Readings and 500th post

Next week there are three readings in Manhattan that you all need to get to:

Tuesday, 6 March, 7PM (Doors open 6:30 PM)
Andrea Kail and Lauren McLaughlin
will be reading as part of The New York Review of Science Fiction Readings
Admission is free but if you want to support the series a $5 donation would be lovely
South Street Seaport Museum’s Melville Gallery
213 Water Street (near Beekman)

I don’t know Andrea Kail’s work but she shares a background in film and TV with Lauren and sounds most interesting indeed. Lauren’s work I do know. She’s awesome and her book Cycler is hilarious. It’s about a girl who turns into a boy once a month. It comes out from Random House in 2008 so this is your chance to say you knew all about Lauren way back when. Cycler‘s going to be a hit.

Wednesday, 7 March, 6-8PM
Me and these other fabulous YA authors will be reading our little hearts out:
Eireann Corrigan (Ordinary Ghosts)
Erin Downing (Prom Crashers)
Leslie Margolis (Price of Admission)
Justine Larbalestier (Magic’s Child)
Maryrose Wood (Why I Let My Hair Grow Out)
Daniel Ehrenhaft and Adrienne Maria Vrettos (reading from the 21 Proms anthology)
Tompkins Square branch
New York Public Library
331 E. 10th Street (cnr of Ave B)

That is a mighty fabulous lineup. How could you not venure out into the cold to see us? Also I may be handing out Magic or Madness trilogy bookmarks. If I remember to bring them that is. Are you sure you can go through life without such a bookmark? I didn’t think so.

Thursday, 8 March, 7-8:30PM
A reading and discussion with Yvette Christiansë author of Unconfessed.
A book signing reception will follow.
Labyrinth Books
536 West 112th Street
between Broadway and Amsterdam

I’ve spoken about Yvette’s work before. So I will be brief: She’s a genius. You do not want to miss this!

So that’s what I’ll be doing this week. I hope I get to see some of you lot at one of these events. I’ll be the one complaining about the cold.

Also this is my 500th post on this blog. Not bad, eh? If only writing novels were as easy as blogging . . . Here’s to another 500 posts!

PS My friend says many thanks for all the audio book suggestions. Do keep them coming.

    Seriously, I wish writing novels could be that easy! I’ll be at your signings in spirit, as it seems that I am for all the rest of the signings I wish I could go to, whoever the author is. Apparently publishers or…tour-organizer-people or whoever…don’t really care for bringing intelligent writer types to Kansas City. I think I should move somewhere more author-friendly.

    Most of the appearances I do are because I was invited. If Kansas City had a book festival or literary festival or something like that then the chances would improve of people going.

    Obviously I do more appearances in Sydney and NYC because I’m already there. But there are a lot of writers. I bet there are some right there in Kansas City.
