REMINDER: PA booksigning tomorrow featuring 4 YA authors!

Friday evening at 7pm, I'll be visiting a fabulous independent bookstore on the Philadelphia Main Line (where I went to college and where This Side of Salvation is set). Here are the deets:

April 18: 3 J's and a K Talk YA (panel, games, giveaways, Q and A, and booksigning)
Time: 7-9pm
Place: Children's Book World, Haverford, PA
Along with:
This is my FINAL planned appearance for 2014*. As much as I enjoy book events, I've decided to cut back on them to spend more time and energy on the two most important things in my life: my writing and my family (not necessarily in that order).

Last year my travel schedule was brutal, despite the fact that I didn't even have a book out in 2013. I said yes to every opportunity, met lots of wonderful readers and publishing people, and completely failed to gain traction on any new novels. (Let's face it: I don't do well with disruptions to my routine.)

I love meeting readers in person, but my hope is that you guys would rather I stay home writing new books for you! Thanks for understanding. You rock.

*Except for the literacy signing at the RWA National Conference (July 23, San Antonio)
