Los Angeles/SoCal folks, I have an exciting event to encourage you guys to go to. :heart:

Next Wed (June 26th) at 7pm, I will be paneling at the Grove's Barnes & Noble with Leigh Bardugo (Shadow & Bone, Siege & Storm), Mike DiMartino (Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra), and Seth Hoffman (The Walking Dead).

I'm on the floor, spazzing out like foamy-mouth guy, but don't worry, I will be okay. Possibly.

So if you're a fan of any (or all!) of us, please come out and see us! We're even running this fabulous fanart contest, where if you create a crossover fanart of all 4 of our properties, we will all sign a print of your artwork at the…

So. Next Wed, June 26th. 7pm. The Grove Barnes & Noble. Los Angeles. Come say hi! :heart:

p.s. I believe we are all signing things afterward. :)

I just finished Champion (literally, I went straight from reading the acknowledgments at the end to your profile to tell you how amazing that book is). The ending was so extremely touching, and there was a scene (pages 336-341, won't say what happens for the sake of anyone who hasn't read the book..) that literally made me tear up, and the whole entire series was just...amazing. You're a brilliant author; please, never stop writing. :hug:

I just literally finished your book Legend and when I read that you had a deviantART in the Acknowledgments section, I immediately came to find you. I didn't even know this was the first book of a trilogy, and now I can't wait to read the other two. :)

I have to say, it was an amazing book. I just think it's sad that my first favorite character had to be Metias.. RIP to him. <3

After hours curled up in bed, I've just finished Champion! It was totally worth waiting for the library's copy! I LOVED the Legend trilogy and thought the writing was amazing! I was so inspired by all the writing techniques!

Hello, I just wanted to let you know that I just finished reading Champion and absolutely love your books and your drawings on here. They were fantastic and the series was among my favorite series list. I'm really looking forward to The Young Elites, and any other books you plan on writing.
