Girls' Nightmare Out Tour

Tour by Tor
at Third Place Books
on August 23, 2012

Kendare Blake of Girl of Nightmares
Lisa Desrochers of Last Rite
also joining the Seattle stop Amanda Hocking of Wake
Marta Acosta of Dark Companion

Before the event blogger Benji set up a dinner with Kendare, Lisa, Marta, a local publicist, me and blogger Rachel. Traffic was terrible at 5pm of course and all of us bloggers were late. Rachel wasn't even able to make it at all, so sad. The rest of us had a lot of fun though, it was nice just to talk to the authors about anything. We talked about The Hunger Games, things that scare us etc. It was a blast and I would love to do it again with another group of authors. Being a blogger has some fun perks. 

Leading the discussion was Bill Kenower from Author Magazine where he does interviews with authors called Author2Author. He was a bit late so initially the event was started off with one of the Third Place Books event coordinators leading the discussing and then being passed off to Bill for the remainder of the time.

We did a fun author blogger photo, all the authors put a hand on one of our shoulders, it was entertaining

Another fun event, they keep on getting more and more fun the more bloggers I'm able to meet and chat with at the event.

It was so fun wasn't it? And the authors were amazing, no?
