BookCon

BookCon15_logo_1024Listen up Ladies and Gents! I’m going to BookCon 2015! Ordering my ticket TODAY! I’m so excited!

Especially since one of my last posts was about book conventions. I’m hoping that it will be everything I want it to be. I mean so many many authors I’ve read are going:

  1. John Greenfloatingbooks
  2. Rainbow Rowell
  3. James Dashner
  4. Jodi Picoult
  5. Lauren Oliver
  6. Margeret Stohl
  7. Marissa Meyer
  8. Meg Cabot
  9. Melissa de la Cruz
  10. Michael Buckley (whose book I just request through Edelweiss)
  11. Ridley Pearson
  12. Tony DeTerlizzi

That’s 12 authors/youtube stars/illustators that I am out of my mind anticipating to see! And I’m going to be smart about it this time! About a month ago Rita Williams Garcia came to speak at Rowan and I hadn’t bought a copy of One Crazy Summer. I had an e-edition, of course, but I don’t want author’s to sign my kindle. That’s just asking for it to be lost and/or stolen and/or broken in some way shape or form.

My point being that I had no book for her to sign and it saddened me. But I’m going to have books for BookCon AND I’M MAKING A SUPER AWEOMSE RRW SHIRT FOR IT!

For those of you who are new, and those of you who haven’t seen my shameless plug for my other project: Round Robin Writes is a collaborative writing project I work on. 4 Writers write 1 story (We’ll actually be accepting applications for additional teams come May) we also write book reviews and some writing prompts but I think with the additional teams that we’ll probably do away with the Writing Prompts soon and move toward more book culture articles. BUT THE SHIRT IS GOING TO BE AWESOME! I’m planning on using the paint splatter logo currently featured on our Facebook page and using the back as a library card so that there will be lot’s of space for autographs.

OOOOOOOOH! I’M SO EXCITED!!!!ย tumblr_inline_mzqh3ex1U21rju2ib

She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her masterโ€™s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessicaโ€™s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
