#NTTBF16 Recap

Wow, I know this is a little late, but better late than never, right?

I was lucky enough to be an attendee at the North Texas Teen Book Festival again this year. I also had the fortune to attend the luncheon and panels on the educator day with my mother-in-law.

I enjoy so much getting to listen to the authors speak about doing what they love, but also being reminded that they are human and have struggles, just like the rest of us.

One of the things that is interesting to hear is how these authors, all of them successful, all have different processes. (If you want to know how I feel about that, check out these posts.)

Here are some of the other tidbits I gleamed from NTTBF this year.

STORY 1 -Fiercely Fantastic Panel – ON STORIFY

STORY 2 – Paranormal Tendencies Panel – ON STORIFY

And of course, listening to these authors make me want to read their books. Some of those I’ve added to my list are Cindy Pon, Jonathan Maberry, Sarah Rees Brennan (she was added last year, I still haven’t got to her books), and Natalie Lloyd (my understanding is that her books are more MG, but I don’t mind 😉 )

Since I’m writing this at such a late date, it may be fun to add that while I was at Dallas Fan Expo, I wore by NTTBF shirt and promoted it to the local teens that stopped by the booth.

I love this event. I look forward to one day being able to volunteer to help (I hope).
