This weekend, I plan on totally nerding out. Some of my fav. authors will be appearing at the Austin Teen Book Festival, and though I went last year, I’m looking forward to meeting new peeps, and buying fresh-off-the-printer books. Since my own YA book won’t be out for another six months, I won’t be on a panel, but I will be there, handing out bookmarks and meeting (future) readers.

I’ll also be attending the Friday night dinner for authors and book bloggers. I hope you can make one or both events, and that if you do, you’ll swing by and say hello. I love chatting with fellow book nerds and nerdlets!

If you’d like to interview me for your blog on either Friday or Saturday, please send an email to with ATBF Interview in the subject line. We can choose a time and place to meet, and I’ll give up some juicy DANTE WALKER deets.

And now…for a super fun announcement:

THE COLLECTOR: A DANTE WALKER NOVEL finally has a firm release date and here it is:
