Oh yeah! This is how I spent my Tuesday night:
Q&A panel at Provo library with four YA authors.
Crit partner Katie talking with BLOOD RED ROAD author Moira Young:
Her novel has been optioned by Ridley Scott...super cool. And she writes for 7 hours a day in a dark room with ear plugs. And oh yeah, the room is down the street from her home in the back of a salon. Too funny.
Here I am with hilarious Elana Johnson, author of POSSESSION:
Elana writes behind her piano in a spot hidden from the front door (so no one can see the chaos). She blasts music on her headphones to drown out the kids when she's working. I love hearing about how other moms write.
And here is Becca Fitzpatrick, author of the HUSH HUSH saga.
She announced that there would be a fourth book in the series. I even came home with a signed poster of SILENCE complete with a sexy shirtless picture of Patch. Ooh la la. (Husband LOVED it, by the way :)
Michelle Hodkin, author of THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER:
There's been a lot of hype about this one in the YA world and I am excited to read it. Of course, its the first piece of fiction she's ever written, period. Jealous...
Fun fun girls night out!
