Beth Revis Launch Party Pics and a Contest Hint

So I'm utterly exhausted this morning - teacher-me has a hard time staying awake past ten on a school night and I didn't get home till ten, then had stuff-to-do.  But I promised pics. And, on Saturday, I will be announcing a giveaway of a signed copy of Beth Revis' newest novel, A MILLION SUNS.

I think the line that stuck out most to me last night (besides Stephanie Perkins saying that she had John Lennon's imaginary baby when she was in high school) was Beth Revis telling us a story about receiving a query rejection on the same day she hit the New York Times Bestseller List. Wow. She also wrote ten manuscripts before selling the first of this series, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. So, wherever you are in the publication process, take heart, you are not alone in the struggle.
From left to right: Beth Revis, Stephanie Perkins, Carrie Ryan (in the back, live tweeting in the red shirt, is Beth's husband) 
For some reason my eyes shut in photos - Gah. Anyway, here's me being all fan girl with Beth Revis.

  2. Yep, pretty fun. And good to be around in the flesh kidlit writers instead of virtual writers.

Hey, do you ever wonder why they call it 'your two cents?'
