I was on tour in January/February and since I got back and basically collapsed into edits, I never posted my photos anywhere but Facebook.

So here are some highlights!

USBORNE LEVEL 2 LAUNCH PARTY/LONDON/JAN 10, 2013

Usborne rented out Ice Tank - the perfect location for the white world of Level 2:



I got my nails painted for the first time ever (Level 2 style!):



The official photographer had people pose with crazy props. Here she is fitting Daniel into one of
them:



Lucky 13er Amy McCulloch (The Oathbreaker's Shadow) and me:



See more photos from the London Launch and behind the scenes info at Dark Readers.


S&S LEVEL 2 LAUNCH PARTY/WATERMARK BOOKS/WICHITA, KS/JAN 16, 2013

I actually wrote up a recap for this event that you can check out on the Lucky 13s blog. And Kelly of Stacked did a recap too!


MYSTERYSCAPE/KANSAS CITY, KS/JAN 19, 2013

Emily Hainsworth (Through to You) and I interviewed each other during this event.  Fun format! Here we are with Alison M.


A ton of KS authors came out to support us including Claire Caterer (The Key & The Flame), Bethany Hagen (Landry Park), and Laura Manivong (Escaping the Tiger). Laura also got me a spot on the Fox TVmorning show so that was kinda crazy!  And blogger Andy came as well as my HS friend Andi and her daughter.

A recap of this event at Escape to New Worlds


ALA SEATTLE, WA/S&S LIBRARIAN PREVIEW & MORE/JAN 25-27

S&S had me introduce Level 2 to a group of librarians over lunch and I got to meet Sarah T. finally:


Everyone who attended got Level 2 tote bags.  I love the S&S Library marketing team! They were so much fun.  They also set up a dinner with me, Kimberly Derting and Jeyn Roberts where we were served CHUNKS of chocolate cake.  I wish I had gotten a photo. They were so huge.

This was my first ALA and I enjoyed running into bloggers (way too many to name here, but you know who you are!), librarians and authors both on the exhibits floor and at the YA Highway/Stacked meet-up.  Here I am with Emma Trevanye (Coda) -- we are showing off our Fluevogs.


I know there is a Lucky 13ers photo floating around but I can't find it -- lots of us there including Amy Tintera (Reboot), Kristin Halbrook (Nobody But Us) and Kristen Kittscher (The Wig in the Window). Oh + Cat Winters who was signing In the Shadow of Blackbirds and Sarah Skilton who was signing Bruised. I know I'm missing some too ...

ALA recap at The 1st Daughter


NOT YOUR MOTHER'S BOOK CLUB/BAY AREA, CA/JAN 30, 2013

NYMBC hosted me, Lissa Price (Starters) and Erica Lorraine Scheidt (Uses for Boys):


Also great to see Cory Jackson (If I Lie) and Tamara Ireland Stone (Time Between Us) again.

MALAPROPS/ASHEVILLE, NC/FEB 2, 2013

Why has no one told me how awesome Asheville is? I loved it! Fun panel with Beth Revis (Across the Universe), Meagan Spooner (Skylark), Victoria Schwab (The Archived) and Megan Sheperd (The Madman's Daughter):


Plus guess who lives in town and bought a copy of L2? Stephanie Perkins! You bet I had a fangirl moment:


And so many awesome blogger friends showed up to this event -- Christina, Vania (+ her awesome writing group ladies), Heather and her son, K8, Kathy, and the West twins:


Also, I must mention the elusive WalMart and all the fun Kathy, Christina, Raquel and I had trying to find a bottle opener for our wine ...

More recaps of this event at BermudaOnionFroze 8, Buried in Books, and Bookworm in Love.

FOUNTAIN BOOKSTORE/RICHMOND, VA/FEB 6, 2013

Kelly Justice is one of the coolest bookstore owners I've ever met and she moderated a panel with Jodi Meadows (Incarnate), Meagan Spooner, Megan Sheperd, and me. Here we are with our books:


Lots of blogger friends came out to this too - Susan, Becca, Rebecca, Amanda, Jess and Lucky 13ers Anne Westrick (Brotherhood) and Elle Cosimano (Nearly Gone). I also ate corn dog nuggets, awww yeah!

A recap of this event at Wastepaper Prose

HOORAY FOR BOOKS/DC/FEB 7, 2013

Another signing with Megan, Jodi, and Meagan:


Hooray for Books is such a great store and I adore owners Ellen Klein and Trish Brown. Lots of bloggers came out including James, Vi, Amanda, Cecelia, Megan (no H), Jessica, Jenn and Steph. And lots of DC area authors too including Jessica Spotswood, Diana Peterfreund, Ellen Oh, Miranda Kenneally, Jodi Lynn Anderson and way more.

More recaps of this event at Step Into FictionEllen Oh's blog and Book Chic.

Okay, now I have to take a nap ...

Hope to see YOU this time around :D

How fun! Now you need to come check out upstate South Carolina - it's almost as awesome as Asheville.

Zibilee said...

Aww, Lenore! You got a chance to be on TV! That's tremendously awesome!! I almost want to drive over to Georgia to come meet you, but can't at this moment, and that stinks. But my mom lives near there, so I will try to send her to show my support. So, so proud of you. Your success makes me so happy :)
