Happy Belated Father’s Day to all the dads out there! Father’s Day here was kind of quiet – we went to see a movie, Tag, then grilled out. Only one son was home – the other was looking at new apartments, since his lease expires at the end of July and he has his ‘real world’ job now. Tag was a pretty good movie. Hubby and I didn’t think it was quite as good as the reviews are indicating, but still a fun, popcorn-type of flick. And anything with Jeremy Renner is just a bonus in my book.
I met some nice people at the book signing, but didn’t sell many books. Spoke with several teens and gave out some swag, then talked with an engineer about why I write and read YA books, and how he absolutely needed to watch Inception. He walked out with a video of the movie. Also discussed theories on what will happen in the next Avengers movie with a fellow Marvel fan – always enjoy doing that.
Now for some more shameless self promotion! I was interviewed over at YA Books Central, and they’re also hosting a giveaway for The Gemini Connection. If you’re a YA author or reader, this is a fantastic site for keeping up to date with all the new releases, read or write reviews, and they offer tons of giveaways. I highly recommend checking it out.
An excerpt of Sarah was featured yesterday on author D.G. Driver’s A Summer of Ghosts series. Her new novel, Lost on the Water, A Ghost Story, will be released July 17th and I can’t wait to read it! If you haven’t read her Juniper Sawfeather books, you’re missing out on an intelligent YA series dealing with important environmental issues.
Hope you all have a great week!
