My Vicious Valentine

One of the display cubes
Last night was the panel for My Vicious Valentine: Spine-tingling YA Author Panel, featuring Jordan Dane, P.J. "Tricia" Hoover, Mari Mancusi, Rosemary Clement-Moore, Cynthia Leitich Smith, and L.A. Weatherly---moderated by Sean Petrie--at BookPeople!

A table was set with chocolate cake, heart-shaped cookies, dark chocolate Kisses, and dry red wine.   Questions by moderator Sean Petrie ran the gamut from writing process, e-books, future projects, and writing across gender.

The crowd's questions were equally fun -- fans wanted to know the backgrounds of the stories and thoughts on the nature of the graphic novel.

During the signings, I had a nice chat with some of the librarians from Bastrop, who were pleased to hear that parts of CHRONAL ENGINE are set in and near that town.  (Cyn and I are doing an event at the Bastrop Public Library this summer -- details to come).

Afterward, a group of us (Cyn, Sean Petrie, Jenny Moss, P.J. Hoover, Nikki Loftin, Samantha Clark, Lindsey Scheibe, Bethany Hegedus, Jordan Dane, Mari Mancusi, and Rosemary Clement-Moore) headed over to Frank & Angie's for a late dinner and a glass of wine or two.  Discussion ranged from TV shows (Buffy, Dr. Who, Supernatural, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica); books not written by any of us (Hunger Games, Dragon's Tooth, The Watch That Ends the Night, The Future of Us, The Fox Inheritance), and Texas's Old Three Hundred.
