My First Book Signing Giveaway!

I went to my first book signing today! It was at Indigo in Yorkdale Mall in Toronto.


The signing started at 2pm and the line-up wasn't too bad, considering I slept in and didn't arrive until after noon!


Luckily, the girls in line behind me, Csilla and Shanelle were friendly and fun! We talked books (of course), TV, and they told me about Hot Subway Guy. Thanks, girls! ;)

Finally, after a 3.5 hour wait, it was my turn to meet Kelley! SO EXCITING!


I said hello and told her I was originally from Sudbury, where Kelley was born.


She noticed my True Blood tee-shirt and she told me she'd seen the cast at SDCC! Of course, I HAD to geek out and we talked Comic Con!


She's making another appearance this year, so if you go, be sure to say hi to her! She's really sweet!


I then got my photo taken with her...and a HUGE thanks to the staff member who was taking the photos for the fans! She took ALL of these pics with my own phone while I was talking to Kelley!

Of course, I HAVE to mention that she signed my copy of The Calling, and I squeed a little bit. You guys, this is the FIRST book I've ever gotten signed IN PERSON! How amazing is that for lil old me?!


Of course, I didn't forget YOU all, so look what else I picked up!


That's right! BOTH books in Kelley's YA series, Darkness Rising! The Gathering and her brand new book, The Calling!

Oh, but that's not all...


Yup! I asked her to sign book 1, The Gathering, just for YOU! Pretty awesome, right?!

So! Who wants to win these books? ;)
