Dark Days of Supernatural Tour: My Stop
In June, I happened to be in Michigan for the Dark Days of Supernatural stop at Schuler's Books in Lansing, Michigan. There I met a few fellow book bloggers (before I even had a blog) and talked with them before the signing. I also ended up meeting Kristi, of the famous Story Siren and she took some pictures of me with a couple of the authors.
Me and Veronica Roth (Divergent)
Me and Josephine Angelini (Starcrossed)
Aprilynne Pike (Wings series), who I met at Vroman's in Pasadena, California, as well as Ellen Schreiber (Vampire Kisses) were there. And as a special surprise, I also met Courtney Allison Moulton (Angelfire) and Aimee Carter (The Goddess Test), who gave me a piece of her gum! Okay, it was cool for me. Not only that, but after everyone got their books signed, I went out to dinner with them and had an amazing time getting to know the authors behind the books I love. And might I say they're really awesome people. I hope to see them all again soon, and hopefully they'll remember me and I won't look like a total dork.
I wish I had been able to go to more of these signings, but the good thing for you is that I'm going to the launch party for Kiersten White's Supernaturally, signing with fellow YA authors Andrea Cremer who's the genius behind Nightshade and Wolfsbane as well as the lovely Stephanie Perkins, who wrote Anna and the French Kiss and the highly anticipated Lola and the Boy Next Door. It's at the Barnes and Noble in Oceanside on July 26th at 7 p.m. if you're in the area. To say I'm excited would be underplaying it. It would be even better if it wasn't 2 1/2 hours away with a trip down the 405 (Carmageddon area, for those of you who don't know). At least I'm dragging my boyfriend along. He usually just finds a cool psychology book somewhere far, far away from the signing. Hopefully I can get pictures for you guys!
