YA Author Extravanganza signing Part 2, The videos! And a swag giveaway :)

Hello everyone!  A few days ago I shared my experience, and my pictures, from the YA Author Extravanganza signing at Third Place Books (Seattle area).  I promised some video and this post is it!  If you didn’t see Part 1 I encourage you to do so.  There are awesome pictures and I share details about the whole signing.   You can find that post HERE.
Now here’s the video I took.  It starts out with the authors talking about their books and what inspired them to write what they did.  Then the second and third video is where they answer questions.  I know it’s a lot of video but I split it up so that they would load faster and so you guys can split up your time watching them if you’d like.
I also apologize for the shaking.  I was trying to take pictures at the same time and at times my arm was getting tired.  I totally should have brought my tripod!

The Giveaway:
I’m giving away a swag pack of goodies from the signing.  This includes a couple postcards from Eileen Cook, bookmarks from Cat Patrick and a Forgotten preview booklet, and bookmarks and a sticker from Kimberly Derting.  If the winner is from the US I’ll also throw in the Jelly Belly’s I got from Lisa Schroeder for The Day Before.   The Giveaway is open internationally.  Just remember to include contact info in the comments. I’ll leave it open through 8/10/2011.
Thanks for subscribing!
