Author Event Recap + Giveaway: Becca Fitzpatrick, Elizabeth Miles & Moira Young | Reading & Signing

About a month ago, I got the opportunity to meet author's Becca Fitzpatrick (Hush, Hush saga) Elizabeth Miles (Fury) and Moira Young (Blood Red Road.) It was an awesome event to attend at one of my local B&N stores. We arrived a little late (the boyfriend & I) so we had to sit all the way in the back. My boyfriend was nice enough to stand the entire time though so he could get some pictures of all the ladies talking.

All three planned to read from their books, but since Becca figured maybe a good chunk of the crowd might not have read the second or third books in her saga (and she was right!) she told us a sweet story on how one of the scenes was inspired from her teen years. Pretty funny stuff that involves a hot dog and peer pressure :)

Elizabeth did read from Fury and it sounds like such a creepy book! I definitely need to get to reading that. I bought the HC of the book even though I had an ARC copy, so one day when I read and review Fury, I will have a signed ARC to give away, yay! :)

Moira told us how she was an actress and a few other things before deciding to write, so when she read from Blood Red Road it was so awesome. She "acted" out some of it by changing voices and moving around a bit. It was such an intense scene too; another book I am dying to read!


After they answered some questions from the audience, there was signing. The line for Becca was the longest, so I got to take pictures and chat with Moira and Elizabeth. This resulted in being one of the last to meet Becca. By then I was tired and anxious to get home (because I am pretty sure the boyfriend was bored, even though he didn't admit it!) but it was definitely worth the wait. Becca was super nice and she was handing out signed posters to everyone who wanted them. I managed to snag one but...it's been neglected in my room. So look below for a chance to win that!

Overall, it was awesome! Unfortunately I couldn't afford to buy multiple copies to give away to my readers, sorry guys. And I still haven't read the books I got at this event either, but I will soon :)
