Beautiful Darkness Signing at King’s English

22 Oct, 2010 by in margaret stohl, new YA fiction 52 comments

Last night was the final tour stop for YA authors Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia’s Beautiful Darkness Book Tour at Utah Indie bookstore The King’s English. Kami and Margie were full of Southern Hospitality even though they herald from L.A.
If you want a good laugh, tune in and watch their previous blog T.V. coverage of the tour. They have fun bantering back & forth. (Frequently MStohl breaks into random song) Kami revealed she likes to think of new ways to kill off her characters, so you can bet not everyone survives the four book series. She is a Black Sabbath type of girl while Margaret prefers Glee.
The two have already planned out the entire series via grape smelly marker on a white board. Interestingly, the original idea for Beautiful Creatures came after hearing a group of teens complain about what they saw in YA fiction and what they wanted to see change.

YA contemp author Emily Wing Smith
hosted the first Q&A session and introduced her upcoming book
“Back When You Were Easier To Love” to be released April 28, 2010 by Dutton.

Brodi Ashton, author or the upcoming Ever’neath series mediated the Q&A speed round where questions were taken by blog TV participants online as well as live participants. In the audienc fieilding questions was Bree Despain, author of The Dark Divine.

Fellow Utah Book Bloggers Emily’s Reading Room were there with their Literati group.
