Answer: They are just some of the amazing bloggers and readers I met over the past days at the launch of my book, and on the Dark Days tour with Tahereh Mafi and Ellen Schreiber. And the author love! Ellen Hopkins (yes, THE Ellen Hopkins), Lisa Desrochers, YA Muses, Lia, Jackie, Nikki, Debra, Shannon, Kristen, Kiersten, Gretchen, Cory... Gahhh... You guys! Thank you for coming! I think I can speak for Tahereh and Ellen here: we were blown away by the support!
Thank you so much to Rakestraw Books (Danville), Books Inc. (San Francisco), Mysterious Galaxy (San Diego), and Changing Hands (Phoenix) for hosting us. Your bookstores are wonderful! Please reach out to the independent stores if you are interested in purchasing signed copies of our books!

If you were there and covered the event, I'd love it if you'd leave a link in the comments. And if you came out to see us and I didn't mention your name, let me know! And thank you.
Finally, to friends--old and new, family, mentors who came the event at Rakestraw Books, thank you, with all my heart, for being part of one of the best nights of my life!
