July 2013 Events

Sorry this post is a bit late, everyone. I've been on vacation for the last week and haven't had a chance to get the info for this post together. There are some really fun events happening in July. The only one I have committed to right now is Comic Con. Alethea and I are both going so if you happen to see us, please say hi. We should have some bookmarks to hand out. Or if you want to meet up, just tweet us and we'll see what we can do. On to the events!

Who Needs Magic? is the sequel to Don't Expect Magic, now in paperback (and which will also be available for sale at the event). In Who Needs Magic? reluctant teen fairy godmother Delaney Collins faces off against rival f.g. Ariella Patterson, and sparks fly. Both books are for readers 12 and up.

All book buyers under 18 will receive a fun goodie bag. However, no purchase is required to attend this event. It would just be lovely to see you. Feel free to come or go at any time.
