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!

He was born with the sea in his veins and the smell of salt in his hair. . .

That’s a line from my YA fantasy novel, TRAVELER, and yes indeedy….it’s got a pirate! Despite their often smelly and bloodthirsty reputations, movies and books seem to be chock full of handsome pirates, quick with a witty retort or a clever bit of swordplay. And why not?

The call of the sea, the break of the waves, the clean, fresh air and the moonlight on the water….
