Last Thursday night was Richelle Mead's book signing, for the Last Sacrifice book tour here in Seattle - and as promised, I have a few goodies to give away to a few of my lucky followers!
It was great to meet Richelle - she was really down to Earth and I particularly enjoyed how she spent time talking with everyone...especially all of her teen fans (and there were many!).
Her husband was even there, taking pictures to post on her blog - and I sat next to him for about fifteen minutes, while I waited to take a picture of my lurv-e-ly friend, Boom! Bridgid (she'll laugh at that, I know), when she got up to meet Richelle.
It was great to hear his thoughts on all the VA madness - and I had to confess to him, I took a picture of him while he was sitting off to the side, reading emails on his phone. Said picture was subsequently texted to my husband with the caption, "Look honey! When I get published, this is what you get to do!" Needless to say, Mr. Mead thought that was ha-larious!
Anyhow - on to the fun and all the details of the book(s) giveaway!
