Time to recap!
So on Friday, I went to The Dark Days of Supernatural signing that was going on in Books & Books, my local indie in Coral Gables. I went about an hour early because I was going to be interviewing the authors (EEP! That video will be up tomorrow) so we started setting everything up and it was fantastic.
|Lauren Oliver & I!|
And then it was time for the actual event! The lovely JJ from JJ Reads was saving me a seat and so we waited for the authors to arrive. And they finally did!
|Claudia Gray & I !|
They each took a moment to explain their books and finally, we settled for the Q&A portion of the evening. People asked really good questions, a lot to Lauren Oliver, and someone almost spoiled the book! Thankfully most people didn't hear her or there would've been trouble!
|Dan Wells & I!|
I stayed for way too long talking to bloggers and the authors and finally, I went home!
Here is the TRANSCRIPT of my tweets during the event so you can see some of these authors being hilarious in action:
