My recent adventures in the book world

Hello and welcome!

allaccesspass.pngI am so happy that there are more book signings in my part of the world. I am ticking off names from my bucket list of authors I love and want to meet.

KallypsoCon-july15.jpg

I attended the KallypsoCon signing in Burlington, ON back in July, and only the signing on July 15th because the full eventΒ tickets were sold out like hot cakes.

I was so happy to finally meet Cherise Sinclair, Kallypso Masters & Lexi Blake SQUEEEE

I got to see again Ainsley Booth and meet her Frisky Beavers co-author Sadie Haller, she is such a sweetie, also got to see and hug again Cara Covington.

New authors for me were Julie Morgan, Sasha White, Ella Dominguez, Sierra Cartwright.

Of course I blew my budget again, but that is nothing new for me LOL

Bumped into a few friends, also authors who attended as readers. Thanks to Kayleigh who gave up her registration bag, I have a memento from the event, and I got it signed by the attending authors ❀

All in all was a good signing, despite being short for me, collected swag for you too. Keep on reading πŸ˜‰

Moving forward a few weeks which were filled with preparations for the Romancing the Capital in Ottawa, Canada, attended the 3-day event as a ‘bossy Elven helper’ to M. A. AbrahamΒ πŸ˜‰ this being her first signing and all. I think it went pretty good, she was a trooper and took everything in stride. It was a learning experience for both of us, that’s for sure. We as readers do not realize how much time, money, energy goes into preparing and delivering to a signing event. MY HATS OFF TO ALL THE AUTHORS. We participated in a few events, we dressed up for both dinners and the signing went off without a hitch. The only thing we forgot is our capes, but there is always next time πŸ˜‰

Got to wear a few t-shirts, one M. A. ordered for me with my love Loth, the Elven Warrior King and it says “I RATHER PLAY WITH LOTHRARIEL IN THE ELVEN EMPIRE”, and a couple of t-shirts I designed, one with my book boyfriends who came for a chat on this blog and one with my fave Eargasms voices. Alas the two I made, didn’t make it thru the wash so I have to come up with something more permanent.

I think I am still on a ‘high’ from the event. The generosity of the authors, the friendliness of the readers, the whole atmosphere is electrifying. Eve Langlais, despite promising that she will not do another event again, delivers every time. She is such an awesome hostess, thanking her & her minions, the sponsoring authors for another awesome event.

Meet Dreamy Eyes, a surprise from M. A., the dragon that accompanied me to the event and was my sidekick for one of the dinners when I dressed up as an Elven Dragon Rider. I received a goat from Kate Reedwood, too cute aaaaand I finally got my hands on the EveL Ducky SQUEEEE

I recently joined a group on FB called Aural Fixations, an awesome group of readers addicted to audiobooks (my wallet is terrified when I go to check out what the group has posted LOL), authors and narrators. So I made a sign/fan and got pictures with all the authors who have audiobooks so I can share with the group. I even gave away one audiobook CD set I won in Deborah Cooke’s event.

It was great seeing again authors I met in the past, Deborah Cooke, Zoe York, Sadie Haller, Ashlyn Chase, Opal Carew, Anne Lange, Carey Decevito, Viola Grace, Milly Taiden. Finally meeting ones that I love, more crossed off my bucket list πŸ˜€ Sarah Castille, Elle James, Susan Stoker. Discovering new ones, Cathryn Fox, Desiree Holt, Kristine Cayne, Susan Hayes, M. K. Eidem, Anna Markland, A. M. Griffin, Barbara Devlin, Sharon Page, Angela S. Stone, Sara Hubbard, Cat Johnson, Mandy Rosko, Lucy Farago, Amy Ruttan, Sheri Lyn, Cara Addison.

Made a few new friends, hugged old ones, it was like a big family reunion, without the drama of course LOL

bags.jpg

I have two bags filled with awesome swag & books from both events plus I raided my stash, I even found some extra t-shirts and would like to share the bounty with two readers, open to Canada and US. Here are the books, split between the two at random πŸ˜‰

books.jpg

Tell me which authors would you like to meet.
Can be any author, not just the ones listed here πŸ˜‰

Two names will be picked by Sexy Mr. Random after 3pm EST on Tuesday, August 29, 2017. GOOD LUCK!

Until next time read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!
