Last week I went to Alexa Martins signing on the release day of Girl Wonder. It was a blast and besides getting my own copy signed, and getting to meet Alexa, I got to see a bunch of other authors as well!
Lisa Schroeder, Suzanne Young, Inara Scott, Laini Taylor and April Henry were all there. It was great to see them again!
This was the first time Alexa had seen Girl Wonder on the shelves and her first signing EVER! So when she's super famous I can say I was there for her very first signing ;)
I had to bring my kids along but luckily they know Lisa Schroeder a bit and she kept my daughter entertained by drawing with her. I seriously was so grateful! My baby was a bit crabby, but he really didn't do so bad. Plus Laini Taylor sat by us and her daughter kept him entertained at least a little bit of the time (she's so cute!). Here's a picture of Suzanne Young and Laini Taylor with her daughter. Isn't it a great picture?
|Overall it was a fantastic time and I got some fabulous books. I got Girl Wonder, of course, and then Wake Unto Me by Lisa Cach because she'd been there recently and there were signed copies. I also got A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly cause there was an inexpensive used copy and it was on my wishlist. Now I can't say go buy Girl Wonder cause it's amazing, cause I haven't read it yet, but I can say that Alexa was pretty awesome, so buy it for that reason!|
