Give the Gift of Reading
On December 8th at 4:00pm, come down to Barnes and Noble at The Grove and give the gift of reading during my holiday season book fair!
826LA is a non-profit organization devoted to improving literacy among students. Any book you buy with a book fair voucher will automatically give money to 826LA. It's a pretty awesome way to do your holiday book shopping. Seven Spectral: Into the Red World donates the largest percentage, so to get the most bang for your donation buck, be sure to pick up a copy at the event. Already have one? It's the holidays, folks! Give, give, give to your cousin, sibling, mom, best friend -- sky's the limit!
In addition to getting your book signed and hearing me blabber on about death-defying adventure and other awesome stuff, meet some of the volunteers and students that make 826LA tick and keep an ear out for words from them about how the gift of reading has effected their lives.
Celebrate the holidays! Celebrate reading! Celebrate the youths of 826LA! And sure, why not celebrate the Red World while you're at it?
And then join us next door for some after-party style celebration! Warning: the after-party will likely involve libations. If you're under 21 -- that'll be the boring part anyway, nothing to miss :)
Also, don't forget to wear as much red as possible to the book fair! I'll be doing a gift give-away for the person wearing the most red, so dress to impress!

On December 15th at 2:15pm, come down to Barnes & Noble at The Grove and learn how to Tame Your Wild Narrative during my holiday season writing workshop!
9-Dots is a non-profit organization devoted to improving education among students. At the workshop, you will receive a voucher to buy any books in the store. All books you buy with the voucher will automatically give money to 9-Dots to start up their kids library. It's a pretty awesome way to do your holiday book shopping and work on your story at the same time. Purchasing Seven Spectral: The Orange World Outlaw gives the largest percentage, so to get the most bang for your donation buck, be sure to pick up a copy at the event. Already have one? It's the holidays, folks! Give, give, give to your cousin, sibling, mom, best friend -- sky's the limit!
International best-selling author Sheri Fink will be there doing the workshop with me. You'll get a chance to go over your story with us, and we will help you figure out how to transform it into the tale you've always wanted to tell!
Workshop your story with me, get your book signed, see the premiere of the Orange World Outlaw trailer, buy holiday presents, and help kids -- that's a lot of accomplishment for one day. I really hope to see you there wearing your favorite shade of Orange!
