win some books, why don’t you?
May 4th, 2011
I’m feeling terse this morning, so how about I bullet point pertinent facts?
- I’m back from California where I had a great time at the LA Times Festival of Books. Here is a cute photo of me, Margie Stohl, Cecil Caselluci and Robin Benway from said festival. I swear it looks like we could be in a sitcom. GrrlWriters. Please send script treatments my way.
- I also am back reading at A Great Good Place for Books in Oakland. You can read all about here on Ravenous Reader. But I also stole a picture of the Bay Area YA posse from Nancy for your viewing pleasure (that would be Daisy Whitney, Cheryl Herbsman, Nina LaCour, moi, Jandy Nelson).
- And now I’m home and it’s raining and I won’t even say how bummed I am, after surviving the winter we went through, to have this rain. Because no tornadoes have destroyed my apartment (they downed a bunch of trees here but that was last summer). I’m grumpy and I’m dealing with my grumpiness by giving away FIVE copies of the UK WHERE SHE WENT. The one with this pretty cover.
- All you have to do is respond with a note as to what you do when you’re grumpy to get ungrumpy. I will be taking notes. I’ll pick five winners by the end of the weekend. I’ll mail copies out when I get back from Florida (yo, Miami, Books & Books, Coral Gables, 5/12/ 6:30, be there and no rain this time, hear me!!!)
- Okay, game on.
- Bullet points over.
