Have you ever gone? It's my first time and I'm excited and nervous! In case you're going to be there, here's my schedule:
Friday at 11 AM, I'm in a panel with fellow Class of 2K13ers with Veronica Roth.
There are already almost 400 people signed up for it, which is sorta freaking me out. Also, Veronica Roth (Did you hear Divergent is becoming a movie? Like, now? OMG) is moderating, which also sorta freaks me out. And also, I'll be stuffing almost 160 swag bags with classmates the night before. I might get a stuffing-sprain.
Friday from 4-7PM, I'll be at the Bookcellar for Demitria Lunetta's IN THE AFTER book release and Class of 2K13 book/swag signing.
I'll be reading a passage from CONTROL. I haven't decided which passage to pick. I might decide, oh, five minutes before. Because I'm indecisive like that.
Friday 7:30-9:30 I'm going to try to make it to the Chicagoland Kidlit Drinks Night/YA Highway/Stacked ALA13 party. Come if you can! I'll be the person in the corner passed out from sensory overload, not alcohol.
Saturday, I will be recovering and wandering aimlessly around ALA in a daze. If you see me, feel free to hand me coffee and snacks. I will not say no. Also, I'll probably be carrying around swag so ask and I'll be happy to give some out!
CONTROL arcs will be given out at the Penguin booth and I'm going to try to snap a picture!
Are you going to ALA? If so, let me know in the comments or email. I'd love to meet and say hi!
One last thing. So...there's this new New Adult author who wrote this fantastic,
hyper-awesome romance called SPIRAL.
It's such a great book, with depth, and heart, and intelligence, and epic amounts of romance.
The author is Mila Ferrera and if you'd be interested in being part of her upcoming blog tour (I'll be in it!) called "Always Do The Thing That Scares You" click here. :)
