Check it out!!!
I got to meet Brandon Mull last week at a book signing! Ok, if you don't know, here's the scoop... He's an awesome and amazing YA fantasy book writer. I've read all of his stuff. Including the Fablehaven Series, Beyonders: A World Without Heroes , Beyonders: Seeds of Rebellion and The Candy Shop War . He's also written a really cool children's book called Pingo (looks like there is second one too) . His latest books (both just released) are Beyonders: Chasing the Prophecy and The Candy Shop War, Book 2: Arcade Catastrophe .
Here's what I learned at the book signing.
1: My husband and kids all agree I'm a super big nerd (I think I actually already knew that).
2: After standing in line for two hours I really really wish Whitney lived close by me and we could go to things like this together. I got pretty board and tired.
3: Brandon Mull is writing a new Fablehaven series!!! Another five books (these ones are going to focus on dragons) and the first will come out in 2015.
4: He treats writing like a real job. He said he tries to write everyday from 9-5... that's impressive!
5: He's cool with getting his picture taken with a crazy lady who loves his writing even though it's usually kids who ask to get their pictures with him... well, that's me speculating, but he was really nice about it.
6: I don't know if I learned anything else... but he was super nice!
So if you haven't read any of his stuff, I think you should. Cause it's awesome! I'll review the new Beyonders book after I've read it... I'm thinking I want to reread the first two though. That's how much I loved them.
