Houston Teen Book Con Recap

Houston Teen Book Con was amazing! Bravo to the ladies of Blue Willow Bookshop who, as always, do such a fine and heroic job of organizing, arranging, cheerleading. If you have never been to Blue Willow in Houston, you need to go when you are in Houston. They are a world-class indie bookstore and owner Valerie Koehler is a force of nature, as is her intrepid assistant Cathy Berner and the rest of the staff.

(I have a huge love for so many indie bookstores, including Murder by the Book and Brazos here in Houston and so many others around the state and country. But more on that at another time)

For now, let me say that it was a great day! Not only did I get to hang out with authors I adore and authors I wanted to meet but I got to meet thousands (really!) of teen and adult readers and talk about books and writing and FINDING PARIS, which will be here on 4/21. Because of the generosity of Harper Collins, PARIS was available exclusively at Teen Book Con this past Saturday, which was enormously exciting! So if you were there, you got to buy it before anyone else!

A few pictures:
