October 15th through the 21st is National Teen Read Week. Many libraries and schools will be holding events, so check your area. I will be at the Crystal Coast Book Festival this weekend, participating as a YA author.
And after another weekend of book store appearances, I am convinced of one thing - optimism DOES sell and people DO need hope! I will not compromise my values, morals or beliefs just to sell a few extra copies. There's enough salacious material in the world!
