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!).
