Bring YA to PA: PAYA 2011

I am excited to announce that the Second Annual Bring YA to PA festival is ON for Saturday, August 27th. Mark your calendars!

PAYA 2011 will be held in West Chester, Pennsylvania — just a little south of Philadelphia. Writing workshops with some of the authors (including me-yay!) will be held from 10am-12pm, with author signings beginning at noon. At present, at least 18 authors will be attending — and if it’s anything like last year, the Festival will be a magnet for YA book lovers and bloggers from multiple states.
Last year, I was thrilled to meet Aine and Christine — whom I had previously known only through their blogs — and I fan-girled over Kristi the Story Siren so much I could scarcely sign her book!
Be sure to check out the Bring YA to PA website, and while you’re there, you can read my guest post on why you can bring your horse to water, but shoving his head in the trough to make him drink won’t help your story at all!
Hope to see you in West Chester on 8/27!

  3. You will r-o-c-k at that conference! Hope you have fun with it. Your guest post about trying to force a character to act out of character was spot on. Thank you, ma’am.
