In My Mailbox: 10/25/09

In My Mailbox lets you peek into the contents of my mailbox on a weekly basis. I am listing all the lovely books that I have aquired this week. If you would like to participate and have your own “In My Mailbox” post, you can find more information here on the Story Siren's blog, where it all began..(This post was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie
This Week I have recieved a few items from authors and I attended a debut book signing for a local bay area author.

To start of this week, I won The Naughty List contest hosted by Suzanne Young. The prize package included a signed copy (ARC) of The Naughty List and then cool canvas bag with the book cover posted on it. A few book marks, post cards and stickers and even a mirrored key chain. How strawberry smoothie is that? Totally cool and thank you, so much Suzanne :)
Next, I recieved this great music magazine and cool buttons from Yvonne Prinz on the VINYL Princess website HERE

Her YA book The Vinyl Princess will hit the shelves on December 22, 2009. She is also another SF bay area author . How super cool is that? I am so excited to have such great talent so close to home.

I also attended a book signing for another local debut YA author, Nina LaCour. The event was hosted at the Diesel bookstore in Oakland and it was packed, standing room only. I had a very enjoyable time and it was wonderful to be a part of something so important to an author. Nina, was more than gracious and warm and I wish her much success.

DON'T FORGET THIS IS THE LAST WEEK FOR MY ZOMBIE CONTEST HERE
