Texas, here I come!

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Sorry I've haven't blogged in a while--I got sick with a lung infection that, on top of everything else, knocked me out of commission.

But! My lungs are better AND my doctor thinks she knows what's wrong with me and I've been taking meds for that and feeling...sort of okay. It's quite nice to not have a fever ALL the time! And to not have to sleep for 13 hours a day!

However, I totally missed the boat on the LOL contest entries and so I declare EVERYONE who entered a winner, and I will be contacting all of you when I get back AND each of you will get not one, but TWO free YA novels as a thank you for your patience and understanding. And, of course, for making me LOL!!

Now, on to the super exciting part--I'm going to Texas!!

I'll be at the Houston Teen Book Convention this Saturday, April 9th, along with tons of other cool authors. It's totally free, and I'm going to be on a panel with Ellen Hopkins, Lauren Myacle, and Gail Giles!! How awesome is that??

And then, the next day, on Sunday the 10th, I'll be in Dallas, signing books at 2 PM at A Real Bookstore -- and not only will I be spilling secrets about my new book, Between Here and Forever, I'll buy $50 worth of young adult novels (your choice!) for the person who travels the farthest to come see me!

I'll also be at the Texas Library Association's annual conference on the 13th and 14th, so all you Texas Librarians, come by Author Aisle #9 on Wednesday, the 13th at 2 PM for free ARCs of Between Here and Forever. I'll also be around all day on the 14th--hurray! I look forward to meeting tons of Texas librarians and--I hope to see everyone else in Houston or Dallas (and remember, both Houston and Dallas? Free! And with free books for someone AND sneak peeks in Dallas!)

Texas, here I come--and I can't wait!!!

Glad to hear you're feeling better, and so excited to see you at TLA! (Please forgive me in advance if I go into full-blown fan-girl gushing when we meet). Holler if you need any scoop on anything Austin-y.

It's good to have you back and a complete relief that the doctor thinks he knows what is wrong with you. Hope you feel a lot better soon!

I can't tell you how glad I am to see this post and I'm even happier to hear that you're doing better. Wish I could come to Texas and meet you, though.

Boo to lung infections. I've had those and those are the worst of the worst. I'm glad you're feeling much, much better!

(P.S. I'm so jealous that you're going to Texas! It's so cold where I am! Is this spring or is this winter? The Midwest can't decide!)
