During the Thanksgiving holiday, I got to do something I've never been able to do before. I got my wedding dress. Ok, that's not it. (Well I did but that's not the purpose of this post :)
I GOT TO GO TO MY FIRST AUTHOR SIGNING!!!!!
I went to the Harvest bookstore in Chesapeake, VA where Christy Barritt and Yvonne Ortega were signing their books!
Oh I was so geeked! This is the first time I've ever met an author in person and I got to meet two!
They both are from my hometown area. I've tried to go to one of Christy's signings before but I always had to cancel my plans at the last minute.
Both ladies were super nice and it was a pleasure to meet them both. It was wonderful to talk to them about their books and be able to finally meet them face to face. Both of them recognize me from my blog, which is awesome that famous people recognize me!!!
BTW we did quite a few bit of name dropping, including my fellow bloggers Relz@RelzReviews and Deena@A Peek at My Bookshelf! Both Christy and Yvonne said they love bloggers and they love the exposure we have given them.
Honestly, this was one of the coolest things I've ever done. I have so much respect and awe for writers and for me to meet one of my favorite Christian fiction authors was just awesome!
Be sure to pick up copies of both Christy's and Yvonne's books if you haven't already.
