YAB Fest Poster2

YAB Fest (the Young Adult Book Fest) is this Saturday (May 11) in Round Rock, Texas! I have the privilege of moderating the OUT OF THIS WORLD Panel, which is appropriately named because there are such amazing authors on it! (Also, our books all feature fantasy/sci fi worlds). My fellow panelists are so cool that I decided to feature one of them every day until the start of the festival. (Also, this is my first time moderating a panel. I’m slightly nervous about it, so I’ve decided to error on the side of overachieving).

Today’s featured OUT OF THIS WORLD Panelist is . . .

Sharon’s debut novel, THE CHARGE (a New Adult science fiction novel) was a quarter-finalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. It is a fabulously entertaining alternate history, set after the fall of the evil Texas Empire. Sharon is a fellow Austinite, but unlike me, she knows her Texas history well enough to make up her OWN VERSION of it!. I really enjoyed this book, and it has caused me to look suspiciously at all tall, black-haired, blue-eyed Texans I encounter. (Trust me – after you read the book, you will do this too!)
