With hockey season over, this summer is starting off the right way, with lots of books. Yes, I’m an avid reader and this summer, not only do I have more time to read, but I get to hang out with a lot of great authors, too! Let the Summer of Authors begin.
I kicked off my Summer of Authors Monday night with Richelle Mead at her book signing for The Golden Lily here in Santa Monica, and so thankful, too, as it almost didn’t happen. While in the middle of a seven city tour, she caught a bug and her son broke his arm. Ah, the life of a working (author) mother! But I digress…
A brief recap: Richelle opened her session by greeting her fans then reading a scene from her new book The Golden Lily, where characters Sydney and Adrian are preparing to take a self-defense class in Palm Springs. The fans were captivated, myself included. She then took the time to answer fan questions before signing books and posing for pictures. I love how personable and approachable she is!
And to know her work a bit better, Richelle Mead is known for the Georgina Kincaid Series, Dark Swan Series, Vampire Academy Series, and Bloodlines Series. For more information about her, check out her website at www.richellemead.com.
The rest of June seems to be a quite month, only one more signing to see Leigh Bardugo in Redondo Beach. July will be filled with Comic-Con in San Diego and the National Romance Writers of America Conference in Anaheim. August will be fun as well as I’m attending Authors After Dark in New Orleans.
Look for additional updates throughout the summer!
Who are your favorite authors? And, what questions would you like to ask them?
How cool! As an author myself, I’m always interested in what’s going on with other authors. What a great post! Thanks!
Authors are such amazing people. Maybe we should chat!
One of my favorite authors is Nick Hornby. I was excited when I got to see him speak about his new book in Los Angeles. I didn’t ask a question, but other people asked for me. It seems we are all interested in the same things, his musical taste and how long it takes him to write a book.
One great thing about authors is that they are so personable and entertaining.
Getting to connect with an author is so much fun! A signing give us a glimpse into their world.
I am much more interested in book authors than sports stuff! LOL
