What a fabulous way to spend an afternoon. I was unable to attend the entire AUTHORS AFTER DARK conference but was lucky enough to go to the open to the public author signing this afternoon. So much talent in one room was a little overwhelming. Camera in one hand and two very packed bag full of books on each shoulder I had a list of fabulous ladies I wanted to meet and set out to do just that.
Meljean Brook signed all my books of her Guardian Series and the Iron Duke. She also signed her novellas in Must Love Hellhounds and Burning Up. She was amazing to meet.
Larissa Ione is still a new author for me with only reading the first book Pleasure Unbound but I loved it so know the rest of her series will be great. I had two copies of Ecstacy Unveiled so I got one signed for me and one for a lucky followed.
Anya Bast signed my copy of Hot for the Holidays that has her prequel story for her Dark Magick Series. It shows lots of promise for her book series.
Sylvia Day is one of my favorite romance authors and she signed my copy of Pleasures of the Night which makes me hope to meet a hot guy in my dreams. She was so nice.
I met for the second time Judi Fennell. The first time I met her was at the Collingswood book festival where she introduced me to her mermaid trilogy. I got her first book then and shortly after had to buy the second and third. I had to know if the other two Tritone girls were going to get a story of there own. Judi said yes but when and how they will be published is still in the works. But at least I know I can look forward to more underwater adventures.
Nancy Holzner signed the second book in her Deadtown series, Hellforged. She was super cool to talk too even though she said her editor wants her writing the 4th book I enjoyed meeting her.
It was a nice surprise to see Dakota Cassidy there. I didn’t realize she was going to be one of the authors in attendance so I had to buy Accidentally Catty which I haven’t read yet but I like the other stories in the series. One of my favorite meeting was with Caridad Pineiro. In her Sins of the Flesh book the villian in the book lived in my home town, Marlton. I had such a fun time laughing with her. It was a blast.
The reason I knew about AUTHORS AFTER DARK was because of the blogging done by Stella and Audra Price. She was one of the bubblist authors I met. She was so nice to me and I got to buy one of her books from her. I read the synopsis off her website and got a signed copy of Sugar and Sin: A Tale of the Eververse. I can’t wait to read it. She said I made her day but really she made mine.
One author I met was Lara Adrian known for her Midnight Breeds which has been on my TBR pile but I haven’t got to read them yet. I know I will love them so she signed two of her Midnight Breeds book I had.
Karin Harlow was really awesome. I loved her first book Enemy Lover and she signed it for me. I can’t wait to read the second book Enemy Mine. She even gave me goodies including a mug to drink my hot chocolate while I read.
Jess Haines signed her novella from Nocturnal that is apart of her Others series. I have her first book on my kindle buy that doesn’t make signing it easy. So as I said above I have a signed copy of Larissa Ione’s Ecstacy Unveiled. If you would like a chance to win it do the following.
