm calling it early!).
Lastly! Since the site's been up and down, just in case you missed it:
- Cover reveal for GIRL ON A WIRE! Which will be out October 1. (I got a peek at the full jacket design yesterday, and will share when I can. It is also LOVELY. Basically, I am pinching myself–I'm so proud of this book and so grateful that I've gotten to work with such an amazing team on it. I hope you guys like it.)
- And extras from my recent LA Times interview with John Green.
