Oh wait. That was me. I was fan girling.
How could I not?
These women have all written amazing books. They have created worlds that we are addicted to, and are far from stopping. They are living the dream. And getting to "spend" the evening listening to them brag about each others' work was more than a delight.
I think one of the greatest parts of book signings is meeting the authors. We fall in love with their work. With their characters and worlds and unfinished resolutions. But then we get the chance to meet the authors, and find they are just as awesome if not more so than those books we adore. They are people. Talented, funny, book obsessed people. And the world doesn't feel as big anymore.
I like to pretend they are all my best friends. That isn't too weird, right?
(Hey Ann, you did admit we are BFFs and have dinner together every night. It is so true...)
Now I have a stack of pretty signed books. Some I have read already. Some are waiting to be devoured. And of course I grabbed a nice stack of swag. Do you sense a swag giveaway in the future?
Thank you ladies, not only for the book signing event, but for creating these wonderful works of art! I cannot wait to see what each of you have in store next. And I hope I get to run into you again soon!
