Smart Chicks Kick It!

Since I'm BFFs with Cassandra Clare on Facebook now (thanks, Kari, for the heads up that she's there), I saw that she posted something called the "Smart Chicks Kick It Tour". If you loved The Mortal Instruments series (City of Bones, etc), The Immortals series (Evermore, etc), Wicked Lovely (and the others), Wicked Game, and a bunch of other great paranormal YA books, this is right up your alley.

If you go to, it should bring you to the Facebook fan page. If you are a member of Facebook, become a fan and you can vote (under the Discussion tab) for what city you want them to stop at on the tour! I voted Minneapolis/St. Paul, of course! :-)


The following information was taken directly from their "Extended Information" tab on their Facebook fan page:

The Smart Chicks Kick It Tour!

Sept 2010 Tour
8 Cities
6 Authors/City
All YA Paranormal

Our Tour, Our Way

Author tours are usually organized by the publisher. All we have to do is show up, which is great, but we started thinking maybe we'd like to try something different. Organize our own tour, just the way we want it. Pick the cities. Pick the authors. Organize the events. So, in Sept 2010, we'll do just that.

It's Your Tour, Too

Setting up our own tour is great. But it's not really about us. It's about the readers--getting out and meeting them. We'll be looking for input from readers to help us make this the kind of tour they want, too. And because we can't get to every city, we'll also be setting up a virtual tour component. We're still in the planning stages, but watch this page for more details.

Just read this AFTER I commented on your FB page. Hah. I posted a suggested city as well -- Minneapolis, obvs. How awesome would it be to meet all those authors?

I've only heard of 5 of them and have only read two of them, but that sounds really cool!
