Supernatural Summer tour stop in Dallas

My friend Jennifer and I decided to make the trip to Dallas for the Supernatural Summer tour stop. It was a long four hour drive (there and back) but it was so worth it to be able to meet Kim Harrison, Ellen Schreiber, Aprilynne Pike, and Kimberly Derting! These ladies were super nice and funny! I'd drive eight hours to see them again in a heartbeat. I'm always amazed when I meet honest-to-goodness published authors and see that they're really normal (Well, as normal as us writerly types can be!) people like you and me. I'm always a little humbled to meet authors who have gotten published authors who honestly love what they do and are so down-to-earth. It makes me smile and helps me realize there may be hope for me one day, too.

Here's a few pictures from the Q&A and signing I wanted to share:












Sadly, I do not have signed books to give away. I simply couldn't afford to buy extra books. I'm super bummed about this, and I am sorry, dear readers. However, I did pick up some extra swag to give away! *muppet arms*

I have one signed poster of The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting, as well as a flower button and flower bracelet from Aprilynne Pike to give away to one of YOU. *more muppet arms*

I had a family emergency and had to go out of town unexpectedly, so I've extended the contest. It will now end on Monday June 14th at Midnight CST!.
