SHADOW AND BONE Author Leigh Bardugo Participates in Power of Fandom Panel

As we stated before, Leigh Bardugo was at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore at The Grove in Los Angeles to participate in what was called the Power of Fandom panel. In the video, she answers from fan questions, sitting alongside Legend author Marie Lu, co-creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra Mike DiMartino, and co-produce of The Walking Dead Seth Hoffman.

As we stated in a previous post, Leigh Bardugo will be at the Barnes & Noble book store at the Grove in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 26th, with Legend author Marie Lu, Avatar and Legend of Korra creator Mike DiMartino, and The Walking Dead Co-EP Seth Hoffman.  If you’re attending (which I hope to try myself) and you like drawing, then you might be interested in this contest by New Leaf Literary:

Hello Fellow Tumblrites!  We here at New Leaf had an AWESOME idea that spawned from an AWESOME event that is happening next week (I seriously can’t wait—the fangirl in me is wigging out!).  You see, creative geniuses Michael DiMartino, Marie Lu, Seth Hoffman and Leigh Bardugo are getting together on a panel to discuss the incredibly rich worlds that they have worked on…(you might recognize some of these)
 tumblr-fan-art-contest
….and how their work and/or creative processes have evolved in the age of social media—where fans have direct access to the artists they admire and have the resources to create fantastic art and stories inspired by others.  (Which is, in my opinion, freaking awesome.) So in turn, we had an idea that involves the amazing and talented fans out there: a tumblr fanart contest!
Using the hashtag #PowerofFandom we invite you to create a piece of fanart that encompasses something from each of the panelists’ work.  Be creative!  Make it fun!  Anyone can enter!

How cool is that?!  Of course, this type of crossover may need some out-there creativity, as you it’s not generally known that characters from Avatar or Legend of Korra frequent the lots of The Walking Dead.  However, artists tend to have a very creative mind anyway.

So, get at it, and post it on Tumblr!  They might get it signed for you and even shower you with other gifts as well.  Who knows when it comes to these authors.

For all the details about the contest, go here.

SHADOW AND BONE Author Leigh Bardugo Will Be Signing At Barnes & Noble With Other Cool Authors

leigh-bardugo-2-fi

As Leigh Bardugo is now on tour for her Siege and Storm novel, she’ll be making a stop at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore at The Grove in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 26th at 7pm!

Not only that, but there will be other very cool authors that will be joining her at this stop:

MIKE DIMARTINO (Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender)

MARIE LU (Legend, Prodigy)

LEIGH BARDUGO (Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm)

SETH HOFFMAN (The Walking Dead)

hosted by KURT MATTILA of The Big Pull Pod.

We’re gonna be talking twitter, tumblr, and storytelling in the new age of fandom. And we’ll be taking your questions. And signing things. And giving away prizes.

This is definitely an event not to be missed if you live in the area.  You will have to purchase your copy of Siege and Storm from Barnes & Noble (or have a receipt that shows you purchased it at Barnes & Noble) to get it signed by Leigh.  It is not a wristbanded event, so make sure to get there early.

I am so insanely excited for this. My brain is alight with Zombie/Korra/Grisha/Legend mashups. In fact, if someone makes this happen, I may have to bestow prizes.

We’re excited for her!  So go show your support and be there!

New Fandoms Will Be Introduced in TheFandom.net Site!

thefandomlogo-withslogan-02-small

Last night, TheFandom.net had their first ever live hangout session in which we got to talk about the movies that are coming up for some of our fandoms that we have on the site.  However, one of the most exciting news to come from the hangout happened near the beginning of the hangout, where we revealed that we will be adding more fandoms to the site in the very near future!

A little after the 4:20 mark, I get to announce which fandoms will be getting their own fandom site, which are listed right here:

  • Daughter of Smoke & Bone (book series by Laini Taylor)
  • Graceling (book series by Kristin Cashore)
  • Legend (book series by Marie Lu)
  • Shadow & Bone (book series by Leigh Bardugo)
  • Sherlock (BBC TV Series)
  • Supernatural (The CW TV Series)
  • Under the Never Sky (book series by Veronica Rossi)

As to the reason we chose each series, it’s really just a matter of the quality of the books and the TV shows.  They either have a certain unique quality about them, either through the story that’s told, through the characters that we learn of, or both, and we’re very excited to give these fandoms an opportunity to grow on the site and expand the fandom to many other people who are looking for new books or shows to gush over.  We hope you agree with us when you do get a chance to learn about each one of them.

You can watch the rest of the hangout episode below:

I’ll send you notice when the new fandoms have been integrated into their new homes!
