The past thirty days I have been most blessed to see some of my favorite authors. It all began with the wonderful Michelle Zink and then Malinda Lo, Kristin Cashore, Scott Westerfeld, Sarah Rees Brennan, James Dashner and Heidi Kling.
I wanted to thank all of them for being so gracious especially when I go all fan girl. Thanks also to my friends both old and new that have been constant companions on these events.
I had the most amazing time visiting with Michelle Zink, she is an amazing author and friend. I had the most awesome time seeing Sarah Rees Brennan and Scott Westerfeld on their book tour. Scott had a wonderful slide show presentation that was simply amazing.Kepler’s book store hosted the event and they made this tented entrace that demonstrated the belly of the beast.Scott Westerfeld and Sarah Rees BrennanThe lovely Sarah Rees Brennan is signing my bookSarah and Scott signing books for the many attendee’s Me and Kristin Cashore, yup I went all fan girl with her. She was a joy to listen to and meet. Kristin read a bit from Fire and then she demonstrated her writing notebook
