This is my second year as a published author and I have not participated in a school visit as of yet. Public speaking and oral interviews are a couple of those tough issues I've had to face as a published author for teens. Don't get me wrong, young readers are great to talk to you! It just took some time to realize that readers were actually interested in what I had to say that I had to get used to. haha.
Book signings are getting a little easier. Oral interviews still make me nervous. :)
Recently, I've been asked to visit a middle school class for the first time. I've asked the teacher to suggest a couple of topics that she would be interested in me speaking about.
Writing in general?
How I got into writing?
Graffiti Girl or Invisible Touch?
And I'll probably bring some candy.
I have to have something to break the ice, right?
Any suggestions for my class visit? I need all the help I can get! :)
