YALL Fest Fun

What fun it was to attend a young adult book festival in Charleston, South Carolina on Saturday: The YALL Fest 2012!

Omnific Publishing sponsored an exhibitor table and provided tons of YA books to give away to our readers. Lovely author Trisha Wolfe signed copies of her steampunk-futuristic-sci-fi Destiny’s Fire, and I signed copies of my swimming-romance-military-murder-mystery Streamline.

Here I am wearing a fake Navy hat, posing with Trisha Wolfe. Yes, I am twice her size. 😉

We also had the pleasure of introducing readers to our pub sisters’ creations:

Embrace by Cherie Colyber
Life, Liberty & Pursuit by Susan Kaye Quinn
Ember and Shades of Atlantis by Carol Oates
Breaking Point by Jessica Bowen

(Too bad Iridescent by Carol Oates and Reaping Me Softly by Kate Evangelista were too hot off the presses to make it to this festival.)

Here are readers holding their signed copies of Streamline!

Morgan and Briana–aren’t they cute?

Happy reading to all who attended! I definitely encourage you to attend next year’s YALL Fest if you can make it. It’s a great place to interact with enthusiastic readers.

  1. That looks so fun! How nice to get a chance to interact with readers. Is Trisha, like, 4 feet tall? Hey, I got to meet a new Omni author this weekend — Marian Vere! (Who's actually another Jennifer) I'll get our picture up later this week.


  2. I was so busy watching all the YALLFest panels that I never even made it to the exhibitor tent, and now I feel like I missed out. As a Charleston native, I hope you enjoyed your visit!


  3. AWESOME!!! Looks like this was such a fun event Jen! And Trisha is quite possibly the tiniest person ever. I feel like I would squish her if I tried to hug her. You look adorable in your hat:)


  4. Nicki, hee hee. I'm either 6'5\” or Trish is 4' in that picture. I was calling her \”Mini-Me\” but I'm not sure she liked that. ;-)Egads, ANOTHER Jennifer? We're invading! I like her pen name a lot.
