Someone Spilled The Beans...

So, today I was browsing around on HarperTeen’s Facebook site and I saw that they were already announcing their Supernatural Summer Tour lineup for next summer. And guess what…????

OMG...YES! I am on it!!!!

*jumps up and down* *screams like a little girl* *throws up in mouth (just a little)*

Did I know Harper was sending me on tour? Yes!

Did I think it was a secret that I had to keep to myself? Why, yes. Yes, I did.

Did I have any idea that HarperTeen was going to publicly announce the tour on their Facebook page??? Umm...no, I did not. (And is it terrible to admit that I kinda wanted to say it first???)

But you know what HarperTeen didn’t have on their site??? Pictures that show how exciting it’s gonna be…

Like this one:




Or this:

Or even this:


So if anyone asks, just tell ‘em you heard it here first. And that my announcement party was way cooler than theirs…

I think you should party, Vlog style. And, I do hope you will be making your way to Vegas. Are YA authors allowed out here or do your publishers start to shake when anyone brings it up?

Kimberly Derting said...

You guys are awesome!!!

I'll let you know when actual dates and cities are announced...and maybe I'll even post some more pictures...! ;)

LMJ - I don't know about the publishers, but I'm kinda partial to Vegas. Plus I'd like a personal tour of table 32.

Lisa Schroeder said...

I hope Powells in Portland is one of the stops - you know I'll be there if it is!

So happy for you!!

What did Will say in that basketball movie, 'I'm so happy I can't feel my arm,' I'm so happy for you.
All the very best.

Tam said...

Yay for you! You know I will so be there if you're anywhere near home! You'll recognize me; I'll be the one wearing the "Team Kim" t-shirt, sleeping on the sidewalk outside the night before. :)

Kimberly Derting said...

"Team Kim" hmm??? I like it! Maybe it'll catch on...

Kiersten White said...
