There is so much stuff happening I can’t even begin to talk about it. But right here, right now, I’m going to try to scratch the surface by telling you about…
What is #YALaunch?
#YALaunch is a really big party that you are invited to! Okay, so it’s quite a bit more than that. It’s a party that I will physically be attending in Omaha, and you’ll be attending via your computer screen—asking questions, participating in panels, and winning free books!
What: #YAlaunch is a giant book party, with author panel discussions, games, & book giveaways.
Why: To celebrate the launch of two new YA novels, and to promote reading, literacy, and other great authors.
When: Monday November 10, 6-9pm (Central Standard Time)
Who: Anyone who enjoys books. The party is family-friendly.
Where: Online, live-streamed over video. Click here for the link to the live-stream. To receive updates and to be entered for door prizes, please RSVP here at the Facebook event. Chat on Twitter about the party on the hashtag #YAlaunch.
