A couple of events this month…if you’re in the southern NH/MA area, or in Orlando, FL, stop by!
On Sunday, July 25 from 2-4 pm I’ll be part of a panel discussion on children’s and YA fantasy at the Toadstool Bookshop in Milford, NH. It’s a great line-up of authors and books, including Ellen Booraem (The Unnameables), Chris Brodien-Jones (The Owl Keeper), Leah Cypess (Mistwood), Deva Fagan (Fortune’s Folly, The Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle), Angie Frazier (Everlasting), Kate Milford (The Boneshaker). For details, look here.
And on Wednesday, July 28, from 5:30-7:30 pm, I’ll be at a five hundred (yes, you read that number correctly) author booksigning at the Romance Writers of America National Conference at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort. From the RWA’s website:
The “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing has become one of the most popular events at RWA’s annual conference. More than 500 romance authors participate in this two-hour autographing event, and each year we raise thousands of dollars, which are donated to ProLiteracy Worldwide. Since 1990, RWA has donated more than $600,000 to literacy charities.
The 2010 “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing takes place on Wednesday, July 28, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Walt Disney World® Dolphin Resort, Pacific Exhibit Hall, in Orlando, Florida. This event is open to the public; there is no admittance charge. Since the proceeds from this event are donated to charity, we ask that you purchase books at the event instead of bringing your own books. (RWA accepts cash, check, or credit/debit cards for book purchases at the event.) If you do bring books, please limit yourself to one or two books and consider making a cash donation to the cause.

I hope to see some of you there!
