Teen Book Festival #BFest at Barnes and Noble @BNSpokaneNorth

I'm super excited to share with you about Barnes and Noble's first Teen Book Festival called B-Fest! It's happening national, but each BN store that is participating is having their own local authors join in the fun.

Not only is this a great event, but I am EXCITED to be a part of it along with two other YA writers that live in my city: Rachael Ritchey and Jenny Elliott. So if you live in the great Pacific Northwest near the WA/ID border, come on over to Barnes and Noble at Northtown Mall this weekend!

Check out Rachael and Jenny's books and then check the schedule for the weekend below. Each BN has slightly different schedules so check your local one to see which authors are near you!

Rachael Ritchey is the author of the series​ Chronicles of the Twelve Realms, YA fantasy (magical realism) fiction set the​ medieval era of another world. Her enthusiasm for archaic settings of the past stems from her appreciation for true history, which continues to ​influences us even today​. When she's not delving in to the fantastical world of the Twelve Realms, Rachael is with her family in the real world on the eastern side of Washington State where there’s plenty of inspiration to dream

Jenny Elliott is a lifelong resident of Washington State and lives in Spokane with her husband and four kids. Writing fiction is her favorite method for avoiding insanity. Other avoidance techniques include reading, playing Scrabble, and browsing social media sites. Save Me is her first novel.

Debut-novelist Jenny Elliott's thrilling romance, chosen by readers, writers, and publishers for the first list in the new Swoon Reads imprint, pours on the tension and danger in an addictive combination that will keep you turning pages!
Something strange is going on in the tiny coastal town of Liberty, Oregon. Cara has never seen a whale swim close enough for her to touch it―let alone knock her into the freezing water. Fortunately, cute newcomer David is there to save her, and the rescue leads to a bond deeper than Cara ever imagined.
But then she learns something about David that changes everything, and Cara is devastated. She turns to her best friend for support, but Rachel has changed. She's suddenly into witchcraft, and is becoming dangerously obsessed with her new boyfriend….
Cara has lost her best friend, discovered that her soul mate is off limits, and has attracted the attention of a stalker. But she's not completely alone. Her mysterious, gorgeous new friend Garren is there to support her. But is Garren possibly too perfect?
