(scroll down for the giveaway)Today I was checking out my twitter feed and noticed both Jennifer Nielsen and Jessica Day George tweeting about an event at my local Barnes & Noble, their 2013 Authorpalooza. The event website said it would have over 30 authors and if you have learned anything from this blog, I love me some book signings.
I found out at 11am and got to the store at 12pm, too bad the event didn't start until 1. After wandering around the store I finally got to join the lines for the signing. There were so many authors but no sense of a line, it was a free for all. I got pictures!
I also got a ridiculous amount of books, more than I should have, and I got to talk to a bunch of really nice authors! I was super excited that both James Dashner and Jennifer Nielsen recognized me from previous signings!
Several authors were super nice when they heard about my blog, Cindy C. Bennett, author of Rapunzel Untangled, even wrote down my blog address to check it out later. Again, super excited!
And now for pictures:
Sadly, I only took the pictures at the very beginning so its not nearly as busy and lacks a lot of authors in the pictures.
GIVEAWAYI am doing my first ever giveaway. But this depends on you, the reader.
At Authorpalooza I got two signed, but not personalized books, along with a bookmark. The books are Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George and Maze Runner by James Dashner. The bookmark is signed by Erik Olsen.
So here are the rules:
1) One entry per person.
2) Limited to U.S. and Canada, I can't afford international shipping currently.
3) This is all dependent on the comments section.
4) Please keep in mind that I will need to be able to contact you if you are a winner.
And this is how it goes.
This contest will run for two weeks. The winners will be selected on March 15th.
The numbers will be made off of the number of unique comments. As in, one comment per person!
At 10+ unique entries I will draw for the Erik Olsen bookmark.
At 20+ unique entries I will draw for Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
At 30+ unique entries I will draw for Maze Runner by James Dashner
If I don't reach those numbers then I will save the remaining prizes for another giveaway.
Edit: I really want to respond to all your lovely comments, but I'm not currently because I want to keep the comments just for entries, to make the giveaway easier down the road.
