Rock the Drop--Phoenix!

Tomorrow is Rock the Drop--Phoenix. I'm excited to be a part of it. I'll be talking about how I use brainstorming in my writing and leading a mass brainstorming session to create a fantastic new YA novel right there on the spot.

The event is free and features writing workshops from me, of course, and the always amazing Janette Rallison, a new and exciting YA author, Amy Dominy, Sandy Greene, Rhonda McCormack, the hilarious Angela Fox and her son, Zach, (also a writer), as well as our wonderful coordinator, Sarah Francis Fujimara.

It's at Gangplank in Chandler, 260 S. Arizona Avenue. The action starts at 1 p.m. Read all about it at the official Rock the Drop--Phoenix website. And like us on FaceBook. Watch the FaceBook page for pictures of our Rock the Droppers leaving their books in public places for readers to find.

This event is in connection with the national Rock the Drop sponsored by ReaderGirlz that will take place April 12th. Every year thousands of teens drop a gently-used YA book in a public place with an official ReaderGirlz Rock the Drop bookmark stuck inside. Great idea, isn't it?

Even if you don't live in the Phoenix area and can't attend the event, you can be part of Rock the Drop! In fact, you can Rock the Drop anywhere in the world.

I know you all care about literacy. This is something concrete we can do to make a difference. So get ready, set, rock!
