8 signed YA books from London’s 2016 YALC (with pretty UK covers!)

Last weekend we left Taiwan and headed to London for #yalc (London’s Young Adult Literature Conference, which was part of ComicCon). I got to see some young adult authors, some pro-wrestlers and about half the cast from Game of Thrones, which was awesome.

I also gave out 400 mini booklets I’d printed, which had the first four chapters or so of the four books I have on Amazon. So that was fun.young adult authors

Now we’re in Plovdiv, Bulgaria and it’s amazing… beautiful weather and ice cream every day (really good gelato) and roman ruins and history everywhere.



I’m catching up on work and fixing some of my platforms so that this fall I can focus on writing – I’d like to finish up each of the stories I’ve started so far, and hopefully put out a few more.

In the meantime, I’ve made this giveaway for you of books I got signed at YALC.

  • The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
