I'm going to be in New York soon (yay!) and if you live in the area, I'll be around...

NYC Teen Author Carnival
May 28, 2009 4-6 PM at the Jefferson Market Branch Library (425 Avenue of the Americas at 10th St)
First, it's hosted by teen bloggers which is AWESOME, so you know I'll be there! There are going to be loads of other authors appearing as well *plus* there are going to be giveaways and games. What's not to love, right? You can read more about the event and see a list of all the authors who are attending at NYC Teen Author Carnival website

Elizabeth Public Library Author Appearance
June 1, 2009, starts at 4:30 PM (you can get directions to the Elizabeth Public Library here) I'll be talking a little bit about my books, answering questions, and maybe giving away a few books...

Teen Author Reading Night
June 3, 2009, starts at 6:00PM, and just like the Teen Author Carnival, this one is also held at the Jefferson Market Branch Library. I'll be reading from my new novel, Love You Hate You Miss You

I'll also be signing copies of Something, Maybe during BEA, so if you're there on Sunday, May 31st, come by booth 4052 from 12:00-12:30 and get a free, signed copy!

And...congrats go to Jessica, Kathleen Elizabeth, Madison, Ashley, and Meredith--who each won a free book in yesterday's book wish contest!

Finally, I have a great link to share:

Beth Bernobich on critiquing other writers--please, please, please read this if you're a writer or want to write. It's one of the most thoughtful posts about talking to other writers about their writing I've ever read. "Figure out, as best as you can, where that writer is on their journey. Hit them as hard as they can handle. Ultimately, it hurts you worse than it hurts them."
