This past Saturday I spent the day at the Atlanta Author Occasion. It was absolutely amazing to spend hours with like-minded people who love reading as much as I do and whom are as book crazy as me. I was lucky enough to be Karina Halle’s assistant during the signing. It was a dream come true to hang out with my favorite author, my idol. I can’t tell you how awesome it was to be able to ask her questions and watch her interact with the fans that stopped by her table. Karina was so genuine and so sweet and so smart. I adore her even more now that I have actually met her.
After the signing was over I met up with some ladies from Alessandra Torre’s fan group for cocktails. I have not laughed as much in a month compared to how much I laughed at this get together. Alessandra shocked us all when she told us how she actually sex cammed for a few days as research for Girl in 6E. I also finally got to meet my pal Julie from Little Read Riding Hood blog. That girl was a hoot, and she had the entire group ROFL.
Lastly, I caught up with Krista and Becca Ritchie (authors of the Addicted series) and fans for dinner. If you haven’t read these girls’ work you need too. Their writing style is exceptionally good. Anyway, this was their very first author signing ever and they were absolutely giddy with excitement. It was a very successful day for them. They told us a little about some upcoming projects they are working on, and I can’t wait to read what they have coming up.
I came home that night with a stack of books, a tote bag full of swag, and a memories I will cherish forever.
