Plans! Plans! Plans!

The FNC is all busy getting ready to head to NYC two weekends in a row! We've been a little quieter on the blog lately, but you can count on getting some sweet recaps very very very soon!*

Where are we headed?

January 21-23rd: 
Frankie, Janine, and I will be the official live bloggers of the Writers Digest Conference!
This incredible event features a ginormous Pitch Slam where attendees have two full hours to pitch over 50 agents in 3-minute sessions (!!!! my palms are sweating already) AND the schedule is chock full of sessions covering writing, revising, querying, and promoting your work; becoming a successful author; social media and the digital age; and everything else you need to know about being awesome.

-- Here's the website for more details: It's not too late to register!

January 28th:
FIRST, we're heading to WORD bookstore in Brooklyn to see...
Leila Sales (Mostly Good Girls), Lauren Oliver (Before I Fall), and Anna Jarzab (All Unquiet Things)!!!
LOVE all these books, and we're so excited to meet the authors, check out an indie bookstore, and hang out with Lenore(!) and other bloggers-of-awesome.

And then AFTERWARD, we'll be attending KidLit drink night for some cocktails!

And that WEEKEND, Sara will be attending the SCBWI Winter Conference!

And then on 1/23, we're co-hosting our very own LIT NIGHT IN PHILLY!
More details to come, of course!

Frankie's headed to a Maggie Stiefvater-hosted Super Amazing Writer Retreat of Awesome!
Check out her blog for the droolworthy details of how you can ask 23 YA writers anything you want!

WHEW! We'll be sure to post more about these events as they near, but in the meantime we're JUST SO EXCITED!

Anyone else headed to NYC in January?
