Thur Aug 8 @ 7pm - SWEAT Tour (w/ Shannon Messenger, Amy Tintera, Debra Driza, & Kasie West)

We are excited to have an awesome line-up of AMAZING AUTHORS join us from Southern California to kick off their Texas Tour. Shannon Messenger, Amy Tintera, Debra Driza, and Kasie West will be joining us for a Chat about YA and Middle Grade books!

Shannon Messenger graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts where she learned--among other things--that she liked watching movies much better than making them. She's the author of the middle grade series, KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES, and LET THE SKY FALL, a trilogy for young adults. She lives in Southern California with her husband and an embarrassing number of cats. Find her online at

Debra Driza is a member of the teen lit blogging group the Bookanistas and a former practicing physical therapist, who discovered tormenting her characters was infinitely more enjoyable. These days you can find her at home in California, adding random colors to her hair and wrangling one husband, two kids, and an assortment of Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Mila 2.0 is her first novel.
 Hometown girl, Amy Tintera, grew up in Austin, Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in journalism. After receiving a masters in film at Emerson College she moved to Los Angeles, where she promptly discovered she didn't enjoy working in the film industry, and went back to her first love, writing. Her debut, REBOOT, is out now from

HarperCollins/HarperTeen, with the sequel to follow in 2014.

 Amy is also a first year alum of the Young Adult Book Festival in Round Rock.
Kasie West, as a stay-at-home mom of four children, three of them girls, ranging in age from twelve to four, hears lots of melodramatic versions of large-than-life events. She graduated with a BA in liberal studies, with a strong focus on linguistics and psychology, from Fresno State University. She lives in Fresno, CA.

 You can probably tell, we expect that shenanigans will follow them... Join us for So-cal Writers Excellent Adventure in Texas (SWEAT).

Books will be available at The Book Spot and you will need to buy one of the featured books to get in the signing line. If you want to get your book in advance, we have them at the shop currently and will sticker it for the event.
