When my reading addition started, meeting one of the authors I so loved to read was something I never even considered within my realm of possibilities.
Then, when I started book blogging, I was well aware how hard and almost impossible it would be to meet my literary idols, but I started to get the craving for it.
Difficulty with meeting authors I love and attending signings and conferences is just one of the obstacles we face as international book bloggers. However, September this year I got the chance to go to a Book Conference in The U.S. (I talked about it HERE
) and since my 10-day trip turned into a 3-month one, I had the chance to go to The New York Comic Con in NYC and meet some of my favorite authors ever!
It was so much fun adn unbelievably surreal to talk to Jeaniene Frost, Jocelynn Drake, Caitlin Kittredge, Seanan McGuire and more, the most amazing thig for me was that they actually knew my blog! SQUEEEE! =D
Here are some pictures of me and these authors:
Me and Senan McGuire!
Me and Caitlin Kittredge!
At her publisher’s booth I heard she was around so I was sticking close by and try to see her, then my friend that had gone to the restroom called and told me to run there LOL
Me and Jocelynn Drake!
Me and Jeaniene Frost!
I am planning on coming next year again and attending the Authors After Dark Conference, let’s hope it will all work out!
How about you guys? Any authors you’re dying to meet?
Any authors you have met?
Any funny/interesting signing stories??
