Event Recap for Cinda Williams Chima signing

Last Saturday I went to book signing at Powells for Cinda Williams Chima.  Cinda is the author of the Seven Realms series as well as The Heir Chronicles.
I haven’t read The Heir Chronicles yet, but I have read the first two in the Seven Realms series and LOVE them!  They are absolutely awesome!  So when I had the chance to meet her I couldn’t pass it up.
It was on a Saturday so I got to go without kids and that’s a real treat for me.  I got there early and looked through books for an hour before they put chairs out.  Then I sat down right in the front row.
Vy from Vy’s Blog sat with me.  It was nice to have someone to chat with while we waited.  It was a lot of fun to talk books with her.  
When Cinda got there she chatted with us all without a podium.  She got down nice and close and got more personal and that was nice.  She showed us the trailer, which I had seen before and love, and she talked about how the books came about.  I love high fantasy and I think I like it even more in young adult because it’s not as heavy reading.   It was great hearing about her process and getting to know her better.  I’m so glad that there’s going to be another book in the Seven Realms!  Originally it was only suppose to be three, but I know I don’t want it to ever end! 
Once she read a scene from The Gray Wolf Throne she answered questions and then she signed books!  It was a lot of fun and it was a nice day away for me.  
Here’s a couple pictures of Cinda.

  1. I own all three books in the Heir series but I haven’t read them yet. I do enjoy fantasy elements in teen books though so I’m hoping I will love this series once I get around to it.

    If you love fantasy in teen because it is a little lighter than adult fantasy I would recommend Tamora Pierce’s writing. She really gives strong female leads that still have time for a little romance in each series she writes.

    I’m glad you had a great time at the signing!

  2. The Heir Chronicles and the Seven Realms both sound like really intersting series! I definitely have to keep an eye out for them, although I doubt they’re in Australia yet. How cool is it that you got to meet the author! So jealous! Thanks for the awesome post!
