Book Signing Pics!

I had a great time last week at a book signing at the King's English in SLC. Here are a few photos from the event.

Here I am with Brodi Ashton, author of Everbound, book two in the Everneath series. She gave a hilarious presentation on world building AND revealed the title of book number three, but it's a secret. Hehe.




The spread at this signing was unbelievable. Dessert bar, sandwiches, veggies, drinks, and check out Brodi's Shop-n-Go. How awesome is that?




Here I am with Cynthia Hand, author of Boundless, the final installment in the Unearthly series. She shared with us her inspiration behind the settings in her books. Super cool.




But my favorite part about going to signings is getting to hang out with writer friends. We had such a blast that night. I think my sides are still hurting from laughing so hard.



Have you been to any book signings lately? What author would you absolutely love to meet?

I'll leave you with a song by The Airborne Toxic Event. Did you know Mikel Jollett, the lead singer, is a writer? Maybe one day I can rock the music world too...okay, maybe that's not All I Ever Wanted. :)

Ooh I love The Airbourne Toxic Event. My fav is 'Sometime around midnight'. I knew he was a writer, and with this one I think it shows. He really captures the emotion and feeling, and whenever I listen to it I have to turn it up and shut everything else out :)

And book signings are such good fun too...

Katie-Yes, thanks for inviting me. It was a blast.

Loving that shop and go! What an awesome idea. With all of the book stores closing around me, I am really sad about losing the opportunity to go there and meet all my favorite authors. BOO!

Glad you had a fun time. Looks like smiles all around- :)

And wouldn't you know, I happen to love this song!

You look adorable and like a girl who really knows how to throw an outfit together!

The last book signing I went to was with my kids and it was Brandon Mull and there was a mix up on the time and so he wasn't able to speak, just sign. A little disappointing. But we did get a picture with him and he was super nice to the kids.

Al Diaz said...

ilima said...

Jaybird-I know, right? Even B&N is on a closing streak. :(

Emily-Whoever came up with that outfit is a genius. ;)

Al-Thanks, I really did!
