Thanks so much for all the lovely comments while I was gone! It was so much fun to come back to them!!
Tour was amazing.
And school visits? They are awesome. SO incredibly awesome. Teens are the absolute best demographic in the world to write for!! I only did school visits in Chicago this week, (more next week! Yay!!) but oh my goodness, the teenagers in Chicago are so great!!! I got FAN ART!!! Really good fan art!! (Unfortunately, my husband absconded with my phone tonight, so I will have to post pictures tomorrow.)
*Seeing my first floor display. The. Best!!
*All of the schools decorated for my visits!!
*Meeting fellow Debs, Kristin Walker and Kristina Springer! We got to hang out afterward and had a great time!! Thanks so much for coming, guys!!!
*Signings with more than ten people!! Yay!! The signing in Phoenix had about fifty. . . . course they were mostly family and friends, but that's okay.;) I didn't have any signings where I just read to the bookstore staff. I will call that a win!!
*Reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner on my flights. Whoa! This book is amazing!! (Sorry, not out till October. But worth the wait!! . . . you may see my name somewhere on the cover when it comes out. *wink*)
*Seeing people I met on my pre-pub tour!! Andrea, Becky, and Jan!! You rock!!
*Signing stock. LOTS of stock. My book!! It's real!!!
Man, I had such a good time. I am headed to Idaho tomorrow for a couple of days of school visits and a signing on Tuesday night at the Idaho Falls Barnes and Noble at the Grand Teton Mall. Starts at seven! Be there! (All the cool kids are doing it.;))
Also, if you live in the greater Salt Lake City area, I am having a launch mingle Thursday night at the King's English in Salt Lake City between 5:30 and 7:00 PM, followed by a reading and signing. Everyone is invited!! There will be cake and soda!! Seriously, you don't have to RSVP or anything; just come party with me!! *does the party dance* It's going to be way fun. Hope to see some of you there!!
