Two Surprise Signings!

July 18th, 2010 (02:39 pm)

I am going to be teaching at two fantastic programs for teen science fiction and fantasy writers in the next two weeks: Alpha and Shared Worlds, so I am going to be doing two surprise signings!

The first one is this Tuesday, along with Tamora Pierce and Michael A. Arnzen.

It's at:

July 20th
Barnes & Noble on Rt. 30
Greensburg, PA

The second one is going to be with Carrie Ryan.

July 26th
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Hub City Bookshop
Spartanburg, SC

Hope to see you locals! I may read from RED GLOVE.

darn. Tamora Pierce? Carrie Ryan? YOU? Red Glove?(I feel bad saying I've never heard of Michael A. Arnzen, :(, but I haven't). Sounds so epic. Wish I lived there.

If it wasn't a monday (and I didn't live on the other side of the state) I would so be at the Spartanburg signing! Have fun! And if you ever come to the coastal side, let us know :)

No one ever comes to Pittsburgh! I can't believe I have to miss this. I think it's reason enough to miss class, right?

Strange --> Emily the Strange

You with Tamora Pierce again and in PA?! Rawr... there's no way I can make it and believe me, jumping on a plane was not going to stop me. Unfortunately in the middle of buying a house and the closing is next week and well, that requires my presence.

Yet another reminder of how stupid I was not to apply for Alpha. @^$^#&%#@*$

And it's probably a good thing I'm no where NEAR any of those areas. I'd probably only be able to stare at the sheer talent that's in the same room.

Hi Holly, I just wanted to ask if you are going to do any more spiderwick related books or anything soon? I love your books but I don't think I'm olde enough to read any of your teen books, if you know what I mean. Also if you ever see Tony can you show him the picture I drew for you once that I sent you and I said it wasn't my best and you said it was fantastic? My name is Natasha. Thanks x

Hey Holly, thanks for coming to Alpha. I will never forget the story of gender-bent Little Red Riding Hood.

That was one of the more memorable fairy tale retellings I've done with a class. :D

I'm sorry that I missed you! I moved not far from Greensburg! It would have been great to see you.

Re: !!

I do know Tammy! I met her at my very first signing ever, at Books of Wonder. She was super nice (and has always been since).
