Ten days in Texas

Today we leave for San Antonio where we’ll be attending the Texas Library Association annual conference. I’m dead excited. We went to the ALA conference last year and it was fabulous. I met so many cool librarians and student librarians and writers and publishing people I thought my head would explode. Talk about over-stimulation! I look forward to more of it.

Unfortunately, we won’t be doing any public signings in San Antonio. So if you’re not signed up for TLA we won’t get to meet you. Sorry!

Our one public appearance of the trip will be in Austin:

Monday, 16 April 2007, 7PM
Justine Larbalestier & Scott Westerfeld
Book People
603 N. Lamar (at Sixth)
Austin, Texas

This Texas trip is also a chance for us to catch up with Scott’s family—especially his wonderful dad, who we haven’t seen in ages—which is why we’re doing so few appearances. It was too hard to do signings and family visiting. Maybe next time.

If you’re in Austin come see us at Book People I hear it’s one of the best book shops around.

And so you don’t miss me too much while I’m gone, Jennifer Laughran of Books Inc and Not Your Mother’s Book Club fame kindly interviewed me. She asked me some of the smartest questions I’ve ever been asked. Yay Jennifer!

    That’s it. Go and leave me, why don’t you.

    Hey, you know what they’re also having in San Antonio this weekend? A UNICORN LOVERS CONVENTION.

    Ally: congratulations!

    Maureen: Do you want to be banned from this blog?

    Yay! You’re coming to Austin! We’ll be cheering you on from the audience. (This is Jo from the YA listserv, btw).

    I hate unicorns, of course. I am here in London for the zombie convention. I’m on Team Z.

    I will still miss reading your daily updates, Justine! I wish I could meet you and Scott in Texas…no one ever comes to Kansas. (Who would want to come to Kansas anyway? I’m trying to get OUT of it myself. ;))
