So, here's what went down in New Orleans:
|I ate my FIRST EVER beignet. Holy delicious.|
|Seriously, are you drooling yet?|
|I got to hang with some of my favorite writing friends!|
Cristin Terrill, Alexandra Shostack, PJ Hoover,
Jessica Lee Anderson, & Carolina Valdez Miller
|And Shannon Messenger|
|And Tere Kirkland, whose NOLA knowledge was invaluable!|
|I also got to meet some AWESOME authors!|
Here, with Franny Billingsly, who wrote Chime, which I can NOT wait to read.
|With Lisa Desrochers, author of Personal Demons and|
the recently released Original Sin!
|With JAY ASHER! I heart his books. A lot.|
|With the HI-larious Jonathan Auxier, author of|
Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes
|With Kimberley Griffiths Little|
Author of many books including recently released
The Healing Spell
|With Elana Johnson (Possession), Jenny Han (The Summer I Turned Pretty),|
Jessi Kirby (Moonglass), and Corey Whaley (Where Things Come Back)
|I mean... Who could resist?|
|And then we ate some more beignets.|
Sike, not really.
It's not the end. Not yet.
Because first I have to give you a little heads up (twss) to visit again on Thursday for a giveaway in which I share some of my ALA spoils with you.
That you want.
Like, a lot.
