I decided to get a MySpace account, mainly because that’s where many tech-savvy teens hang out and if I want them to know about our books, that’s a good place to be. We’ve also opened a Mirrorstone profile, but it’s still not updated beyond the very basic of basic profiles yet. July has been crazy busy here, what with vacations and trade shows (my senior editor and I haven’t seen each other for a good three weeks, then she’ll return to the office Monday and I’ll leave for Comic-Con on Tuesday–whew!), so that’s been put to the backburner while we work on just getting the most important things done.
But if you’re on MySpace, go ahead and friend me (also slwhitman there) or Mirrorstone. Eventually we’ll get things up and running, and you’ll have a head start. 🙂
Speaking of Comic-Con, I’ll be working retail in the Wizards of the Coast booth. I’ll try to arrange some time to walk around on the floor, but that won’t be my main purpose in being there. So if you’re going to be there, stop by the Wizards booth and say hi. Hopefully, I’ll be able to do lunch or dinner with peopl
e sometime. If nothing else, I do plan on going to the Holly Black/Tony DiTerlizzi/Matt Forbeck panel (Matt writes Mirrorstone’s Knights of the Silver Dragon books). The details on that:
Panel: 11:30-12:30, Room 1B
SIGNING: 12:30 – 1:30 Table #AA3
Competing for the Young Adult Mind with Words and Pictures:
Panelists co-creators of The Spiderwick Chronicles, Holly Black (Valiant) & Tony DiTerlizzi (G is for One Gzonk), Matt Forbeck (Knights of the Silver Dragon), Anne Ursu (The Shadow Thieves), Ahmet Zappa (The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless), Shane Berryhill ( Chance Fortune and the Outlaws ) and Tim Eldred (Grease Monkey).
