I just checked into my flight for tomorrow morning, because I am heading off to Minneapolis, Minnesota for KidLitCon on Saturday, an conference about children's authors and the blogging world. That I've already announced, I think. But I don't think I've mentioned that on Friday night, I will be holding a roundtable discussion and signing with my two critique partners, Brenna Yovanoff & Tessa Gratton. We'll be talking about what makes a critique group work, how we met, and taking audience questions. (And of course Brenna will be signing copies of THE REPLACEMENT and I'll be happy to sign any of my books).
So, details of that: Friday, October 22nd, 7 p.m. Merry Sisters of Fate at the Loft. Suite 200, Open Book, 1011 Washington Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55415 (612-215-2575)
And the other event I need to mention is the Halloween bash with the hilarious Jackson Pearce (SISTERS RED). We'll be at my favorite indie bookstore, Fountain Bookstore in Richmond, on Halloween, having a werewolf extravaganza. Not only will we be talking books, we'll be hosting a costume party. Winner gets a werewolf goodie bag which may or may not involve stuffed animals, werewolf books, Rilke, hand-drawn Shiver/ Linger paperdolls, or hatchets. Also, since it's Fountain Bookstore, home of Maggie-doodled books, I'll be doodling in everything I sign. And in case you needed any more convincing, there's also a ghost walk there in creepy-cool Shockoe Bottom. So you don't have to come for just us.
Details: Sunday, October 31st, 2-3 p.m. Halloween Werewolves with Maggie Stiefvater & Jackson Pearce. Fountain Bookstore/ Sam Miller's Restaurant. 1210 East Cary Street, Richmond, VA 23219-4118. (804) 788-1594. This IS a ticketed event ($8) - but if you buy a book there, it is $8 off the price of the book, so basically it's just the store's way of ensuring that you will buy a book at the event. And space is limited, so I'd book in advance.
And then, finally, some foreign covers. Collected into one place.
Dutch Edition of Lament
Indonesian Edition of Shiver
Serbian Edition of Lament
Serbian Edition of Ballad
Bulgarian Edition of Linger
Japanese Edition of Shiver
Latvian Edition of Ballad
Spanish edition of Lament (I think I
shared this before, but smaller)
Slovenian edition of Shiver
Slovakian edition of Shiver
Hungarian edition of Linger
Weird, yes? Now I'm going back to polishing my talk I'm giving at a conference on Sunday. I wrote it on the plane back from Frankfurt, and transcribing my notes is going to take me the rest of my life.
