Yesterday was so much fun! The NOLA Author Event was definitely a hit! Getting to meet all these incredible authors was such an amazing opportunity! My left shoulder hurts from carrying around a big ol’ tote around, but it was definitely worth it. I, of course, took some pictures with some of my favorite authors, so I can’t wait to show them off!
First off, I got my picture taken with this lovely lady! My friend can attest to how excited I was to meet the wonderful Colleen Hoover. Seriously. It was a treat! Plus she signed my books–which I bought just for that occasion!
Next is a picture I took with the lovely Karina Halle, author of the Sins & Needles trilogy. Her next book, Love, In English, is one that I’m greedily anticipating!
That’s Mia Asher, author of Arsen. She’s way prettier in person!
And last but not least, Penelope Douglas, author of the Fall Away series! Do yourself a favor and like her on Facebook. The random conversations she posts between her and her hubs are hilarious!
So meeting all these lovely ladies, as well as others (I just didn’t get pictures with anyone else [too many people in the way!]) was pretty awesome! And all the swag I got? Well that was pretty much the icing on the cake. I tried to take a picture of all the bookmarks, postcards, etc. that I got so take a look! (please excuse my shoes on the side!)
Here’s a close up of that:
See now, why my shoulder hurts so much? All that was carried in this lovely tote I got quite a few authors to sign.
Anddddd this right here! Thank you, Anne Eliot for that free copy of Almost!
And lastly, I have to give a big thank you to all the ladies at Beauty, Brains & Books for hosting such a great event and all the people who volunteered! This event wouldn’t have been possible without them.
