October 8th - Make sure and pull out all my books I need to get signed so I don't forget any of them.
*The bottom one is Shannon's and she will kill me if I forget it.*
October 9th - Day of the signing!
1) Put on something cute so you can impress Maggie. Check.
*Ignore the goofy grin, my co-worker made me say fuzzy pickles*
2) Meet Kimberly for dinner before the event. Check.
3) Drive to The King's English for a blogger sit down with Maggie. Check.
*Squee! That is her chair and it's right next to mine.*
This is the part where we got to chit chat with Maggie about life, books, cars, facial hair, ley lines, kids, book covers, authors, Captain Underpants, being famous, angst, emo characters, skinny jeans and more.
*Maggie and I before the signing*
A BIG thanks to Rachel H. at The King's English for putting this together and for saving us front row seats at the event. You rock!
4) Head over to the gallery so the event can begin. Check.
5) Maggie entertains the crowd with funny stories about researching ley lines, traveling and "boat shoes".
6) Maggie grabs a brave soul from the audience (Maddie) to assist her with an interpretive reading from page 60 of The Raven Boys.
7) Then it's back to the bookstore for the actual signing of books.
*Kimberly & I snap a pic together while waiting in line*
(In case you didn't know, Kimberly is one of the lovely bloggers from The Broke and the Bookish)
8) Impromptu book purchase at the event. Maggie told me The Scorpio Races is her favorite book she's written so far. So it seemed only logical that I had to get a copy.
Well that is my wrap-up in pictures. I'm sure other bloggers will have far better written posts about the evening so I figured I would just share my pictures with you.
Maggie was funny, entertaining, honest and just plain awesome. Authors truly are my rock stars! If you have the chance to meet her, don't walk, run to your nearest signing. You won't be disappointed.
