Book Signing Fun!!

I love book signings. There's just something special about meeting authors and hearing their thoughts and stories, whatever they want to share. I've learned about their insight into their books and characters, their journeys to writing, their inspirations, their hang-ups, their advice, their jokes, and so much more. My eldest son loves attending with me, even though he hasn't read most of the books of the authors we meet. He's my book signing buddy and has already met lots of authors. My younger two sons usually only attend children's author events.

The last two weeks provided us with the opportunity to attend three book signings, with a total of nine authors. Here's a little glimpse at our fun. I realize I'm fortunate to live near a large metropolis with many opportunities, but if you get a chance to attend a signing and meet some authors, I highly recommend it. And bring your kids along, too.

Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, Tahereh Mafi, & Veronica Rossi.
Both Tahereh & Veronica remembered me from a year ago, and Veronica remembered my son. They were so nice and friendly.

Tahereh Mafi - She is just stunning.

Andrea Cremer, Marie Lu, Brenna Yovanoff, & Jessica Khoury.
We learned that Brenna & Jessica were homeschooled, which is of particular interest to me, since I homeschool my kids. All these ladies were very entertaining.

Ally Carter with my son. She was so sweet to him. And she had wonderful audience interaction.


  1. That's so really awesome Jenny! I wish I could go a book signing one day!
    Yay for Tahere!

  2. That's awesome!!! I'm so happy that you were remembered and got to go to a signing! 8)

  3. So jealous! I've met some of these authors but I really want to meet Tahereh! Happy you got remembered, thats the best feeling ever :).
