Quick shout-out

Just a quick shout-out to Portland's own LK Madigan, who had a furious turnout for FLASH BURNOUT, her debut YA novel.

I'm in the middle of the crowd at her reading at Powell's (Cedar Hills) so you can't tell, but there were 50+ people there! Zoiks! (Honestly, I don't think I've ever had 50 people at a bookstore event.)

Lisa, in addition to being a fellow Portland Kid-Litter, was also the first person in Portland to invite me to do a school visit, which was awesome of her. Also awesome was the fact that, while we were out to lunch on the day of that school visit, her agent called her to say that FLASH BURNOUT, then just a manuscript, had sold! (See how it all ties together? That's called careful plotting, boys and girls...)
