I had him sign these:
I was quite proud of both myself and Elana for having conversed in a dignified manner, rather than going all gushy fangirl as he was signing our books. We also took a few minutes to chat with some other local authors, like Ally Condie and Lisa Mangum.
But, you say, this isn’t a problem. It was a local book festival, right? And, hello? Rockstar Mega author! Well, yes. This is true. But I attend signings a few times a month too. For instance, a couple weeks ago, I went to this book launch.
Before that, it was this one.
And in September, a lucky stroke of timing allowed me to be at the National Book Festival in Washington D.C., where I met…
Holy fangirl, Batman!
And yes, I did my best to be dignified there too. But you know. Couldn’t help but *squee* just a little bit.
She was not able to sign that day, but did have a stamp. I had her stamp this book. (Two copies--one is mine, the other??)
Who is your favorite author and to what lengths would you go to meet him or her?
