Compicpalooza 2017 Wrap-up

Houston’s largest comic event is now over! This was my second year as an attending author, and I had a total blast! I was on two panels, and one of them was this year’s first ever “YA Roundtable”. We all sat around (a suspiciously rectangular table) and talked about YA books. That was probably the fastest hour of my life, because when I talk about books, there’s never enough time! But I met some awesome people, some readers and some aspiring authors and I was happy to share my (questionably insightful) wisdom.

Then I was on the panel called Not Another Love Triangle – Tropes in YA Fiction. I had some amazing panelists with me:

Jennifer Yen 
Margo Bond Collins
Emily Evans
Mari Mancusi

Despite the Houston traffic, Comicpalooza is so much fun. Where else can you get free donuts, talk about YA books, eat nachos for lunch, and see Chuck Norris all in the same building?

See you next year, Comicpalooza!


Find me at these 2017 Book Events!

February is officially over! Can you believe it? I thought I’d share three events I’ll be attending this year. If you’re in the Houston or Tyler, TX area, I’d love to see you!

May 12-14: Houston Comicpalooza 

This will be my second year attending Comicpalooza as an author and I’m very excited for it! Last year I got to chat books and publishing with some amazing people, and I also met Norman Reedus, so yeah. It was a good weekend. This year, I’ll be on more YA writing themed panels, and I’ll have a couple copies of The Breakup Support Group to give away! Plus, uh yeah, there will be like mega huge celebrities there. But also me. I’ll be there, too.
