Why I have to keep writing

It’s plain and simple, really. If I didn’t keep writing I wouldn’t get invited to fun places like James Dashner’s author dinner last night at the Phoenix Book Company.

Here’s a picture of Aprilynne Pike (Wings) James, (Maze Runner) and Me. (And I’m not going to list all my books but number 16 comes out in May.)

We got to meet lots of librarians and reading specialists, who are superheros in my book because they’re the ones that help kids discover the fun of reading.

And I know I said next blog I’d be giving away more books, but I guess this is good time for all of you to learn that you can’t trust writers because we lie for a living. Next blog, I’ll give them away. Really.

    Ahh… the lies (oops sorry) lives of a writer! ;o)
    So fun!
    Well you also must keep writing so we can keep reading!

    Oo Janette, I am very jealous. You live such a fabulous life. Plus, you look amazing in that picture. Wow.

    So glad things are going well for you. If you get a chance swing by my blog. I posted a picture you have to see. It’s straight out of My Fair Godmother.

    So jealous of all the fun stuff you get to do.

    Also, I haven’t stalked you for awhile.

    I can see why you have to keep writing. Those are some cool people to hang with.

    BTW, I love the My Fair Godmother trailer just as much as I loved the book.

    Looks like it was a blast!
