Updates: Author Event with Schwab, Schmidt & Gaughen
Kel Friday, March 21, 2014If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen the photos I posted from this Tuesday's author event at Children's Book World. Put concisely, it was awesome! Victoria Schwab, Tiffany Schmidt and A.C. Gaughen were thoughtful, entertaining and just a little bit silly. I had tons of fun!
I laughed as A.C. Gaughen described Scarlet's role in the writing, dragging her along and forcing her to write the hard stuff. I was amazed by Tiffany's ability to write scenes from all different points in the story, non-linearly, while drafting. And I was intrigued by Victoria's explanation of why she used her initials on her new adult book, Vicious.
Horribly, I haven't read any of their books. But I trimmed back the budget last month and took two semi-sleepless dogsittng gigs this month, so I splurged and got signed copies.
If you get a chance, events featuring any or all of these authors are highly recommended. I can't wait to read their work having met them!
That's all for this week. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I'm still getting my head back together now that the dogsitting rush is over. Thanks for stopping by and we'll return to our normal posting schedule next week. :)
