Comic Con NYC!

1. Guys. Guess who gets to be on a panel at Comic Con in NYC?

By far one of the coolest things to ever happen to me. I guess I should wait until after I go before I say that? Nope. Don't need to wait. Mark Hamill is going to be there. Jason Mamoa. Kim Harrison. Brandon Sanderson. Tahereh Mafi, whose SHATTER ME just shattered me, really... gah!!! I'm. So. Pumped!!!

2. Have you seen the book trailer for THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER? Amazing! That's how you do a book trailer. Congratulations to Michelle Hodkin, who is a great person & class act. I can't wait to read MARA next week!

3. Quotable Friday. This week, my husband's words from a few days ago. Spoken in one of many recent pep talks given to encourage me through the pressure of deadlines for one book, marketing demands for another. I thought this was quite smart (but don't tell him I said that.)

You can't teach experience.

Some things you have to just slog through and figure out on the fly. And there's a certain release in that. I don't know how to handle much of what doing. Learning as I go. Bungling about a little, but I'll figure it out. And so will you. Here's to learning as we go, everyone.

4. Finally, for no particular reason, I give you Ivan.


  1. If you wanted that notebook, it looks like Ivan won't be sharing it ;-)

  2. Yes, Tez. He is IN CHARGE, that's for sure.

  3. That's great about Comic Con--the first of many panels, I'm sure. And thanks for #3. Will. Keep. Going. (thanks for Ivan too, of course)

  4. Yes, PB. #3 is what it's all about! Thanks for stopping by.
