3 Author Book Signing and Contests

The 3 author book signing went well today. I got a total of 6 books signed, 4 were my copies, 1 was my sisters and the last 1 was is going to be a birthday gift for my cousin.

Kimberly Derting
 Ellen Schreiber
 Cynthia Hand

Were all really cool and I hope that I they will be coming back to WA again when they tour.
Learned that Cynthia Hand will have 3-4 books for her new series, working on book 3 and finishing up with editing book 2 and the other two, I don't remember if they gave a number, Ellen did say she is now contracted for book 8 and 9 for the Vampire Kisses series and she is working on the next book for the series. Kimberly said some new information about her books will be released next month, I'm guessing around the time of her next book on February 15th.
Next book signing will be for Cherie Priest on her new urban fantasy book "Bloodshot" which I was able to get a hold of an ARC, I really liked it. It was a good change from romance and just a lot of action, smart ass comments, sleuthing, thievery and evading the government.

A few contests that I have found are:
Courtney Allison Moutlon author of Angelfire out 2/15/11 has a contest up for ARC's of the books

Ilona Andrews is having a contest of cover flats of the next book

Claudia Gray is giving away a signed paperback set of the 1st 3 books in the "Stargazer" series

Copy of the Evermore and Radiance

An artistic competition for the signed "Iron King" series
