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.
