If you're into teen books—especially paranormal teen books starring tough girls (written by smart chicks)—then you will not want to miss this event.

YA authors Melissa Marr, Alyson Noel and Kelley Armstrong have organized a joint tour during the month of September, called Smart Chicks Kick It! Here's a little more info:

Author tours are usually organized by the publisher. All we have to do is show up, which is great, but we started thinking maybe we'd like to try something different. Organize our own tour, just the way we want it. Pick the cities. Pick the authors. Organize the events. So, in Sept 2010, we'll do just that.

Tonight they're in Jackson, MS, at Lemuria Books. Later in the month, they'll also be in Arizona, California, Illinois, Ohio and Ontario.

Marr, Noel and Armstrong will appear at all tour stops. Authors such as Holly Black, Jackson Pearce, Jessica Verday and a whole bunch of others will appear in select cities.

If you can't make it to a tour event in person, you can follow along on Twitter or on the Smart Chicks blog.

Is anyone going to check out the tour?
