Baltimore Book Festival schedule this Friday

Hey all! Quick post before I go to bed, then get up for another looooong day of writing and editing before next Friday's deadline for Sekrit 2014 YA novel.

I'll be at the Baltimore Book Festival (which goes all weekend) but only on Friday (see aforementioned deadline). Both of my panels will be at the Maryland Romance Writers stage on the South Park.

12pm-1pm: Meet & Greet. Casual hangout with readers and authors. This is your best chance to get books signed! Ukazoo Books will be selling some of my titles (definitely the SHADE books, possibly others).

2pm-3pm: On Writing Young Adult Romance Series Authors talk about the challenges of writing engaging series and offer readings from their latest works. With Jennifer L. Armentrout, Claudia Gabel, Lea Nolan and Jeri Smith-Ready.

3pm-4pm: Craft & Character Lessons Authors offer advice, guidance and tricks of the trade in developing your writing craft and characterization. Authors include: Miranda Neville, Jeri Smith-Ready, Rebecca York and Laura Kaye.

Hope to see you there!
