Monday's Musings

Don't forget that my first giveaway will be next Monday, Nov. 1.  The following Monday, I will be giving away an Advanced Reader Copy of The Girl Who Became a Beatle by Greg Taylor.  I recently received the ARC from MacMillan and have too many books to read right now, so I will pass this one on to one lucky winner.  The book does not come out until February, so you will be one of the first to have a copy.  Greg is also the author of Killer Pizza.

The Girl Who Became a Beatle

I will be in Albequerque, NM, Nov. 5-7 at the YALSA's Young Adult Literature Symposium.  There are over 35 Young Adult authors attending the conference so I am sure to come home with lots of swag!

Miami, Fl will be hosting a HUGE book festival Nov. 14-21.  If only I had the time, and money, to head that way for the weekend!!  There are hundreds of authors attending the festival.  If you live that way and plan to go, I would love to hear about it!

Lincoln Pierce, author of the Big Nate children's books will be at Blue Willow Bookshop on Wednesday of this week here in Houston.  If you would like a signed copy of his book, you can call the book shop and they will get one sent out to you.

Rachel Caine will be signing book at Murder By the Book in Houston on Tuesday.  She below for the information.  I can't make this one, so I will definitely be calling for her latest novel!

Tuesday, October 26, 6:30 p.m.
Rachel Caine
New York Times best-selling young adult author Rachel Caine will launch her national book tour for the latest Morganville Vampires novel, Ghost Town (NAL; $17.99), at Houston's Murder By The Book the book's on-sale date!
While developing a new system to maintain Morganville’s defenses, student Claire Danvers discovers a way to amplify vampire mental powers. Through this, she’s able to re-establish the field around this vampire-infested Texas college town that protects it from outsiders. But the new upgrades have an unexpected consequence: people inside the town begin to slowly forget who they are—even the vampires. Soon, the town’s little memory problem has turned into a full-on epidemic. Now Claire needs to figure out a way to pull the plug on her experiment—before she forgets how to save Morganville.

And finally, for those of you that need a little pick-me-up this last Monday in October....

I see my face in the mirror and go, 'I'm a Halloween costume? That's what they think of me?
