I have updated my March/ April events (I always add them here as soon I get the details of them) so I figured I'd better post them here. I've been enjoying my three months of hermit-like behavior over the winter but I'll confess my feet are itchy as well.

I would like to point out the awesomeness of folks that I am doing group events with here, including my peep Libba Bray, who was with me on This is Teen events last year, and John Corey Whaley, whose book I just read and adored, and David Levithan, my fearless editor at Scholastic.
Hopefully I'll see some of you folks there. If you do come out to see me, please let me know when I know you from the blog! I don't remember everybody's handles online, but I remember a lot . . . and I remember a lot of icons. It makes me feel cozy when I know I'm among blog readers.
Texas! Whoo! San Fran! Whoo! Actually, all of it: whoo!
