Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Blue Willow Bookshop, Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at 7pm
Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner will discuss and sign This shattered world, the newest in the STARBOUND series for young adults. When: Wednesday, January 7, 7:00 pm Where: Blue Willow Bookshop, 14532 Memorial Drive, Houston, TX 77079 Admission: In order to go through the signing line and meet Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner, please purchase This shattered world from Blue Willow Bookshop. At the time of your purchase, we will issue a signing line ticket that indicates your place in line. Your book and signing line ticket can be picked up at the event. About the Authors: Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner are longtime friends and sometime flatmates who have traveled the world (but not yet the galaxy), covering every continent between them. They are sure outer space is only a matter of time. Meagan, who is also the author of the SKYLARK trilogy, currently lives just outside Washington DC, while Amie lives in Melbourne, Australia. Although they currently live apart, they are united by their love of space opera, road trips, and second breakfasts. You can find them on Twitter at @AmieKaufman and @MeaganSpooner. Book: In This shattered world, Jubilee Chase (a.k.a. Lee) and Flynn Cormac should never have met. Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet’s rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents. Rebellion is in Flynn’s blood. His sister died in the original uprising against the powerful corporate conglomerate that rules Avon with an iron fist. These corporations make their fortune by terraforming uninhabitable planets across the universe and recruiting colonists to make the planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion. Desperate for any advantage against the military occupying his home, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as his prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape base together, caught between two sides in a senseless war. Will they survive?

To Stella, it sort of evens out, and heck, the Klan hasn't bothered them for years. But one late night, later than she should ever be up, much less wandering around outside, Stella and her little brother see something they're never supposed to see, something that is the first flicker of change to come, unwelcome change by any stretch of the imagination.

Mac Barnett and Jory John
Blue Willow Bookshop, Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 5pm
The HILARIOUS Mac Barnett and Jory John will discuss and sign The terrible two, their new book for middle graders.

About the Authors: Mac Barnett is a New York Times bestselling author of many books for children, including EXTRA YARN, illustrated by Jon Klassen, which won a 2013 Caldecott Honor and the 2012 Boston Globe–Horn Book Award for Excellence in Picture Books, and BATTLE BUNNY, his New York Times– bestselling picture book written with Jon Scieszka. He also writes the BRIXTON BROTHERS series of mystery novels. Follow @MacBarnett on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and his website, macbarnett.com. Jory John is a writer, editor, and journalist. He is the co-author of the bestselling ALL MY FRIENDS ARE DEAD and the newly released GOODNIGHT ALREADY. Follow @JoryJohn on Twitter and Tumblr. About the Book: Miles Murphy had it made. He lived in a great town near the ocean, he had two best friends, and, most importantly, he had a reputation for being his town's best prankster. All of which explains why he's not happy to be moving to Yawnee Valley, a sleepy town that's famous for one thing and one thing only: cows. Worse than that, Miles quickly discovers that Yawnee Valley already has a prankster, and a great one. If Miles is going to take the title from this mystery kid, he is going to have to raise his game. It's prankster against prankster in an epic war of trickery, until the two finally decide to join forces in order to pull off the biggest prank ever seen: a prank so huge it would make the members of the International Order of Disorder (a loose confederacy of pranksters that flourished a couple of centuries ago) proud.

Charles Todd
Murder By The Book, Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 6:30pm
Charles Todd will sign and discuss A Fine Summer's Day (William Morrow; $26.99), the newest book in the Ian Rutledge series.

Charles and Caroline Todd are a mother and son writing team who live on the east coast of the United States. Caroline has a BA in English Literature and History, and a Masters in International Relations. Charles has a BA in Communication Studies with an emphasis on Business Management, and a culinary arts degree that means he can boil more than water. Caroline has been married (to the same man) for umpteen years, and Charles is divorced.

Charles and Caroline have a rich storytelling heritage. Both spent many evenings on the porch listening to their fathers and grandfathers reminisce. And a maternal grandmother told marvelous ghost stories. This tradition allows them to write with passion about events before their own time. And an uncle/great uncle who served as a flyer in WWI aroused an early interest in the Great War.

Caroline has always been a great reader and enjoyed reading aloud, especially poetry that told a story. The Highwayman was one of her early favorites. Her wars are World War 1, the Boer War, and the English Civil War, with a sneaking appreciation of the Wars of the Roses as well. When she’s not writing, she’s traveling the world, gardening or painting in oils. Her background in international affairs backs up her interest in world events, and she’s also a sports fan, an enthusiastic follower of her favorite teams in baseball and pro football. She loves the sea but is a poor sailor—Charles inherited his iron stomach from his father. Still, she has never met a beach she didn’t like.

Miles Arceneaux - RANSOM ISLAND
Brazos Bookstore, Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 7pm
It's 1953 and life is good at Shady's, the Sweetwater brothers' fish camp, dancehall, and beer joint on Ransom Island.

The biggest event in the island's history is coming up--an integrated dance featuring Duke Ellington. It's a daring idea for fifties-era Texas, and not everyone is happy about it. But soon interracial dancing becomes the least of the Sweetwaters' problems. Galveston mobsters track a runaway girl to Shady's and decide the offbeat island is the perfect place to diversify their illegal rackets . . . And God help anyone who gets in their way.

Suddenly, life on sleepy little Ransom Island becomes crowded, complicated--and very, very dangerous.
