Houston, we are go for launch!

Greetings! I am She Who Wakes At Dawn To Piddle, or "Pippin" as my servants call me. I have condescended to blog today, because She Who Writes Books is very busy. She has ignored me on several occasions of late, but I have been generous, and merely sighed at her, and did not chew her sparkly shoes, though they smell delightfully of feet.

She Who Writes Books is busy because she has not only the two puppies, The Loud One and The Unsteady One, but also a new book. It is called Princess of Glass, a title I find acceptable, although Pippin of Glass would have been better. Pip-- er, Princess of Glass will be celebrated at a number of events, which I will recount here. She Who Writes Books becomes nervous about these events, and moans that no one will come. This displeases me. All must attend.

But do not eat all the cookies. I wish to partake of the leftovers. (That's why it's called a doggie bag.) (This is not a joke. Humor is frowned upon among my people. When we ruled the Roman Empire, we did not laugh at the Celts. We destroyed them and then left white hairs on their cushions.)

She Who Writes Books will appear under her human name, Jessica Day George, at the following locations and times.

Saturday, June 12th, The King's English Bookshop (Salt Lake City), 2 pm.

Friday, June 18th, Barnes & Noble at Jordan Landing (West Jordan), 7 pm.

Saturday, June 19th, Dragons and Faerie Tales (Eagle Mountain), 5 pm.

Sunday, June 27th, ALA Spring Conference in Washington D.C.

Wednesday, June 30th, Barnes & Noble Sugar House, 5 pm.

There will be readings! And talkings! Questions answered, upcoming projects revealed! Book giveaways! Treats! Sparkly shoes! And other such things as humans enjoy!

All must attend, or there will be chewing of shoes, and much displeasure!
