Summer Events

June 18th, 2018

Well, summer is here which means that SUMMER BOOK FESTIVAL/CONFERENCE SEASON IS HERE!

I’m lucky enough to have been asked to attend the American Library Association Annual Conference and Exhibition in New Orleans this week (where the guest of honor is Michelle Obama. I’m dying – DYING – of excitement).

Oh, but wait. What will I be promoting at #alaac18? Um, only my new graphic novel from DC Zoom, Black Canary: Ignite!
Black Canary: Ignite won’t be out until October 2019, but this week at #alaac18 we’ll be handing out some cool free sample excerpts of the first chapter! I’ll also be on some panels with a few of the very fun authors for DC Zoom (middle grade) and DC Ink (young adult). Here’s where you can see me and/or maybe get a sampler (unfortunately these events are open only to registered attendees of #alaac18):

Wow, that is a crazy schedule! Especially since I’m used to doing nothing but sitting around writing all day (although this summer I signed up for Boot Camp at my gym so I’ve actually been working out a lot which has been good for stamina, but bad for my goal of avoiding sweating).

I know that some of you are bummed that none of the events above are open to the public. But never fear because in July, when I’m in Denver, CO for the Romance Writers of America convention, I’ll have TWO public signings in TWO days! I hope some of you can attend one or both!

“Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing

Time: 3:00-5:00PM MT

Sheraton Downtown Denver Hotel

  • This event is open to the public and is free of charge to attend.

  • You do not need to register in advance to attend this event as a fan.

  • Since this is a fundraiser event for literacy organizations, attendees will not be allowed to bring books from home into the event. Unlimited books may be purchased on site, however. Cash and major credit cards accepted.

 

I think I’ve also mentioned that in addition to Black Canary, I’ve been working on some contemporary women’s fiction/suspense/romance. I don’t really want to say anything more about that yet though because I always feel like if I talk too much about a project before I’m done working on it, I’ll put a curse on it, and it will never get done. THIS IS A REAL THING that I’m positive must happen to other creative people besides me!

Don’t forget that in August, the 4th book in the Princess Olivia, Notebooks of a Middle School Princess series will become available! Look for Royal Crown in stores (and online) everywhere on August 7. I’ll have more details on events for this book soon!

In the meantime, enjoy your summer, and I hope I see some of you in New Orleans and Denver!

More later.

Much love,

Meg
