Look Who’s Going to BEA: Melissa Marr

Can you introduce yourself to my readers? Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?

Since I did that fairly recently, I’ll re-direct you instead of boring you by repeating myself.

What should readers know before stepping into your world?

There’s no prior knowledge required for my YA series (Wicked Lovely) or adult book (GRAVEMINDER). I write books based in the world we live, but altered by the addition of “folklore is real” in some way.  They’ve been categorized as urban fantasy, paranormal romance, fantasy, and modern folklore by various sources.  None of the books require you to know the lore upfront though.

Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran?  Any advice for those who are going for the first time?

This will be my 5th BEA, actually. I’ve been to it every year; it was where I signed the first ever copies of WICKED LOVELY. I’ve signed every other book there too.

My advice? Wear good walking shoes & layered clothing. The temperature is unpredictable, and sore feet are inevitable even with good shoes. Pre-plan the signings & panels you want to attend. Those who are prepared cope better.  There are listing s of signings, a floor map, and general data all  available online. Oh, and be aware that cell service in the center is iffy, but text messaging tends to be fairly efficient.

Are you speaking on any panels during BEA?  Are there any you are looking forward to?  What panels are you planning on attending?

My schedule is a little weird this year as I have things for both my last Wicked Lovely book AND for my first adult book.

    I wish I was going to BEA! I’d love to meet Melissa (I’m a huge fan!) and all the other great authors attending.
