A Book Party of Epic Proportions!

This past Saturday, I was honored to share the stage with fellow Austin author, Mari Mancusi, to celebrate the release of our recent young adult novels, SOLSTICE and SCORCHED. Austin peeps turned out in droves to help support us, and words can't express how grateful I am for such a wonderful community.

Mari and I and a couple of darling dragons, showcasing our books.


From L to R: Me, Austin author Nikki Loftin (The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy), Mari, a baby dragon, Austin author Cory Putman Oakes (The Veil), and a young goddess

A beautiful display of our books in the front of BookPeople...

...and in the teen section

And no party is complete without food and drinks.
Cupcakes from Austin cupcake shop Cupprimo.

Thank you all for the support! May you read many amazing books.
And thank you for the pictures, Cynthia Leitich Smith and Shelli Cornelison!

DRAGON & MYTHOLOGY Book Release Party

Mythology and Dragons and the Apocalypse!

Mari Mancusi and I are having a party to celebrate the release of our newest young adult books, and we want you to join in the fun!

Five Fun reasons to come:

1) SCORCHED is all about dragons and the apocalypse. Think Terminator with dragons.

2) SOLSTICE is all about mythology and the impending doom of global warming. Think summers in Austin, Texas with Greek gods.

3) Both books are set in Texas.

4) Both authors live in Austin.

5) It's going to be a ton of fun!

Oh, and did we forget to mention there will be costumes (which of course are not a requirement, but Mari and I will be decked all out). And snacks. And dragon and mythology trivia!

We would love to see you and the whole family there!
