We had an awesome lunch with a great group of librarians, and I told them the same story you've heard here on my blog of how I started writing. It was for my daughter, who's a total bookworm. She spent her lunch period in junior high in the library and her librarian directed her to many excellent YA books.
Five extra contest entries to the first person who can tell me what's wrong with this poster. (Update: Cynthia was close on her second guess and Jackson got it, so I'm giving them both the 5 bonus entries. Answer: There are two Personal Demons covers, but the one on the right was never a cover--ebook or otherwise. It was an early cover comp that was never used.)
I hung out before the luncheon with some other Tor authors, including the lovely Kiki Hamilton (The Fairie Ring), Cherie Priest (Boneshaker, etc) and Orson Scott Card (Enders Game, etc)
I met one of my favorite ladies, Katie Bartow, the founder of Mundie Moms.
And, I met my lovely agent sister, Nikki Loftin, who's The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy releases this summer from Razorbill!
I spoke on a panel with fabulous authors Stacey Kade, Jessica Warman and Charlie Higson, which I sadly don't have a picture of. A good time was had by all =)
