Vampire Academy series, Richelle Mead!
She's coming to Mobile, where she'll be speaking and signing at Page and Palette, a wonderful family-owned bookstore. If you happen to live in the area (and you happen to be a reader of my blog) then come on out and show your support! It's gonna be fun, I'm sure!
I'll do my best to get some pics for all to see...but don't hold me to it!
