Me at BEA (& Heavenly Fire Launch)

To all you folks coming to Book Expo America in NYC, I’ll be signing copies of Afterworlds and otherwise entertaining you! For you non-BEA attenders, I’ll also be at the 92nd St Y for the launch of Cassandra Clare’s City of Heavenly Fire. And there’s also a surprise on Friday. (Scroll down.)

Here’s the whole week:

Pretty cool, huh? More still coming in the next week.

And finally, I’m still matching any and all contributions to the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program, the wing of Nano that assists teen novelists. The YWP is revamping their website, refreshing their already excellent (and free!) curriculum guides for schools who participate in Nano, and expanding their outreach to correctional facilities, halfway houses, and juvenile detention facilities.


Donate in the next month through this website, and Justine and I will match the first ten grand of your donations.

Tell your friends!

  1. Wait…wait…so people there get copies of Afterworlds? Signed copies of Afterworlds? Why do I have to live so far away from New York? 🙁

  2. I’m so sorry that I’m doing this on one of your blog posts, but I can’t find any other way to contact you and I’ve promised myself to hit up every author I respect and give them this request. My name is Kitty and my friends and I LOVE the Leviathan trilogy. Like, LOVE. I’m 18 years old and a writer myself, and a few days ago I independently published my novel, Persephone, via Amazon. I’ve heard horror stories about the publishing process and decided I’d rather put myself out there and be my own advocate. So, here I am, asking, no, more like begging, for you to take the time to read my novel if you can and/or will. I’ve been told repeatedly that it’s amazing, and I wouldn’t ask if I thought it’d be a waste of your time. Here’s the link:

    Thank you so very very much even if you don’t read it and again sorry for spamming your blog post.

  3. Okay, never before have I wished to live in New York. Oh, well. At least I’ll get a trailer soon…

  4. *sings*
    If only New York wasn’t so far away
    I promise the city won’t get in our way–

    Wait that song just stopped being relevant. Like one line of it was. Anyway. I love that song. AHem.

    *dies while all I can do is stare at my computer screen*
