RWA Literacy Signing

Yea, I totally meant to have this thing up and running waaay before now, but like with all things in my life, I tend to procrastinate. Getting to the point- Wednesday's Literacy Signing was by far the highlight of my year. I spent way more money then I should have (especially since I'm just a college student without a job) but every cent was totally worth it. And it went to a good cause, right?

Highlights of the event:

-Meeting Julia Quinn: I cannot say how awesome this was. I only brought two of my own books to be signed and one of them was Romancing Mr. Bridgerton. Julia Quinn was so incredibly nice and took time to talk to all of her fans.

-Meeting Sherry Thomas: I think this may have been one of the few times in my life I was truely starstruck. I'm pretty sure I started babbling like a lunatic, which wasn't helped by the nasal congenstion from my sinus infection (really, who gets a sinus infection in summer!?). But here's the truly amazing thing. When I asked here to make the autograph out to "D.L.", she asked "Oh, is your e-mail the.distant.light?" OMFG!!!! I had forgotten that I had left a comment on her blog that morning, but it is soooo kick ass that she remembered. Epic moment in my life!

More exciting pictures are to come!
