Today, I visited Fairfield High School, read a passage from The Starriest Summer, and did a Q&A! IT WAS GREAT! The librarians and an ESL teacher told me how awesome it was to follow my dreams, write something that teenagers can relate to in words that teenagers might actually speak, and I encouraged some of the kids to PURSUE THEIR PASSION FOR WRITING!!! Yes! Oh god, it was great! I love inspiring people! EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!!!!
Thank you everyone who came to my event the other day 😀 It was a lot of fun.
I think my performance for the reading was better than the first time, too.
Here are some short recordings of the reading! 😀
The event was a lot of fun! Thanks so much to everyone who showed up 😀 It means a lot to me!
I brought tea and cookies to the event. Many audience members refused the offer, but I forced it on them! Ha! Aha ha ha! Ha!
I read Chapter Two from the beginning until Madam Manasa disappears from the boat. I was a little nervous, so I read it faster than usual, taking up twelve minutes instead of the previously timed eighteen minutes. I put on voices and accents, which some people told me afterward they quite enjoyed. They said they could tell what people were speaking just from my voice change, so that’s awesome! 😀
The Q&A session was fun, too 🙂 We discussed my video game inspirations, how I wrote the characters, and then some more in-depth stuff about the YA genre and romance. There were some great questions.
The bookstore sold out of my books from the event! That’s cool, buuut then there was also another woman who wanted to buy a copy but they didn’t have any more >_< I need to bring more.
It was a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to do it again for book two 😉
In another news, I’ve added another page dedicated to the voice-acted book promotions! I wanted to make them easier to find.
