Being on a Panel

Wednesday's answer and winners: I was at the WNBA (not basketball but books) Panel on YA Literature in Charlotte, NC. I was actually on the panel and my illustrious co-panelists were (drumroll please) Tracey Adams (agent extraordinaire--she and her husband run Adams Literary), Beth Revis (up and coming author of Across the Universe), and Carrie Ryan (established author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth, The Dead Tossed Waves, and The Dark and Hollow Places). The moderator was Snow Wildsmith.

As you can see, I was low man on the totem pole, and people didn't come to hear my depths of wisdom about YA lit. Even still, I hope I added a few good things and some comic relief. It was a lot of fun. Samantha Vérant was the first to list 3 people in the picture and Patti was the first to guess where. Honorable Mention to Alexa who gave every detail about where I was. Y'all are on the ball. Go check out their blogs if you haven't. There's great stuff there. N.B. Tracey Adams is Kimberly Marcus' agent and that's where I heard about the book I reviewed on Monday.

Alexa actually asked for a recap of the event and so, since I know you time is limited, rather than do a photolife post today, I'm linking you to Carol Baldwin's post about it. Wow. Lots of links. Enjoy.

I just read Carol's review of the evening sounds like it was a lot of fun.

You were in good company! Aren't panels fun? I was on one with Ellen Hopkins and Catherine Coulter, and I was definitely the low one on the totem pole!

Stina, That's okay. Thanks for playing anyway.

Patti, It was. Everyone was really nice and there was a great selection of books for sale afterward. The panel had picked some of their favorites to have on hand.

Diane, It was great company for me, and panels are fun. That must have been cool to meet Ellen Hopkins and Catherine Coulter.

I didn't want to play because I was there :) WNBA is awesome! You should come to some of our other meetings too.

Her highness, Samantha Vérant said...

You were in a good company!

It sounds like a fantastic event. I haven't heard of WNBA before.
