Library Appearance

I've been invited to participate in a YA event at the Groton Public Library in Connecticut. It sounds like a fun time, and there will be a number of other YA authors there. Here are the details:

Young Adult Author Evening

Thursday April 17, 2008
7:00 PM until 9:00 PM

Appreciate Teen Literature and Meet local authors who will share their books and writing experience. Scheduled to appear: E.M. Alexander: DEATH AT DEACON POND, MJ Allaire: The Denicalis Dragon Chronicles: DRAGON'S BLOOD, THE PRISONER, Lucas Baker: JESS AND ZOEY, Daniella Brodsky: ONE TRICK PONY, Libby Koponen: BLOW OUT THE MOON and Daniel Waters: the upcoming GENERATION DEAD. Copies of the books will be available for sale and autographs.

I don't think I will have books for sale or to autograph, as Generation Dead isn't officially out until May 6, so my plan is to bring my last remaining arc and wave it around over my head so everyone can see what a great cover it is. Bring money anyway, because the books from the other authors who are participating sound wonderful!

BTW, I love the Groton Public Library. I think it is one of the best libraries in SE Connecticut. I wrote much of Generation Dead there on my lunch breaks (no, you can't eat in the library--I scarfed my lunch in the parking lot), and it was the only place around where I could find the copy of Publishers' Weekly that announced my book deal (yes, I had to see it in print, being the vain, callow man that I am).

Hope to see you there!

Well I may have to stop in and say hello. I would say I am a big fan but that is all to Misery "#1" fan creepy so I won't.

No hobblings!

Take care,

Hi! I was just posting about the Groton Public Library event and I stumbled on your blog.

Your book sounds right up my alley. I look forward to meeting you at the library on the 17th!

Hello, E.M.!

Thanks for your post, it should be a fun event--will be a little strange for me as I've never spoken to/signed for paying customers. If I faint, will you cover for me?

Take care,

E.M. Alexander is the author of the YA book DEATH AT DEACON POND, which has gotten fabulous reviews and sounds amazing, She will be signing at the Groton library on the 17th.

Absolutely. I'll work your fainting spell into a pitch for the book.

Seriously, you'll do fantastic! I'm excited to hear more about your book. It sounds great.
