Blog 57 - Jennifer L. Armentrout Signing in Orlando!
I wanted to share with you my adventures of my second book signing. This signing was for the author Jennifer L. Armentrout and her book Obsidian! In the picture to the right, I was having two copies of Obsidian signed. Not only was it signed by the author but also the book cover model Sztella and Pepe. Which was really awesome! I also got to pass out a few of my mini business cards to the authors assistant in the striped shirt. :)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Date: June 13, 2012
City: Orlando, FL
Bookstore: Barnes and Noble
I was told by friend and fellow blogger/writer Sarah Nicolas about this signing. She actually had a Facebook event setup for it. I decided to go to this one as well to see if every signing event is the same. It turns out that they are similar but not the same. This signing had the author (of course), the book cover models, and a publisher/senior editor. There were definitely a lot of teens there as most schools are out for the summer. They started the signing with a little bit of information on the book, followed by a Q & A session, then we did the book signing portion. If you wanted pictures then you would have to wait until everyone got their books signed, but that was okay with me. While I waited for the picture taking session, I went and purchased my books, and was able to also get the fourth and final book in the Fallen series by Lauren Kate, Rapture. It came with an exclusive poster.
I believe I was one of the last people to get my picture taken with them. But that's okay. I don't mind at all. Afterwards I was sitting with Sarah Nicolas and her sister Kayelee. My husband went with me to Orlando and he wasn't ready to go I guess. I soon found out that he was up to something. After a few minutes I found out what he was up to. He was getting me this:
I was also able to get some book swag that the author had sitting out on the table for us to pick up as we were getting our books signed. The picture below shows the things I was able to get from the table. She had postcards, bookmarks, even guitar picks. There were two different colors of guitar picks, purple and red.
I would say that this book signing was a success. I had some fun at this signing. I look forward to more signings for this author or other authors in the future. I'm hooked! :)
You should definitely check out Jennifer L. Armentrout's book Obsidian. Though I haven't started reading it yet, just reading the synopsis it sounds good. I will be reading and reviewing it soon!
Until next time, Happy Reading!
P.S. Keep your eyes open I will be doing a giveaway soon!
