YA Author event in Savannah, Georgia

Calling all Southern Belles....

You know how we're always complaining that there just aren't any bookish events in our area?*  Well, I am happy to report there is an awesome one coming to Savannah, Georgia in August.


Authors After Dark. *swoon*  Check out the website HERE for more information. It is going to be incredible. They have shindigs! Like real ones. I saw a Vampire Ball and a river boat cruise listed as some of the festivities. Eek! And did I mention it's in amazing Savannah, GA?

But that's not what has me all giddy with excitement. This year there is a YA Day (on a day I can actually break away from grown up world-- Saturday).YA Day is loaded down with kick butt YA authors. You may not recognize all of the names, but I promise you know the books. After looking them all up, I realized there are about 10 authors/books that I have read, so I am freaking out about the chance to meet them in the flesh.

If you live within driving distance of Savannah (and won't need a hotel for the night), you can attend YA Day for just $100 bucks at the door. That price gets you a goody bag with treats and books, plus a ticket to spend the day with ME and the fabulous authors we love. See you there!**






* By "in our area" I really mean near me in Florida. NOTHING ever happens in North Florida. All the good stuff is in South Florida, which is about 5 hours from me. So those events never count.

** If you're going we should totally make it a shin dig. I'm bringing my peeps, so you bring yours.

  1. Wahhhh! Why is Georgia SO FREAKING TALL? I live on the north side of Atlanta, so it would take me 4+ hours to get to Savannah. So close, yet so far away. Also, that's around the same time as Decatur Book Festival. I'll think about it, but odds are the distance will be prohibitive.

  2. Oh shoot! The Decatur book fest was on my list too. hmm... I need to plan this better. :) And I totally understand about "tall" states. Everything in FL is in South FL (miami area) and it would take me like 6 hours to get there. Insane.

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
