Book Mini-tour in the USA!
Internets, or that part of it which lives in various parts of the USA, would you like to meet me? Would you like me to chat with you and tell you things and maybe sign any books you have with you?
They don’t actually have to be my books. I once signed a copy of Sarah Rees Brennan’s The Demon’s Covenant with my name. I believe the salutation was, “Dear [Reader], I wrote this book. Happy reading!”
But in case you would like me to sign the books that I wrote, I can do that too.
Yes, it’s mini-tour time!

Town and Country/San Diego: Autograph Session
Saturday, Oct. 29: Noon
Pacific 1: I Believe That Children Are the Future
How do we convert YA fantasy readers into adult fantasy readers? What books will they read after Harry Potter, and how do we get them to want them? Using fantasy as an educational tool as a means of reaching more potential readers.
Cornelia Funke, Karen Healey, Marlene Perez (M), Tamora Pierce, Cindy Pon
(Chances that this panel will accurately follow that description: probably fairly low. Approaching YA as a gateway drug to Real Fantasy is not usually the chief focus of YA fantasy writers, so we may well be rebellious. I certainly intend to be.)
