I'm so excited to be participating in YALLFest again this year! The full schedule went live yesterday, and YAY! Time to share panels and signing times. (Remember that you can always check for upcoming events on my Events page!)
As a special treat, I'm bringing 150 exclusive WAYFARER prints to my signings! They were done by Hayley Mayne, who did the art for the other pre-order giveaway prints. 50 will be available at my signing during YALLCrawl on Friday, and the other 100 will be handed out on my signing on Saturday. Please note that the Saturday signing will be wristbanded and limited to 100 people.
If your schedule is too packed to stop by and say hello, don't be afraid to stop me on the street! Unless I'm trying to hustle between panels and signings, I'm always down to sign something, take a photo, or chat.
