Dark Days of Summer Event

Dark Days of Summer Event
in Portland Oregon


I was waiting for this event for months and I am so happy that I took the 3 hour trip down with my friend. This event didn't disappoint at all. Well I only wish that Josephine Angelini had been at this event location, that is the only thing that would be made it even better.

Many of the questions asked can also be found searching through their websites under the Q&A section. Number of books in the series, when will the next book be published and some other like those.

The now popular "Are your books being optioned for movies yet?" (Answers are summarized)
Aprilynne stated that Disney (? or summit) has bought the rights to the movie and they are currently in the process of rewriting the script. Which is a big deal in the production world.
Veronica's book rights were bought by summit

"If you could pick an ideal cast who would you choose?"
Amy: I would like them to be unknown french actors
Aprilynne: If  AnnaSophia Robb was a little younger she has the best look and she is a fantastic actress
Ellen: Would like a young Johnny Depp, since that is who she based her characters looks off of
Veronica: Also wants a young Johnny Depp to play Four

All the questions were answered by each author, unless a specific question was asked to a particular one. I just couldn't remember all of the answers. I guess I should have recorded it, maybe next time I will.

On this trip I got to meet my fellow blogger Jennifer from Little Shelf and she is so awesome! It was great to finally meet another blogger in person. 
You should check out her posting on this event as well. Her photos are much better than mine, she has a much better camera. Also the huge window made it really hard to take good photos.

This is the stack of books I brought with me to go get signed. Divergent, Hereafter, Spells, Illusions and Die for Me are all my copies, the other 2 Die For Me are gifts and the top 2 wings and spells are my sister's copies.

The day after this event I went to Alyson Noel's book signing. I will be posting about this event a little later. I'm behind on my blogging.

I love multi author book events
