Ya Fest in Easton, PA

This past Saturday Krista, from The Dust JACK-et, and I went to Ya Fest in Easton, PA.

We had a great time working our way through the 35 ya authors chatting, getting books signed, and collecting more swag then we knew what to do with! We also scoped out the used book sale and entered a bunch of awesome book raffles.

All of the authors were so nice! A few that I most enjoyed seeing were Maria V. Snyder, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Jonathan Maberry, Shannon Delaney, Michelle Zink, Cyn Balog, Anne Greenwood Brown, and Brigid Kemmerer.

The books I had signed

My book tote has soooo many new signatures!

And back

And some miscellaneous things
-Anne Greenwood Brown was giving away Lies Beneath shirts so I snatched one up!
-The pile of books on the left are ones that I won in the raffle; 5 of the 8 books are signed which is awesome.
-And the books on the right are ones I found at the used book sale; can’t beat .25 for paperbacks and .50 for hardbacks.

I'm already looking forward to going next year!!

Just a side note- I added a lot of swag, from YaFest, to my swag bag giveaway which I post on the first Sunday of every month. Check out this month’s here.


  1. Oh wow! I wish I had known about this! Looks like it was so much fun...

  2. I'm so jealous, but very glad you and Krista had a great time! Congrats on winning the drawing, Jen. :)

  3. That's so awesome! Congrats! I am definitely tagging along next year!

  4. What a great way to spend a day! And you came away with tons of goodies. You've been zooming through books. Now you have plenty more.

  5. Whoa, that looks like fun! I love the bag you had signed all over! I wish I could go to stuff like that. I either never hear about it or I live too far away.
    Lucky you!

  6. Thanks for the comments everyone! It was a great day.

    I'm looking forward PAYA (bringing ya to PA) this weekend!


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
