Earlier this month, I got to participate in the Polk Authors and Illustrators Festival. Small Child joined me.
As many of you know, WriteOnCon was last week. Among the attendees was a very generous author/artist who offered to sketch everyone's characters. I'm not sure she knew what she was in for, but she has been diligently working on her drawings for over a week now. Here is her rendition of Tracy Tam. I love the devious smile.
Amy's book, Gated, has been released into the wild today. And to celebrate, I am hosting a giveaway for my books as well as hers in a huge contest. Check out the prizes below, and make sure you enter on the right hand side of the page.

A. Souders for Renegade and Revelations, autographed copy of Gated, Gated shirt, bookmarks, and owl bracelet.
is Riesa's story, but in earlier drafts, her best friend Connor took
a front seat in many of the scenes. As I brought the story forward,
Connor slipped into the background more and more. Here is a scene
that I still believe happened in her story, but it got pulled out so
I could focus on other things. It's the story of her first kiss.
