The Teen Author Carnival in NYC THURSDAY May 28th!

Some very Awesome YA fans, those of the aptly named Five Awesome YA Fans ning, have put together quite a carnival of teen authors. So if you're in NYC this Thursday from 4-6pm, stop by the Jefferson Market Branch of the NY Public Library ( 425 Avenue of the Americas) and party with us! Who's on the guest list? See below. I can't tell you what the categories mean... I haven't found out myself (Though I'm glad to be a Caramel Apple). What I can tell you is this: It's going to be F-U-N. Come!

One of the many reasons I hope to move to NYC soon. *sighs* Sounds like such fun. Now I'm also craving funnel cakes which are my favs.

I just sent in my application to attend as an author. I hope I will be asked to attend because it sounds like a great time and a good way to get my book into the hands of young adults.

I will be signing my book at the New York Book Expo in my publisher's booth. That was one of your questions on the registration form so I wasn't sure if that information was conveyed.
