I'll bee at YALLFest and the Charleston Public Library this weekend!

I'm heading out tomorrow morning before dawn to Charleston for the big and fabulous YALLFfest Book Festival. Go here for the dozens of bestselling and your favorite YA authors and when they're speaking. 

The Young Adult Series Insiders that I helped found two years ago will have a booth at the Giant Book Signing Tent on King Street in Charleston, hosted by the fabulous Blue Bicycle Books. We've got giveaways and swag and chatting about books and YA authors so come visit us on Saturday anytime from 9-5 p.m.

And, I'm doing some super fun panels and parties on Friday and Sunday surrounding Yallfest. Come see us!

YA Series Insiders Book Party
What better way to wrap up a thrilling weekend of YA literature than with book dating, games, snacks, books and prizes, and a chance to meet and mingle with authors from YA books across a spectrum of genres. We’ll be serving up laughs and asking you to join in the conversations with and between the authors!
It's a thrill to be a part of the Young Adult writing world and to meet readers from all over the country.

A thousand thanks for reading and reviewing Forbidden as well as pre-ordering Book 2, Banished, which releases February 2nd!!!
