If y’all weren’t already excited enough about the Texas Teen Book Festival, we have more news for you (maybe sit down if you aren’t already). Scott Westerfeld, author of the Uglies series, is coming to TTBF 2014!

Westerfeld’s upcoming novel, Afterworlds is a smart, thought-provoking novel-within-a-novel featuring Darcy Patel, a writer in New York City looking to publish her teen novel also called Afterworlds. Over the course of a year, Darcy finishes her book, faces critique, and falls in love. With her novel woven into Darcy’s personal story, this a book you won’t be able to put down. Look for its arrival on our shelves September 23.

This is one of many awesome announcements to come about the Texas Teen Book Festival (formerly the Austin Teen Book Festival). Get the news first by following TTBF online:

Texas Teen Book Festival happens on October 18, 2014 on the campus of St. Edward’s University. It’s one of our favorite events of the year. We’re proud to be co-founders of this festival and love working on it (and of course being there the day of with all of the books!) Don’t miss it!
