The SOLD OUT utopYA 2013 Announces Friday Keynote Speaker

You rock. Yes, you! Because of all of you I get to say this:

utopYA 2013 is SOLD OUT!

All I can say is, thank you…thank you…thank you. This thing has become sentient with a beating heart of its own. This year is gonna be epic.

Now, for the announcement you’ve all been waiting for (cue drum roll)….

Jennifer L. ArmentroutJENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT, the incredibly talented author of the Covenant Series (Spencer Hill Press) the Lux Series (Entangled Teen) and the upcoming YA Don’t Look Back (Fall 2013), will be kicking off utopYA 2013 on Friday, June 28th as our featured keynote speaker.

You can pass out now. I did right after Jamie Anderson, one of our author liaisons, confirmed her acceptance of our invitation, and right after I said “Oh, holy alien babies everywhere!”

Her keynote will begin at 9 AM on Friday, June 28th, and afterward she will be signing books and visiting with fans before heading to the airport.

“I am so excited to be presenting the keynote speech, and sharing my not-so-typical road to publication. Can not wait to meet everyone!” said Jennifer of her invitation.

Jennifer’s approach to her prolific work and to the genre is a lesson in perseverance, authenticity and heart. She is truly an inspiration to a generation of rising authors out there, and I can’t wait to be one of the people in the audience on Friday, June 28th in Nashville.



Let us know in the comments.

ABOUT Jennifer L. Armentrout

USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout lives in Martinsburg, West Virginia. All the rumors you’ve heard about her state aren’t true. When she’s not hard at work writing, she spends her time reading, working out, watching really bad zombie movies, pretending to write, and hanging out with her husband and her Jack Russel, Loki. Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class, where she spent most of her time writing short stories, which explains her dismal grades in math. Jennifer is the author of the Lux (Entangled Teen) and the Covenant (SHP) Series. She is also the author of Don’t Look Back (Disney/Hyperion) and Cursed (SHP).

Jennifer also writes new and adult romance under the name J. Lynn. Her USA TODAY Bestselling Gamble Brother Series is through Entangled Brazen and her new adult novel Wait for You releases on March 4, 2013.
