And This Is How The Weekend Went

Me: All right. I am going to open this laptop now and get some work done on that new project I want to start. The kids are gone all weekend. I have no excuses. I must write. You can’t edit a blank page.

Also Me: It is known.

Still Me: It is known!

Dammit.

My First Aesthetic For DREAMER!

Dreamer Collage-1

There it is in all its glory: my first aesthetic for DREAMER! It’s just a little glimpse of some of the adventures and moments that Jessa gets to experience and of course, you get to tag along! TRAVELER got us started, but DREAMER is when you need to fasten your seatbelt and prepare for one wild ride through the multiverse. Everyone ups their game in this one, and Jessa has to learn to depend on her most valuable resource: herself (or ‘selves’).

I know it’s maddening having to wait for this one to hit the shelves, but I promise, you’re going to be blown away when it does. I am fiercely proud of how DREAMER came out. You’re going to love it!

I Had A Blast At B-Fest!

bnexton-bfest2017

That’s me, signing for the beautiful and utterly awesome Jessica at Barnes & Noble’s B-Fest teen book festival this weekend in Exton, Pennsylvania! And before that, I got my butt whooped at YA trivia at B-Fest in Plymouth Meeting, PA. I swear to God, Stephanie was a ringer sent in from corporate or something. She was like the Yoda of YA. She knew every title, every cover, every plotline–she was nothing short of amazing.

And along with Jessica and Stephanie, I got to meet so many new faces, some who already had the book and some who stopped to say “Whoa, look at that cover!” then heard my pitch, and walked away with a copy.

All in all, despite the long day, it was a world of fun. Anytime I can get to know readers (or potential readers), it’s a good time.

Thanks again to Barnes & Noble for hosting me, and I’ll see you all next year at B-Fest 2018!
