Here in town this week is the Texas Library Association Annual Conference! Check out Austin SCBWI members who are attending.
This weekend is The YA A to Z Conference: Everything You Need to Know About Writing for the Young-Adult Market, sponsored by the Writers' League of Texas, at the Hyatt Regency Austin (208 Barton Springs Road). I'll be interviewing Cinda Chima and on a panel with Bethany Hegedus discussing "tween" fiction!
And I can't believe I haven't mentioned it before, but Cyn's Tantalize was named a Top Ten Popular Paperback for 2011 by the American Library Association!
Thanks to Dinosaur Tracking Blog: Where Paleontology Meets Pop Culture (one of the Smithsonian's blogs) for the shout out on my Writers and Dinosaurs series.
