On Monday, I went to my first book signing! I am telling you right now - I. HAD. SO. MUCH. FUN! But I'm getting ahead of myself here. First I should tell you what authors I had the honor of meeting. Well, I met Elizabeth Eulberg (Take a Bow, Lonely Hearts Club, Prom & Prejudice), Maggie Stiefvater (The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy, The Scorpio Races, Lament, Ballad, I hope I got them all! If I didn't - sorry, Maggie!), and Siobhan Vivian (The List, Not That Kind of Girl, A Little Friendly Advice, Same Difference). Oh, and it was moderated by David Levithan. Yeah, THE David Levithan. I refuse to list his books because I am positive I won't get them all. He wrote three with Rachel Cohn, though - Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, Naiomi & Ely's No Kiss List, and Dash & Lily's Book of Dares. Yes, I have read all three of these. And, yes, I love them all.
Now back to the signing! These authors were so funny! You could tell they were all good friends. Everyone in that room had a good time, I'm sure. We laughed, we gasped, we listened. We found out some odd things about some cool authors. Examples - Siobhan is always sweaty. Okay. Hehe. Elizabeth was born perfect and shiny. Double okay. Maggie was born awesome and finds joy out of torturing her characters. Yes! Actually, Elizabeth admitted to having fun with torture, too. It was not only Maggie. The point here: my first signing was an ideal experience. Seriously, I am still smiling.
After the authors talked, I got in line to get my books signed. I got only two books. Take a Bow by Elizabeth and Not That Kind of Girl by Siobhan.
