YA authors are incredibly lucky because we have amazing, generous, creative fans.
Don’t believe me?
Feast your eyes on my newest shoes; hand-painted with illustrations from the covers of Speak and Catalyst!
Even the box they came in was decorated!
These gifts were made by Isabel and Julia (don’t want to give last names in the interest of protecting their privacy) and the quality of the work is amazing. Every time I wear the shoes people stop and ask me where I got them! They are pieces of art!
I love seeing how my readers express themselves. Even nicer when they share!!
