My First Google+ Hangout

So I am a total newbie to this Google+ stuff, but I was fortunate enough to be invited to be part of a Google+ hangout sponsored by Candlewick Press.

The theme of the hangout was "OTHER TIMES, OTHER WORLDS in YA LIT" and I was joined by some amazing other authors!

Here's the DL on it:

Other Times, Other Worlds in YA Lit Google+ Hangout On Air

Young adult authors Cynthia Leitich Smith (FERAL NIGHTS), P. J. Hoover (SOLSTICE), Janet Fox (SIRENS), Joy Preble (THE SWEET DEAD LIFE), and Candlewick Press editor and fellow YA author Deb Noyes (PLAGUE IN THE MIRROR) on a Google+ Hangout On Air. The authors partake in a dynamic discussion, exploring the challenges and joys of world-building, creating romantic elements, writing gender roles, and the parallel between fantasy and historical writing.
