Howdie!! I am back from my book signing with Cassandra Clare and Lisa McMann and I am still in awe. It is an amazing feeling to finally meet those authors that you truly admire and respect. I have been a big fan of Cassandra Clare for a few years and I must admit I was a bit of a dork in her presence, but she is so very nice and funny that I was soon at ease. My friend and I were invited to stay and talk with them both for a bit after the signing and we happily obliged. The fact that we drove almost 7 hours to see them both got us a bit of attention :)

Along with pictures of my adventure yesterday I will also post pictures of some items that will be given away during the contest. I did have a copy of City of Glass and Wake signed by their respective authors and I made some book marks and scrabble buttons.


This was the welcoming sign at Mrs. Nelson's toy and book shop. This place was absolutely amazing. I adored being there. The staff was helpful they had the best YA selection of books.
A great YA section with many yummy new titles.This was the set up for the authors
Upon entering this sign was posted
Table set up for Cassandra Clare
Table set up for Lisa McMann
Both authors came into the room, introduced themselves then read 10 mins worth from each of their works. Lisa McMann read from WAKE and Cassandra Clare gave us a choice of either City of Glass or her new project the Infernal Devices...EVERYONE picked the Infernal Device's teaser, which was awesome.
Here are some of the items I made. Book markers and scrabble pins with the Mortal Instrument's cast.
A close up of Clary and Jace
Chatting it up with Cassandra....
I have a few more pictures to upload from my friend's camera which shows the actual signed books for the contest.

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”

Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
