Over Labor Day weekend, I attended my first-ever Dragon*Con, and I just have to say…WOW. Huge, amazing, such a sense of community. Loved it. Yes, there will be pics at the end of this post. Before I get to that, a few things:
More than Publicity debuted the music video for my Vamped series at Dragon*Con. You can view it here. It’s not quite final yet. As soon as it is, I’ll be blasting it out there, posing on my website…you name it. I think the song is addictive, which I can say because while I had input, all the credit goes to the amazing artist, Catriona, and to Shannon Aviles at MTP.
I was up yesterday on Mike Kabongo’s Agent Incite blog with “The Real: Lucienne Diver.” Hope my answers do justice to the spirit of fun inherent in the questions themselves.
Also yesterday, the amazing DEAR BULLY anthology released from HarperTeen. This is a collection of essays and other non-fiction formats written by 70 young adult authors about bullying, complete with an index of resources for those who need to know how to reach out. A portion of the proceeds to to the Stomp Out Bullying campaign. Yes, I’m a contributor to the anthology. Yes, this is a subject matter very near and dear to my heart.
