Hello Dear Readers!
M.L. Wang here with more details on the actual physical event I’ll be attending this August! The Crafty Cat Rescue has invited me to be part of an amazing line-up of authors doing signings at their Books, Crafts & Cats fundraiser, so yes, I’m actually going to crawl out of my hermit cave and see people!
WHEN: August 10th (9:00am – 2:30pm)
WHERE: The Washtenaw Golf Club 2955 Packard Rd
Ypsilanti, Michigan, 48197
WHAT: The event, which is FREE to attend, will include:
- a silent auction of signed books (including books donated by Naomi Novik & Tomi Adeyemi)
- a new & used book sale
- cats for adoption (or just to hold ❤️)
- Q&A’s with each author
- book signings by the authors
WHY: Proceeds from the event go to funding The Crafty Cat Rescue and their animal-saving efforts. And hey, if cute kittens aren’t enough of a sell for you, here are the authors (that I know of so far) who will be signing books and meeting readers:
- Mindee Arnett, author of epic fantasy, Onyx & Ivory
- Molly Harper, author of YA fantasy, Changeling
- S.D. Grimm, author of YA fantasy Scarlet Moon
- Janet Vormitagg, animal activist and author of fiction centered on cute animals
- Linsey Miller, author of YA epic fantasy Mask of Shadows, which I just read for Pride Month! (Full post here. Spoiler alert: I really liked it!)
- And also me, M. L. Wang, author of Theonite and stuff, you guys know me.
I recently got my boxes of paperbacks, brand new bookmarks, and fancy stickers for my table!
I’ll be signing and selling these copies of Theonite: Planet Adyn, Theonite: Orbit, and The Sword of Kaigen at a discount, with a dollar or more from each sale going to the Crafty Cat Rescue (bookmarks and stickers will be free).
As anyone who follows me knows, I’m pretty reclusive. I barely get out to see my friends, let alone readers I’ve never met – so this is both exciting and terrifying. But mostly exciting.
If you’re somewhere in the vicinity of Ypsilanti, Michigan on August 10th, you should come say hi and hold some kittens! It would be amazing to meet some of you in person!
