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.

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. 

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
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.
