So, the other night I met Ellen Hopkins! Yes, it was exciting, yes I was barely able to offer more than a weak hi when I met her and if Elevenies Jessica Martinez hadn’t been in line in front of me and told Ellen Hopkins she’s a writer, too, and pointed to me, I never would’ve had the nerve to say even that. Yes she read from PERFECT, and yes, it sounds AMAZING. No, I didn’t get it because it’s not out yet, but I will. However, I did get a signed copy of GLASS. And yes, I am giving it away!*
So, all you have to do is leave a comment. And since I’ve now run away from Sara Zarr and barely said more than five words to Ellen Hopkins, and am wondering if paramedics will be called when I go to LeakyCon Lit Day this summer and meet all these awesome authors, I think it’d be great if you guys tell me about your close encounters of the awesome kind, or if you haven’t had a close encounter, which author do you hope to meet some day? One winner will be chosen randomly and announced here on April 22nd. Good luck and it wouldn’t kill me if you retweeted and let others know;).
*U.S only, please.
