It occurs to me that I should specifically note that I’ll be at ALA Chicago this weekend, in case you will be there and want to stop by the Lee & Low/Tu Books booth and say hi. This is the first time since I’ve joined Lee & Low that I’ll be at the conference. If you will be there, be sure to get in touch and let me know you’ll be looking for me, because I won’t be at the booth most of the time; rather, I’ll be out talking to people, attending meetings, and such. If you want to see me, let’s make an appointment to be sure we don’t miss each other!
Coming up, I’ll be in Hartford, Connecticut for ConnectiCon as well—where Tu Books will have a dealer’s room table, and I’ll be revamping my “Beyond Orcs and Elves” talk for the show. Three Tu Books authors will be there as well: Bryce Moore, Shana Mlawski, and Joseph Bruchac, who will also all be on panels. I’ll post their schedule as it comes closer and is finalized. My friend Brandon Sanderson will be the literary guest of honor, and he’ll be on at least one panel and possibly signing with Bryce Moore.
Over Labor Day weekend, if you’re going to be at DragonCon in Atlanta, let me know, because I’ll be there too! Tu Books will have a booth in the dealer’s room there for the first time! We’re really looking forward to it.
