Dark Days Author Signing and author video interview

Yesterday was an amazing day!  I drove up to Seattle (I live in the Portland area) to see Kimberly Derting, Cynthia Hand and Ellen Schreiber.  Harper had asked me to be the live blogger and to tweet and video tape the event.  I also got to interview the authors before hand!  
My sister in law went with me, thank goodness!  It’s about a 3 hour drive and having someone with makes it go so much faster.
We got there early so I saw when Ellen and Cynthia arrived and I went over and told them I was Candace and that I was there to interview them.  The Borders people led us to a back room where I went ahead and set everything up while we waited for Kimberly to arrive.  When she got there we all greeted each other and sat for a minute talking before jumping into the interview.  I then did the interview with the questions you guys asked on here and I think they were pretty good!  
Here’s the interview~
Once I finished I said I’d see them out there and went out to the signing area which was now packed.  Borders had a reserved seat for me and had failed to tell me but luckily I had a seat in the front already filled with my stuff and it was perfect.  I sat up my video camera and commenced to record the event once they came out.  Unfortunately it’s going to take some work to get that video up but I’ll let you guys know once I do! In the meantime here’s more photo’s.
Here’s Ellen reading from Once in a Full Moon.
Cynthia reading from Unearthly.
Kim reading from The Body Finder.
Here’s Cynthia Hand, Ellen Schreiber, me and Kimberly Derting (I don’t like the me part of it but here’s the proof, I really was there!). 
The Giveaway:  
Harper has offered up one reader three signed books from these authors!  Unearthly, Once in a Full Moon and Desires of the Dead!  Since Desires isn’t out until February 15th they won’t be shipped until then.

  1. What a great interview. Sounds like it was a really fun event.

    I am in Canada so if I had to pick up book it would either be Unearthyly (Love the cover) or Desires of the Dead.


  2. That was a great interview, I’m jealous you got to go to such a great event. I wish they were doing the tour in AZ. Thanks for the awesome giveaway as well, I’m in the US.

  9. I just wanted to thank you for this great interview Candace !! I can’t enter this giveaway because I’m French but it’s really great, you’re really sweet !! These authors seem so nice and it’s a great opportunity that you have (you’re so lucky) !! Their books are in my pile, I really need to start reading them !! Thanks again for this interview!! The questions were awesome (so were the answers) !!

  10. Thanks so much for this giveaway! I so wish that I could meet all the authors, or at least some of them, but they’re to far of a drive sadly. But the interview was great! Thanks so much for that! It gave me a sense of how it would be if I could go. :)

  11. It looks like you had a blast at the signing! I wish the tour was coming closer to me, but this is the next best thing. The video interview is fantastic. I had no clue about how The Body Finder got its title and to hear Kim talk about it is funny.

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’m from the US
