Dark Days Tour in St. Louis, Missouri this Friday!

Happy Sunday readers! Hope you are all having a great weekend! After my AMAZING experience at AViD in Des Moines last Sunday, I have caught the ailment I am henceforth referring to as "The Book Event Bug"! I know many of my readers have already contracted this illness, but I have been a little late to the party. You guys can check out my review of my time in Des Moines meeting the amazing Cora Carmack and Jennifer L. Armentrout by clicking here! After getting back home and doing some research, I came across an author event that was too big to pass up. Hope you guys are ready, this is going to be a BIG one!

Introducing the Dark Days Tour featuring some of the BIGGEST names in Young Adult literature today (including a new favorite of mine). 

Well, in case you aren't like me and the sight of these four women gives you chills, allow me to introduce you to the ladies of the Dark Days Tour: Kimberly Derting, Danielle Paige, Kelley Armstrong, and Kiera Cass! Here's the promo from the event sponsor:

Join four top Young Adult authors for a Q&A panel and booksigning! Kimberly Derting, author of The Body Finder series, discusses the first novel in her new series, The Taking. Danielle Paige discusses her debut novel, Dorothy Must Die, set in a Tarantino-esque Oz. Kelley Armstrong, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Darkest Powers series, discusses her new novel, Sea of Shadows. And #1 New York Times bestselling author Kiera Cass discusses The One, the final book in her Selection series.

The event is being held this coming Friday evening at 7PM at the St. Louis Ethical Society in St. Louis, MO. Find out more about the Ethical Society including directions and more information about the facilities by visiting!  Now let me tell you a little bit about the four amazing authors you can meet! Oh and did I mention this was  FREE event? Well, it is!

Kimberly Derting

Kimberly is the author of the BODY FINDER series (HarperCollins), THE PLEDGE trilogy (Simon & Schuster), and THE TAKING trilogy (coming April 29th from HarperTeen). She lives in the Pacific Northwest, the ideal place to write anything dark or creepy...a gloomy day can set the perfect mood. She lives with her husband and their three beautiful (and often mouthy) children who provide an endless source of inspiration. 

Danielle Paige 

Danielle Paige is a graduate of Columbia University and currently lives in New York City. Before turning to young adult literature, she worked in the television industry, where she received a Writers Guild of America Award and was nominated for several Daytime Emmys. Dorothy Must Die is her first novel.  

Side note, Danielle Paige is one of my newest favorite authors. I have already reviewed two of her works and have communicated with her via Twitter and email. She is an AMAZING author who I am VERY excited about meeting. She's definitely up and coming in a HUGE way. Check out my review of Dorothy Must Die by clicking here!

Kelley Armstrong

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers' dismay. All efforts to make her produce "normal" stories failed.

Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She's the author of the NYT-bestselling "Women of the Otherworld" paranormal suspense series and "Darkest Powers" young adult urban fantasy trilogy, as well as the Nadia Stafford crime series. Armstrong lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets. 

Kiera Cass

Kiera Cass is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Selection series, as well as the self-published fantasy novel The Siren. She is a graduate of Radford University and currently lives in Blacksburg, Virginia, with her family. Kiera has kissed approximately fourteen boys in her life. None of them were princes. 

Can I just add that Kiera has a BUNCH of different hilarious bios online. Seriously, I just laughed so hard. This woman is awesome. Kiera is a well known name in the YA game right now and is widely known for her Selection series (Book 3 comes out this week)!

As previously stated, this is an awesome opportunity to meet four of the leading authors in the business right now! It's guaranteed to be a FREE fun time for all! I will be there, along with a few members of my support staff (including my copilot Megan, whom you guys met last week). To say that I am excited to a huge understatement. Friday is actually my "dead day" for classes and signals not only the end of the semester for me, but the end of my Undergraduate career! I graduate the following week, so attending this event will be a much needed break and reward! Please comment below and let me know if any of you guys will be in attendance, I would love to meet you guys! If you can't find me, look for Danielle, I'll be the one freaking out that I'm in the same room as her (yeah, I'm THAT guy). Oh well. Well, I hope you all have a great week and be sure to check back in soon, I have some awesome giveaways going on right now and some new one this week!
