Next Saturday, I'll be heading to Austin for the Texas Book Festival. It will be my last public event for 2009, and I'm looking forward to it! I'll be sharing the Paramount Theater stage with Peter Lerangis, a fellow 39 Clues author. As I mentioned, I'll be bringing something special for show-and-tell, but it's a secret until the day of the festival. If you live too far away to attend, I'll give you an update after the festival. A whole slew of great authors will be on hand, so if you are in the Austin area, definitely make plans to stop by. It's always a great party!
