These past few weeks there has been one literary thing after another! Which I love!
First off there was the ReaderGirlz Teen Book Drop. I dropped a few YA novels including my own First Day on Earth at the wee library in my neighborhood. Look how tiny and cute it is. Adorable. It’s near a High School, so I think that those books will find great readers.
Then it was my favorite book festival of all time: The Los Angeles Festival of Books!
I hung out mostly at the YA Stage where I moderated two panels and was on one panel.
That night was the LAPL Book Bash at the LAPL Central Library. This year I was a honorary hostess which made me feel very fancy.
Then it was World Book Night! So I sat at Intelligentsia Cafe and I handed out Willa Cather’s My Antonia. The weird thing is that people are so surprised that the book is free. They mostly thought that I was hocking my own self published novel. Yeah. I wish I wrote My Antonia!
Then this past weekend a bunch of writer pals and I went to a secret cabin in the woods and we workshopped some short stories and first chapters based on the Milford Workshop rules. It was magical.
Here I am. The smallest of the bunch.
