WRITE WITH US! LIVE FANFIC AND BLOCKBUSTER FICTION @ Fiction Addiction
Nov 5 @ 10:00 PM – Nov 6 @ 12:00 AM

Love reading? Considered becoming a writer?
Ever wonder, “How did the author come up with THAT!?” Come talk about your favorite best-selling YA novels and build a story with the authors of four hot young adult trilogies in an interactive audience-participation event. Work as a group to create a story in the same way that the authors of blockbuster novels create theirs. Using examples from familiar audience favorites like DivergentThe Hunger Games, and Harry Potter, the authors will guide readers and aspiring writers through a fun, often hilarious, and educational event.

It’s amazing what you can find out about a character – and about human nature – when you put her or him in an extreme situation.  Each of these authors will introduce their new books and what their protagonists are up against – and then we’ll discuss challenges of keeping the thrills coming without taking your eye off the characters.

Hit is a frightening glimpse of a reality not far from ours, where big banks have bailed the U.S. out of debt and use their new-found power to force ordinary citizens, like innocent teen Patsy, to become indentured assassins.
Barrie Watson arrives at her aunt’s island plantation to find that an ancient spirit has cursed one of the island’s founding families and given the others magical gifts that manifest as compulsions. Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy and keep hold of a love she never expected to find in Compulsion.
In Evil Fairies Love Hair, Ali and her middle school classmates are raising a flock of fairies to grant them wishes – but raising fairies is harder than it sounds! Mistakes are made, spells go awry, and soon Ali is up against hundreds of two-inch tall imps with big plans.
At the Academy of Tildor, the training ground for elite soldiers, Cadet Renee de Winter struggles to keep up with her male peers. But when her mentor is kidnapped to fight in illegal gladiator games, Renee and her best friend Alec find themselves thrust into a world rife with crime and intrigue in The Cadet of Tildor.
