I can’t believe Teen Fiction Café has hit its 3-year anniversary. I couldn’t be more thrilled for TFC and to be part of such an awesome group of authors. So three years ago, where was I?
Three years ago…
~ Of course, I joined up with the cool ladies at TFC to talk book gossip and good times!
~ Tina Ferraro, author of The ABC’s of Kissing Boys, partnered with me on YA Fresh to talk books and all that’s fresh.
~ I jumped on the Gilmore Girls fan wagon and had a serious GG marathon, followed by a totally awesome Veronica Mars series-fest.
~ Blog Memes were hot! (haha!)
~ I was a blogging mad woman, blogging here, YA Fresh, just starting with MTV Books, and keeping it real at my own personal blog. (I’ve so mellowed out a bit on the blogging craze!)
On a personal note, three years ago…
~ Graffiti Girl had hit shelves in May 2007.
~ I was crazy mad with nerves.
~ I had my first book signing with tons of friends and family supporting me.
~ I discovered that adults and teens would somehow find a connection with Angel and her dream.
~ And that the written word can touch a young teen’s heart.
What I’ve learned in these three years…
~ That you can’t please everyone with your stories, but the ones you do please makes it all worth it.
~ That even though publishing is not the easiest profession, I love being a storyteller.
~ And it’s people like you, the readers and writers I interact with, who make me feel a part of something good and real.
So thank you for reading and for being a part of TFC’s Anniversary!! I’ll be giving away one book to an interested TFC reader, Graffiti Girl or Invisible Touch (winner’s choice!). Just leave a comment…about something positive that happened to you three years ago.
Good luck! :) :)
