Time to recap Day #3 from BEA 2014
So I forgot to include this one yesterday and I just love how it came out so I have to post it here!
Me with my author Jennifer Murgia (and her book Forest of Whispers to be published September 9, 2014) and author Rajdeep Paulus
D'vora and I waiting on line to get into BEA for day #3. There was a very special reason that I just had to be one of the first people in that day!
Abrams was giving away copies of Unhinged (Splintered #2) by A.G. Howard! But the best part was this...
That's A.G. HOWARD! And she gave me a HUG! It was so amazing meeting her! I have been a fan for a long time and we've been chatting on Facebook since before Splintered was published. I was SUPER excited to meet her for sure!
Ok, D'vora got to meet her, too! LOL!
After meeting Anita, we booked it to the Spencer Hill Press booth where my author, A.R. Kahler, was signing copies of his book Martyr (to be published in October 2014).
It was my first time meeting Alex in person (we had only Skyped and emailed). He is super duper sweet and I wanted to take him home in my pocket!
We went to the Cora Carmack and Jennifer L. Armentrout signing at RWA. JLA was waiting to sit so she came up to the line and we were chatting. Of course D'vora had to take the stalker picture!
We made our way back to SHP where we bumped into Amalie Howard (you all know how much I adore her) and she introduced us to Dawn Metcalf (who I have been DYING to meet!). Dawn had this really cook bag with Yiddish words all over. So of course the three Jews had to take a picture with it!
Then it was time for D'vora to say goodbye as she had to get home for Shabbos.
Had to snap pictures of Lego Chewy and Bobbafet for my kids!
I stalked A.G. Howard a bit more at Books of Wonder with my most awesome sister-in-law and co-blogger Crystal. Then we went to an Irish pub where we drank much yummy Smithwick's and had a most awesome Chicken Pot Pie.
Friday was a LONG day! But so much fun. Tomorrow I'll give you my final thoughts on BEA 2014!
By final thoughts I'm sure you mean your rant on how much of a fire hazzard it was to be at BookCon? Haha I'm still jealous you got into the A.G. Howard signing the first day. :)ReplyDelete
LMAO! Zach, you do know me so well (well, that and we talked about it after that stupid anxiety/panic attack I had! LOL). You should have met us in line the first day. Next year, we shall team up every day and conquer!Delete
OMG sooooo many authors!! Who DIDN'T you meet? LOL :P . But seriously I'm jealous you got A.G. Howard to sign!! LOL loved D'vora's stalker photo with Jennifer :D ! Seeing all these wonderful pics, just makes me more determined to make it with Bieke to BEA next year!!ReplyDelete
Ha, I met so many more and didn't take any pictures! But there were authors I didn't get to meet and I was sad about that. I just could not brave the lines. I was SO excited about Anita. She was the one and only author I HAD to meet. I hope you guys get there next year. How much fun would that be???Delete
