And here’s Amber’s Jasper Fforde Adventure:

I consider meeting Jasper Fforde to be my very first YAuthor Stalking Adventure. My friend, Lindsay, found out that Jasper would be visiting a bookstore in Milwaukee on his tour promoting The Fourth Bear, so we hopped in the car and drove up to meet him. His reading was fantastic (and hilarious, but that was to be expected) and the line was super super long for the book signing afterwards. Both wearing our Jurisfiction T-shirts and going completely fangirl on him, I fear we were horribly annoying.

Have you met Jasper Fforde? Do you have a YAuthor Adventure to share? Email Amber and we might post it on a YAuthor Stalking Tuesday!

    I just read the MJ interview, and it is tough to figure out if it is actually the real MJ. It was before her first book came out, and she does refer to herself as a little known writer. So it possibly could be her. But in none of the questions could I detect a sense of that glittery MJ personality. Regardless I’m going to say that it probably is the MJ we all (should) know and love. I look forward to next week’s YAuthor Stalking. I also suggest you stalk Ally Carter as Heist Society comes out soon!

  • Lindsay says:

    Also, what about Sarah Prineas? You could easily stalk her. We know where she lives. (To be taken in the least creepy way possible)

  • Lindsay says:

    Also I need another Jurisfiction shirt. I spilled something on it that never came out.

  • Amber says:

    I think I will probably just email MJ and ask her. Mystery solved. Well, not yet…but the mystery to how we will solve the mystery is solved.

    And yes and yes to Ally Carter and Sarah Prineas, except I don’t have an Ally Carter Adventure! Anyone else have one they want to share?!
