Kick Ass Women Take Over!

I'm loving all the excitement for The Hunger Games movie, not only because the books are fabulous, but also because they feature Katniss - a young woman who is courageous, independent, and not afraid to fight for her family (not to mention her life!)

I love reading about heroines who kick ass without apology, so I'm seriously thrilled about Heather Brewer's new series: The Legacy of Tril. The first book, SOULBOUND, which I was lucky enough to read, will be in stores July 5. Girl + katana + fabulous world building = amazing book!

You are lucky because I'm hosting a contest to win an advanced copy of SOULBOUND. Just leave a comment here (be sure to include your email address so I can contact the winner) to enter!

UPDATE: The winner is Kristen

Wonder Con!

I'm heading back to SoCal!

From March 16-18 I'll be at Wonder Con in Anaheim. The highlight of the weekend will be a panel I have the honor of moderating on Sunday afternoon from 3 - 4 p.m., which features:

Ann Aguirre, Enclave
Kami Garcia, Beautiful Creatures
Gretchen McNeil, Possess
Lissa Price, Starters
Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Veronica Rossi, Under the Never Sky

I'll have to work hard on my questions so I don't start fangirling over all these talented authors!

The panel takes place from 3 - 4 p.m., but I'll also be signing on Sunday at 11 a.m. at Mysterious Galaxy's booth (#900).
