Blogging from TLA!

Tip of the Day: Change your e-mail password regularly. I haven't changed it in a long time, and someone managed to hack into my account yesterday and sent spam to hundreds of my contacts. Not fun!!

Sorry I'm posting late today. I'm sure you'll understand when I say I had to hit the exhibit hall here at the Texas Library Association conference this morning, and snag a few more ARCs, which include LINGER by Maggie Stiefvater and TOUCH BLUE by Cynthia Lord. I got some yesterday too. Look - anyone know who wrote THIS book (which I got an ARC of!)

The conference has been fabulous. My panel with Sonya Sones and Ellen Hopkins went really well - we had a practically full room and it seats 550 people!! Texas librarians are so nice, and it's been great to spend time with fellow authors too. Last night I had a great time talking to Varian Johnson (SAVING MADDIE), Jay Asher (13 REASONS WHY), and Jandy Nelson (THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE) about writing, books, school visits, web sites, books, writing, readers, and lots more.

This afternoon I'm spending a half hour chatting with teens, who are coming in today to spend the day meeting authors, getting ARCs, going to book talk sessions, etc. What an awesome opportunity for those kids - so cool!

Okay, I must run - have to get these books shipped off to me back home. I may dash through the exhibit hall one last time and make sure I didn't miss any good ones. :)

louis vuitton bags will surely look good on just about anything, and can be used from day till night while on a little get together party. This Monogram Vernis is in blue galactic, pink and sunset orange colors, which are both striking and stylish looking. Each of Monogram Watercolor carries a tag of $855, which is somewhat low-priced for such Patent leather handbag.
