Becca Fitzpatrick & Elizabeth Miles


  I drove like a crazy woman to make this event on time and I'm so glad that I did. I was a bit shocked at the turnout- there was no seating left when I arrived and a secondary line had started 2 hours before I even got there. The event was at 7 and apparently there were some people who had been there since 3 that afternoon.

I love the feeling in the air at a book event. The excitement, everyone sharing their love for the same thing.

  It wasn't long too wait before I the authors came out, and it was at that time that my camera decided to go nuts. I could sometimes take a picture and sometimes not... My friend has all the pics I had taken with Elizabeth Miles on her phone, so as soon as she sends them to me, I'll post them here. 
        I also took some video footage below that you can also watch over at the Ontario Blog Squad Blog.

Elizabeth Miles author of Fury was fabulous! She was funny and you could tell how thrilled she was to be at the event. I truly adore her, and totally lost all ability to speak intelligently when I went up to meet her.

  1. Glad you had a good time!! I haven't been to very many author events, but the ones I've been to have been awesome. You're right, there's nothing quite like geeking out with other book lovers. ;)
