Seattle, Portland, Austin

Today I fly to Seattle, which could not possibly be as cold and wet as it is here in New York City. Surely not?

Here are my public events in Seattle:

Monday, 19 October, 4:00 pm
Mukilteo Public Library
4675 Harbour Pointe Blvd.
Mukilteo, WA

Monday, 19 October, 7:00 pm
UWash Bookstore
4326 University Way N.E.
Seattle, WA

Tuesday, 20 October, 7:00 pm
Third Place Books
17171 Bothell Way NE
Lake Forest Park, WA

Wednesday, 21 October, 7:00 pm
Barnes & Noble
19401 Alderwood Mall Parkway

Lynnwood, WA

That’s right, you Seattleites get four opportunities to listen to me blather on about Liar and answer any and all of your questions. I suspect Seattle is where I will finally tell the truth of what happens at the end of Liar. I know I’ve said I’d do it before but every single time someone in the audience begged me not to spoil the book for them.

Then I’m off to Portland where you can find me here:

Thursday, 22 October, 4:00 pm
A Children’s Place
4807 NE Fremont St

Portland, Oregon

or here:

Thursday, 22 October, 7:00 pm
Barnes & Noble
12000 SE 82nd Avenue

Portland, OR 97266

And then next Saturday if you happen to be in or around Austin you get to see not just me but also folks like Libba Bray, Varian Johnson and Margo Rabb:

Saturday, 24 October, 10:00 am -5:00 pm
Austin Teen Book Festival
Westlake High School
4100 Westbank Drive
Austin, TX

It will be an action-packed, amazing day. I cannot wait. I’m also thinking of starting a blood feud with another YA author. Maureen Johnson tells me they are lots of fun. Problem is that all the authors at the Teen Book Festival are so lovely. It’s very hard to feud with nice.

Hope to see/meet at least some of you!

    I have a fantastic idea for a blood fued. Try to take over Libba Bray’s spot as Key Note Speaker, lol, be all “Not that I think I’m better than you, but I have written more books” (though her page count may be higher, lol)

    Also I can’t wait to see you next Saturday (I’ll be the one wearing kitty ears >.>

  2. Justine on #

    Tasha: See the problem with that is that I’d then have to, you know, give a speech. *shudders*

    See you Saturday!

  3. Jacob on #

    Going to be at the Austin event. I can’t wait!

    For maximum convenience you’d want a blood feud with another YA author who also spends part of the time in Oz and part in US. The sort of evil person who would surreptiously videotape you learning the Lindy Hop, for example.

    Aw. I’m going to the International Writers Festival in Vancouver, Canada on the 21st. You should blow off Seattle and come along! 😉

  6. Rachel on #

    I’m going to be in Austin and I can’t wait!!!!!

  7. Justine on #

    Jacob: See you there!

    Thomas: I can’t believe you want me to start a blood feud with my own husband. Honestly! We’re already in the middle of a tickle war. Trust me, you don’t want that to escalate.

    Kaedtiann: If they invited me I would go but the evil bastards didn’t. *sulks*

    Rachel: See you in Austin. I’m beginning to suspect that the majority of this blog’s readers live in Austin. Interesting . . .

    I wanted to go to the U event, but because of work scheduling, I’ll probably be at the Third Place one instead. You can recognise me because I’ll be the girl with the massive bruises on her arms from giving blood.

    Also, I haven’t had time to start on Liar yet, so please don’t tell me what happens at the end. Unless it involves unicorns and zombies.

    I attend Shorecrest, and hear you’ll drop in for a quick interview. If you enter via main entrance, go left. That’s the main office, where they can point you to the Library.

    Oh no! Don’t tell the end at Thrid Place Books — I haven’t even seen a live copy of Liar, much less read it yet (school takes priority over fun, sadly). :O
    But I’ll be there, counting it for my obligatory Out of Class Literary Event in AP Comp and Lang. Ohh yeah. (:

  12. Rachel on #

    Oh, I don’t live in Austin! I live in San Antonio, home of the World’s Largest Boots and an oft-remembered cottonwood mission. Which means I’m traveling an hour for the festival- don’t you feel flattered? : -)

  13. Saints and Spinners on #

    Justine, I’m on to you. Like Micah, you’ll have us believe that this time you’ll do it, this time you’ll really tell the truth of what happens at the end of Liar. I don’t think you’ll do it! And I’m fine with that. In some respects, Liar reminds me of the film Donnie Darko.

    See you this evening at Third Place Books. My husband is coming too, so it’s an official date night.

  14. Kathleen on #

    Thanks for coming to the Mukilteo Library…you left several swooning teens in your wake!

  15. Tasha on #

    Rachel: I’m coming in from Houston to sleep on my Aunts couch, lol 😀

  16. Jacob on #

    Like Rachel, I’m from San Antonio. It’s probably going to take me an hour and a half to get there. Plus, getting up at eight. The sacrifices I make…

  17. Jacob on #

    …Still, it’ll definitely be worth it.
