While everyone raced off to get Clockwork Angel ( I went a bit later) I wandered around for a bit. And then started my day off with some signings at the Harlequin booth.
Other highlights of the day included:
Meeting three of the authors from Trickster a graphic novel of Native American tales.
Meeting Gretchen Rubin the author of the Happiness Project which I just adore!
Finally getting to meet Beth Kephart in person, she's just as sweet in person as she is online!
Also getting to meet Penelope Przekop for the first time in person as well, I really enjoyed her book Aberrations! It was a day of semi-reunions I guess!
Getting a Glee t-shirt promoting the upcoming book, which I've already posted about!
Here's what I picked up that day (click to enlarge):
After shipping our boxes from that day, Gail and I headed downstairs for the Book Blogger Convention Reception. It was a really fun event when I got to meet a lot of people for the first time including Lisa Roe the online publicist, Chelsey and Dina from Big Honcho Media, and author Maria Marnane who's book Perfect on Paper I LOVE! We chatted with a lot of authors and publicists and other industry professionals.
I was given the pictured books (below) by one of the authors there.
Leaving it was sad to see all the BEA signage going down but we went on our way. For dinner we had pizza with Erica from the Book Cellar! I literally had like 6 business cards left so Gail had the great idea for me to try and make some of my own which I did after we bought me some poster board and scissors. I didn't end up needing as many as I made for the next day but it was nice knowing I had some if I needed them. And of course since the trip was coming to an end we had to get Pinkberry one last time!
