I'm packing up to head up to Pasco, Washington! Any of you live near there?
I'll be participating in the 2011 Cavalcade of Authors , along with authors Lisa Schroeder, Alane Ferguson, Kimberly Derting, Justina Chen, Mary Jane Beaufrand, David Patneaude, Terry Trueman, Stephen Wallenfels, Rick Yancey, and Melissa De La Cruz! Wow. I wish I could go and listen to all of their workshops, except that I'll doing one of my own--but boy, the creative vibes will be swirling I'm sure, so I'll try to soak it all in by osmosis.
I'm also excited because students will be coming from all over the Tri-cities area to take part in the workshop. This is a voluntary event that students sign up for so I know I will be sharing those creative vibes with enthusiastic readers--if not the next generation of writers. I get goosebumps thinking about all the future books that are simmering in their minds waiting to be written.
Even though the workshop is a closed event, most of us authors will be signing the day before the conference, Thursday at 5:00 pm, at this Barnes & Noble. I hope you can come!
As much as I can I will post updates and pictures on Twitter and Facebook, so check there for pics and news.
