1. My big sign at the entryway. (I'm making a weird face because I was in the middle of telling my mom to 'hurry and take the picture'. There were a lot of people trying to walk by.)
2. The cozy booth at Shadow Mountain, where I signed books and handed out proper tea.
3. Meeting Jane Seymour and giving her a copy of Edenbrooke. She was so pretty and gracious.
4. Picking up an ARC (Advanced Reader's Copy) of The Dark Unwinding. I was looking forward to getting my hands on this book, and it has not disappointed me. It's Steampunk Victorian Young Adult with a splash of fantasy set in the moors in England. It was singing my name! And isn't the cover gorgeous? I met the author there (Sharon Cameron), and I have to say, there is a difference between first-time and veteran authors at BEA. She was so grateful. (First-timer. I could relate.) I loved her. I'll let you know what I think when I finish it. So far, I'm impressed.
In addition, to that one, I also brought home at least a dozen books that I can't wait to dig into. What are you reading this summer? Any fun beach reads?
