Time to recap! 

Claudia Gray

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!
Of course, because it was ME doing the interviewing, there was some minor technical difficulties. As in, my camera had a mental breakdown in the middle of the interview and I wanted to faint dramatically from how embarrassed I was! Haha. But all three authors were gracious and lovely so we thought things resolved and it went off without another hitch!

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 !
Claudia Gray went first and since I've met her three times, I already knew how hilarious she was. But then came Dan Wells and I had NO idea how funny he was! And he's SUPER funny. Finally, Lauren Oliver came on and I swear, she is one of the sweetest people I've never met, it was so nice.

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!
After that, it came time for signing and there was a long line to wait. Us bloggers all shuffled to the back because I prefer it since I don't feel rushed into not being able to talk to them because I know there are people waiting behind me.

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:
