Today on the blog I’m super excited to be hosting a stop on the Wing Jones photo blog tour.
Throughout January, over 40 bloggers will be participating in the #WJphototour – a photo blog tour documenting Katherine’s path to publishing her debut novel. From childhood memories that inspired her writing to her time living in Atlanta and Asia that influenced the book to authors she’s met over the years right up to receiving her first finished copy of the book, follow along to see Katherine’s author life unfold! Keep an eye on the hashtag to see the latest photos!
So without further ado, here is my photo and caption:
As a proud Grisha fangirl, imagine my glee when lovely Nina Douglas asked me to chair an event with Leigh Bardugo. I was SO nervous but Leigh was so charming and gracious and glamorous—we had so much fun. I still am grateful to everyone who came to that event! I’ve been lucky enough to chair lots of events since then, but my first event will always be dear in my heart. This event led to invitations to chair other events, and now I consider event chairing part of my job. I love it and feel very lucky that I get the opportunity to talk to so many amazing writers.
About Wing Jones
For fans of David Levithan, Jandy Nelson and Rainbow Rowell: a sweeping story about love and family from an exceptional new voice in YA. With a grandmother from China and another from Ghana, fifteen-year-old Wing Jones is often caught between worlds. But when tragedy strikes, Wing discovers a talent for running she never knew she had. Wing’s speed could bring her family everything it needs. It could also stop Wing getting the one thing she wants.
