Pictures from the Chills and Thrills Book Tour

Happy Monday!  As you know, I spent the weekend on tour with some of the most fabulous YA authors in Texas :)  We signed in Austin and San Antonio (right before Rick Riordan signed, which was crazy!!!  I've never seen that many people in a bookstore in my life!!!!!!!!!!!!)  Anyway, I thought I'd post some pictures so you could see what we'd been up to :)

I'm the one doing the weird talking with her hands thing. Jordan Dane,
Jennifer Archer and Lara Chapman are to my left.  On my right are
Sophie Jordan and Tera Lynn Childs.
It was so much fun to get to talk to people about Tempest.  Some fabulous
Texas Bloggers showed up, along with a bunch of fans who love to read.

A candid shot of some of us right before the signing.  I'm not
sure what Sophie was doing, but I wanted to make sure I posted
a pick with the beautiful, talented and very pregnant Mari Mancusi.

A photo of some of the books and swag going around the tour--
isn't Tempest pretty, up at the top?

Anyway, that's how I spent my weekend (well, that and writing my Pandora YA).  We'll be in Dallas/Fort Worth next weekend at A Real Bookstore in Plano (Dallas) on Saturday and Barnes and Noble in Hurst, TX (Fortworth) on Sunday.  If you live in the area, I'd love to see you!

Have a great week :)
