Have you been to an author signing?

I'm so looking forward to this weekend when I get to attend the local signing for Kimberly Karalius, author of LOVE FORTUNES AND OTHER DISASTERS.

I'm excited for a couple of reasons:

1) Kim's my friend.  (Lucky me!!!)

2) Her book is a Middle Grade novel and I can't wait to see enthusiastic young readers.

3) Authors are my rock stars. Need I say more?


Tell me Killer Friends: Have you been to an author signing? Who are your rock stars? Do you have autographed books? What else do you own that's autographed?



In the tradition of Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic, one girl chooses to change her fortune and her fate by falling in love.


Love is real in the town of Grimbaud and Fallon Dupree has dreamed of attending high school there for years. After all, generations of Duprees have successfully followed the (100% accurate!) love fortunes from Zita’s famous Love Charms Shop to happily marry their high school sweethearts. It’s a tradition. So she is both stunned and devastated when her fortune states that she will NEVER find love.
Fortunately, Fallon isn’t the only student with a terrible love fortune, and a rebellion is brewing. Fallon is determined to take control of her own fate—even if it means working with a notorious heartbreaker like Sebastian.
Will Fallon and Sebastian be able to overthrow Zita’s tyranny and fall in love?

Yay. That sounds like a fun signing and a fun book. I've never been to a book signing. Not that I wouldn't like to meet authors and have them sign my books, but I have a crowd thing. I do have a ton of signed books, but they all came to me through the mail or they were purchased used from some store. I found a signed copy of Jean Auel's Plains of Passage that way.

I don't think I've been to an author signing but I would definitely go! I think it would be lots of fun. I've been to author readings and enjoy those.

Authors are definitely my rock stars. Diana Gabaldon was signing books at a writing conference I was at last fall and the line-up was endless. I would have loved to grab one of her books and have her sign one but I didn't have the time to spend in line!

B.E. -- I think it's going to be a blast. I already got to see a couple of girls go up to her the last time we were at B&N. So cute!

Karyn -- I know what you mean. The lines at conferences are insane!!
