I had so much fun at DragonCon this year! It was a blast to reunite with some amazing folks who I only pretty much get to see once a year, and it was so much fun being on the panels LGBTQIA in YA, Magic and Worldbuilding, Somewhere Over The Rainbow and the Craft of Dystopia!
I remember my very first SDCC: I was overwhelmed, nervous, and just loved all the nerdery of it all. I walked the floors, went to panels, and waited for hours and hours in line to get a chance to see some of the creators who inspired me so much. This year I was invited as a guest to SDCC and it was such an amazing experience!
This was my first ever YALLWEST, and it was one jam-packed day full of amazing authors, readers and just so much fun. It was incredible getting to be invited as a guest on a few panels and getting to talk to so many amazing people. This was also the cover reveal of Not Your Villain and we had a little cover reveal boba party with Duet Books!
I’ve always loved the LA Times Festival of Books! The first time I went I was …nine years old. It was so cool, getting to see how many other people just loved books and I was so amazed at how many authors were there! I was pretty much this wide-eyed kid then and this year I got to live out my dream and be there as an author, just as wide-eyed.
Thank you so much to Barnes and Noble for inviting me to your Teen Book Festival to be on this amazing young adult panel with so many incredible authors! I had such a blast meeting people and signing books and being on this panel with Livia Blackburne, B.T. Gottfred, Michelle Gagnon, Jen Kelin, Ann Stampler, and Gretchen McNeil.
