Author Signing: YAllapalooza!

I was lucky enough to attend this fabulous event hosted by Changing Hands bookstore in Tempe, AZ. Phoenix is so blessed when it comes to indie bookstores and author signings. Between Changing Hands and Poisoned Pen, I've met so many fantastic authors. This event was one of those times where I met some fantastic authors! Here's the panel of authors (in a crappy picture because the sun behind them made all pictures so dark!):

From Left to Right: Aprilynne Pike, Adam Rex, Bree Despain, Anna Carey, Kiersten White, Cecil Castelucci, James A. Owen, CJ Hill/Janette Rallison, Robin Brande, Amy Fellner Dominy, and Tom Leveen.

It was a really fun time! I didn't visit all the authors, but I did get autographs from the following: Anna Carey, Kiersten White, Bree Despain, Adam Rex, Tom Leveen, Robin Brande, and Amy Fellner Dominy. And I got pictures with a few too! Here they are:

This time I met another blogger! Her name is Shanan. We didn't get to chat that much, but it was a good time! Again I met up with Jenny and Kaitlin from Books to the Sky! They're such fab ladies. Kaitlin just got back from ALA and brought home lots of stuff, including brand new blog bookmarks!! They're so awesome. Glad I got one!! :o) The always lovely Audra came with me as well, and we all took a picture at the end with our signed stuff!

It was a pretty great time. Thanks again to all the authors for answering our questions and signing our books, and thanks to Changing Hands for hosting the event and providing pizza! Can't wait for the next awesome event!!
