BEA!!! Okay, I still haven't come down from my BEA high. This is seriously my favorite event. Why? Because I always get to hang out with really awesome writers and bloggers and publishing people. Man, I love my job.
So, here's a recap of my BEA 2014 experience:
First, check out the awesome Spencer Hill Press signing chart. (Do you see my name?)
And here I am signing The Monster Within ARCs. Photo courtesy of the very awesome Miss Dvora Gelfond.
Fellow horror writer Charles Day stopped by to get an ARC of The Monster Within.
I got really amazing triquetra necklaces for my book, which we raffled off in baskets and during the signing. I don't think I'm ever taking mine off. It's so pretty!
Brooke Delvecchio is one of the most adorable people ever. I love her.
Here I am with Richard Shealy, one of my copy editors.
Here I am with Jessica Porteous, Lisa Amowitz, and Elizabeth Langston.
My agency sister, Vicki Merkel, attended my signing.
Vikki Ciaffone is not my editor at SHP but I love her.
And I got to meet Eliza Tilton in person finally too! And I met J.A. Ward.
I also had a signing as Ashelyn Drake for my upcoming YA contemporary Perfect For You. Swoon Romance was awesome about getting people to stop by my booth to pick up signed postcards and talk about the book. I also had two amazing dancers (Yes, I said dancers.) bringing people in. A special thanks to Dorothy Dryer and Dan Cohen. You two are the best cheerleaders ever!
After knowing Rachel Harris online for years we got to meet in person!
Okay, and this has nothing to do with my signings or meeting people, BUT… I finally got to see Rick Riordan!!! Thank you to Dan Cohen for making sure I got a picture of Rick this time.
AND…I got Becca Fitzpatrick's new book! Yay! I'm so excited to read it. I loved the Hush, Hush series. I have to thank Dan Cohen for this one too because he totally snagged me a copy early and I didn't even have to wait in line.
I had to leave early on Saturday because the train schedule changed and we are having work done on our house and had to be home for it. I was sad to go and am already counting the days until BEA 2015!
