Writing World: LA Times Festival of Books...here I come!!

Where will I be this Saturday and Sunday (April 21-22)??? Where else?...the LA Times Festival of Books, of course!! You have no idea how excited I am to be going. It's ridiculous. I'm making checklists, counting the hours...I even ordered a MASSIVE poster of Oppression (Children of the Gods #1) to display as part of our ZOVA Books booth (it's actually embarrassingly big...so big I may not even be able to use it...). I went a bit overboard, okay? What can I say? I'm SO excited. Honestly, I've never been before, but it sounds amazing. I can't believe I'm taking part in such a big-name event. I guess I'm still a bit of an amateur at this. I think I'm more excited to see the other authors and books there than I am to sell my own book. Just the idea of so many many many books and authors gathering together to bask in all the words and pages and writer-ness...ooooh my.
