My friend Alexa’s fantastic new novel Sound is releasing this week! If you love science fiction, you absolutely need to check out her books. They’re so smart. So GOOD. To celebrate its release (and the release of Isla in paperback), I’ll be joining her—and a few other awesome authors!—at two upcoming events:

Sunday, October 4th at 2:00 pm
A young adult panel with Renne Ahdieh, Alexandra Duncan, Alan Gratz, and Stephanie Perkins. Everyone is welcome! Free to attend. 

Monday, October 5th, at 5:30 pm 
A young adult panel with Renee Ahdieh, Alexandra Duncan, Alan Gratz, Stephanie Perkins, and Will Walton. Everyone is welcome! Tickets are $10. From the store’s website: “Each ticket can be redeemed for $10 off a purchase of the featured authors’ books prior to or at the event, and includes one admission pass to the event.”

I’ll also be attending Hank Green’s super sweet inaugural Nerdcon: Stories in MINNEAPOLIS, MN on October 9th & 10th. The guest list is insane, and I'm so psyched and honored to have been invited. There’s still time to register if you haven’t.

These will be my last events for the rest of the year (and probably most of next year), so please come say hello to me if you can!

As for the rest of October . . . hell yeah, I'm doing 31 Horror Films in 31 Days again! Stay tuned. This blog is about to become a blog again.


  1. Hi! I am here because I've missed your blog and whats the point of your blog without an Ashley comment?

    PS. I miss theeeeee.

  2. I just got done reading your the latter presumably doesn't refer to the Schö/oenberg, who had no Zurich connections that I know of my writing dissertation, but the coincidence is amazing 3 series books and I am pleased!

  3. Glad to know about these events and I am sure you enjoyed all of them. I am planning to arrange a pool party with my friends and searching for exotic event venues Chicago. Came across few venues and looking forward to book perfect venue soon.
