I heart book signings

Oh yeah! This is how I spent my Tuesday night:

Q&A panel at Provo library with four YA authors.
Crit partner Katie talking with BLOOD RED ROAD author Moira Young:
Her novel has been optioned by Ridley Scott...super cool. And she writes for 7 hours a day in a dark room with ear plugs. And oh yeah, the room is down the street from her home in the back of a salon. Too funny.

Here I am with hilarious Elana Johnson, author of POSSESSION:
Elana writes behind her piano in a spot hidden from the front door (so no one can see the chaos). She blasts music on her headphones to drown out the kids when she's working. I love hearing about how other moms write.

And here is Becca Fitzpatrick, author of the HUSH HUSH saga.
She announced that there would be a fourth book in the series. I even came home with a signed poster of SILENCE complete with a sexy shirtless picture of Patch. Ooh la la. (Husband LOVED it, by the way :)

Michelle Hodkin, author of THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER:
There's been a lot of hype about this one in the YA world and I am excited to read it. Of course, its the first piece of fiction she's ever written, period. Jealous...

Fun fun girls night out!

So jealous. This puts my night with Stephanie Perkins and Maureen Johnson to shame!

I love hearing the 'behind the words' stories. It makes them seem, well, human.
