That one about touring

Things are getting a little hectic on my end. I’m drafting book three, working on side projects, prepping for TAKEN’s release (so close now!) and finalizing my tour plans.

What’s that? I never told us you I’d be touring?

Well this is me officially announcing that come May 29th, I’m hitting the road with fellow YA authors and PubCrawl Blog contributors Susan Dennard, Sarah J. Maas, and Kat Zhang for a multi-city, pay-it-forward tour!

Young Authors Give Back Tour

From May 29th through June 14th, we’ll be hitting up seven cities to sign at various bookstores and meet with readers.

As fun as book signings are, we still wanted to do a bit more with this tour. The four of us started writing at a young age–we had inspirational forces in our life who helped foster our creativity and love of storytelling–and we’ve been wanting to give back to other young writers in that same way. As such, we are pleased to announce that we’ll also be hosting free writing workshops for young aspiring writers (ages 13-22)!

We’ve been planning this tour for months and are so thrilled its finally coming together. Now, we’d love your help in spreading the word. In fact, by sharing the news about the Young Authors Give Back tour in any of the below manners, you’ll be entered to win a finished copy of one of our books:

  • Retumble this blog post announcing the tour.
  • Tweet the following message exactly (don’t change/edit it or we won’t be able to track you): YA authors Erin Bowman, Susan Dennard, Sarah J. Maas, & Kat Zhang hit the road for the #YoungAuthorsGiveBackTour!
  • Share the news on Facebook! (But please leave a comment below that links to your Facebook share!)
  • Pin the tour promo image above to Pinterest! (Also, please leave a link to your Pin in the comments!)

Any of the above methods will earn you an entry and we’ll pick four winners on April 1st! (Prizes will ship internationally, so enter one and all!) I can’t really put into words how excited I am about the YAGB tour. Not only will it be one epically long road trip with three of my closest friends, but I’ll get to meet readers and work with young writers every step of the way. An author’s dream come true! :)

Head to for the full tour details and be sure to follow us on twitter @YABGtour.

I really hope to see you at one of the tour stops! If I’m not visiting your city, be sure to check my events page. I’ve got a few other appearances planned in the coming weeks and maybe Ican see you there instead. <3
