YALC & the Fringe — come say hi!

Posted by on Jul 10, 2014 | Leave a comment

YALC logoThe UK’s first ever Young Adult Literary Conference is almost here! I’m so very excited to be heading down to London for it at the weekend. The schedule of panels, workshops, and signings looks amazing (take a look here — I personally have no idea how I’ll fit in everything I want to do).

It’ll also be so lovely to meet in real life (real life!) lots of authors, bloggers and readers I’ve only met on the internet thus far. If you spot me, please do say hi.

Though I’m not attending the actual conference as an Author with a capital A, I’ll be joining other authors at the Fringe on Saturday evening to sign books and hand out Glimpse bookmarks. I’ll also be bringing a copy of Glimpse for the raffle.

(FYI, the Fringe event is now full to capacity. I’ll have bookmarks in my bag all day though, so if you fancy one feel free to collar me at YALC itself.)

Check out this Goodreads list of books by YALC authors, and this one by Fringe authors. Both have done bad things to my bank balance, as I’ve splurged on books I’ve been meaning to buy for ages, knowing I can now get them signed!

Books I’m planning to take (depending on how heavy my bags get):

  • Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell
  • Half Bad, Sally Green
  • Geek Girl 1 and 2, Holly Smale
  • Hollow Pike and Cruel Summer, James Dawson
  • The Night Itself and Darkness Hidden, Zoe Marriott
  • Hidden Among Us and The Hidden Princess, Katy Moran
  • Lies Like Love, Louisa Reid
  • Trouble, Non Pratt

If you’re heading to YALC, I look forward to meeting you very soon.
