Dark Days of Supernatural - Part One

I was extremely lucky to be able to go to Dark Days of Supernatural in Oregon this week. It was awesome! 

Click on the pictures to see them bigger.

I got there pretty early, around 5:00p.m., and the front row was already taken. I was still able to get seating in the second row! Score! That's way better than my last signing, where I was stuck way behind the massive crowd (you can read about that signing here). It was at the Barnes and Noble in Clackamas:

They were up on the second story, right in front of the windows in the middle

The ladies that were at my stop of the tour were so sweet, fun, and totally entertaining! I got to see Tara Hudson, Ellen Schreiber, Aprilynne Pike, Amy Plum, and Veronica Roth!! I have lots of pictures to share with you!

 They were announced and then they told us about their books. After that, the audience asked questions. I had a heck of a time trying to take pictures with that super bright window behind them! I could give you all the technical mumbo jumbo, but I know you just want to see the pictures. :)

All five of the wonderful authors
There were lots of great questions, but I don't really remember them all. Honestly, almost everything that was asked can be found on the author's blogs and websites, so I didn't take notes or anything.

They Talked and answered questions for about 45 minutes or so, and then they started signing! 
They each had cute things they gave to us, too! Amy gave out yummy chocolate from France, Tara gave out bracelets, Aprilynne and Veronica gave out tattoos, and Ellen gave out little 3 musketeers and bookmark. I'll show you some of the stuff in part two of Dark Days - all except the chocolate. I ate that. :)

I think the authors all had a good time too!
Plus, I was able to meet Kristina, from My World of Books! It was awesome to finally meet her. We've been talking about this for months. She drove down from Washington:

I totally forgot to say hi to Vy and to Candace! I don't know how I let that slip my mind. Boo. :(

Overall, it was so fun. It was worth it to be super early and get a good seat. Plus, we got our books signed by row, so we didn't have to wait long at all.

I have more to show you! I'll try and have the pictures of the signatures and fun goodies I got in Part Two!

All pictures belong to me. Do not steal them. If you are an author or publisher, all you have to do is ask, and I will give you images without watermarks. :)
