Thanks to:

I also went to Changing Hands Bookstore where Sophie Jordan, Aprilynne Pike, and Kiersten White were signing! I had such an awesome time! The authors were all super funny and sweet and I loved meeting them! It was great finally getting a chance to talk to Sophie Jordan in person because we’ve been talking on twitter for awhile now and Firelight was the first ARC that I recieved! I have to say though, I had tons that I wanted to say and ask her, but when I got up to her, every thing that I wanted to talk about flew right out of my mind! Hopefully I can go to another one of her signings in the future and maybe then I will actually remember what to say!

I didn’t get many pictures because we were in the front row and only a few feet away from the authors and I didn’t want the camera flashing right in front of their eyes. =P I also got a chance to see the Late Bloomer Online ladies, Jen and Espe, again and we had a really great time chatting! They are super amazing and I really hope we can meet up again soon!

Here are the few pictures from the signing:

    i am jealous of you getting to go to that signing! Looks awesome. Fab books this week

  2. Awesome books. Over the Moon by Diane Daniels looks great. I added that one to my tbr list. :) Have fun reading the books you got this week, but I'm sure you will.

  3. OMG! I'm SO excited for you! I would LOVE to meet them! And don't worry, every time I go to a signing I freeze up and can't think of what to say. I mean do you say "Hi, I'm Candace (Bailey) and I talk to you on twitter. And I have that blog…" Yeah. I guess I worry that they talk to a zillion people and how would they remember me? Then I would feel REALLY stupid. It's MUCH easier with debut authors though. Because they have a smaller fan base and every single fan is a huge deal to them. They probably would have all known who you were. I know Kimberly Derting's signing, RIGHT after The Body Finder came out, was awesome! I spoke to her before the signing just looking through the store and I was brave enough to approach her. I felt that gave me a huge boost in the audience because I was actually a familiar face to her then. I'll always remember that signing cause it felt so much more one on one. Okay, sorry, I totally went off subject! But I know signings are SO exciting!
    My friend Angela got Solid so I'm waiting to hear if it's good! It sounds good!

    Wow you looked like you had so much fun. I alway get nervous meeting people and have this huge fear of meeting an author I love and standing there with my mouth flopping open stuttering LOL I love the books you're reviewing. Can't wait to learn more about them :)
