Bloggers aren’t the only ones recounting their adventures in San Francisco. Authors do it (and have done it before bloggers even began attending). Jude keeps track of everyone at Blogging Nationals where you can find the most up to date information about RWA San Francisco such as Louisa Edwards pre-conference horror story of the hotel running out of power. Bring a flashlight, kids, and possibly an extra battery for the laptop.
Kristen Painter and others are keeping track of what the YA authors are doing. Fictionistas will be doing a series of interviews with the YA Rita finalists (both the Young Adult category and the YA books in the Best First Book category) during the week of Nationals.
Come check out what Melissa Marr, Maureen Johnson, Simone Elkeles, Kelly Parra, and Rosemary Clement-Moore have to say. And as an added bonus, if you post a comment during that week, you’ll be entered to win a totebag full of YA books from the conference! It’s that simple. The more times you post, the more times you’re entered to win, so check out each day’s interview.
Interviews will be posted from July 28-Aug 2 at www.fictionistas.blogspot.com.
And of course, we’ll have DA coverage starting Tuesday night. Hopefully, we’ll have exciting things to share or things we perceive to be exciting in the bubble of the convention.
