So, I'm finally going to post a few pictures I took from my trip to Naperville for the book signing. It was a ton of fun. All of the authors were super gracious and really wonderful to meet.
Here's a shot of all three authors....well, there's a camera in front of Melissa Marr, but other than that.
Ah...here we can see all three of them. Kim Harrison, Melissa Marr, and Kelley Armstrong. They spoke first and answered a lot of questions. I think they all got about and equal number of questions, which was cool. There were quite a few people there, I would say at least 150 if not more. The line moved really quickly though, and they personalized all of my books, and I got some cool swag. I picked up a bracelet from Melissa, a bookmark from Kelley, and from Kim, some Once Dead, Twice Shy shoelaces, tomato seeds (the Hollows books), and a bus token to the Hollows.
I'm sooo glad that I went; it was a once in a lifetime thing to meet three of my faves.
The next day, the 3rd, was my birthday, so my sister and I headed into Chicago and went to the Field Museum and Shedd Aquarium. So, above is a random picture of some jellyfish, which I thought was sort of cool. We also saw some penguins and I love me some penguins, so I was excited.
Then we went back to Anderson's bookstore for the Julianne Moore signing. She was signing copies of her picture books which are very cute. My sister teaches 3rd grade and she collects picture books, so she was pumped. Here's a pic of Julianne.
She read one of her books and answered questions from the kids. She was great. I'm so glad we went back for her signing.
Anyway, that's it from my mini-vaca. It was quick but awesome and now I have a ton of signed books. I wish more authors came to Kansas City. I did get to meet Stephenie Meyer last year, though, when the Host came out, so that's pretty huge. We need more author visits, though, KC loves authors too.
I'll be announcing my new contest sometime tomorrow, so come back and check it out!!
