Supernatural Friends Make the Best Friends
by Terri Garey
That night, we all took part in a giant Literacy for Life signing with over 400 authors and hundreds upon hundreds of book lovers at the Marriott Marquis - it was a total mob scene, and tons of fun! Afterward, for a late dinner, I went back to the Italian place (What can I say? I like Italian!) with frabjulous New York Times bestsellers Jeaniene Frost and Pamela Palmer, where we solved the publishing world's problems over pasta and conversation.
Here I am giggling away on the outside patio with authors Colleen Gleason and Kerrelyn Sparks, along with bookseller extraordinaire, Maureen Downey, who had us in stitches! I met so many people that night that I couldn't begin to list them, but want to say a special thank you to Pam Spengler-Jaffee for organizing such a great evening!
All in all, it was exhausting, fun, fabulous and already seems too long ago. I can hardly wait for next year's conference in Anaheim, California to do it all again!
And best of all, guess what I came home with? Tons and tons of books! While doing a random check of all my goodies, I discovered a FULL set of the lovely and talented Vicki Pettersson's ZODIAC series (books 3 and 5 are signed), and thought I'd give them away in celebration of the great time I had being with my friends in NY.
How do you get them? Simple - leave me a comment telling me about one of your bffs, and why they're your friend, and you'll be entered in a drawing to win! Winner will be chosen next Friday, July 22nd, by Randomizer.org. Good luck!
