Meeting Richelle Mead Snapshot

Here's my latest awesome new arrivals...

The best part about going to a book signing is seeing all the other people there. I brought one of my favoritest people in all the world... lil' Miss Trin. She has not read Richelle Mead's books, yet, be we assured her in person that she'll get to 'em some day.

Here we are waiting for the famed author to arrive:

The best (and only) seat we could find was on the floor, which we would have chosen, anyway, tucked down a side aisle in the Travel Section. We were ecstatic about seeing Richelle as we listened to her read from Indigo Spell. She chose a passage with Adrian and Sydney, of course. It was so fun to hear her inflections.

There wasn't really a line, per say... it was more a free-for-all after all the seated early arrivals went. Anyone who had bought Indigo Spell at the store rec'd a blue wrist band, so they got to shove to the front first. That was pretty much all of us. (Thank you, honey-do for buying me the awesome book!!)

Fortunately I have skills in this department. I found some enthusiastic first-timers and followed closely as they fought their way to the front.

We then relaxed over tea and had a long conversation about The Fiery Heart coming out on November 19th. Apparently things really heat up between Adrian and Sydney in the next book.

(Note: I did not get this book... it's new cover news.)

Just Kidding... there wasn't time for tea. And, Ok, she shared the book news with everyone. But we did relax for about 30 seconds.

I got a lot of stuff. I forgot to get the bookmarks... I don't even remember what they looked like. But Richelle gave Trinity a "St. V" pin with a tiny VA engraved on the back. Yep! She's an official student at St. Vladamir's now! I'm so proud!!  (That's it there above the signature in Bloodlines.)

It is possible that I should have stayed 'til the crowds cleared out to see if I could have gotten extras for Colorimetry readers. And I would have, too, if... naw... That crowd looked like it'd keep Richelle up 'til closing and then some. I left with the ambulance carrying out someone who fainted from... something. Crowds? I can joke a little 'cause she was smiling and waving as they carried her off. It was a very happy book signing.

Thx Alyce @ At Home With Books for hosting Saturday Snapshot!  You have stumbled onto my personal photo album, lucky you!!  Today is book-related, at least.



  1. How exciting! Its good to see book events that draw in lots of people, I have been to a few that have not.

  2. Loved where you guys sat! Glad it was so much fun.

  3. I am totally in that crowd picture! Well the side of my face and then my cousin behind.

    1. NO WAY!!!!!

      See? I knew I should've worn a funky-silly alien headband of some kind!! Then we could have embarrassed ourselves much easier!!!!!

      (I wondered when I posted that... it's not like I got your permission first.)

      Did you post about it?

    2. lol I was going through this post and turned to my cousin and was like "Hey! Look we are right there!" haha No I haven't written a post about going.

  9. Yey, the pictures!!
    (FIRST of all, sorry I've been MIA lately.)

    Now, those pictures are awesome! You pretty ladies look great; so excited. I'm glad you had a GREAT time, & yep, Little Miss Trinity MUST read ALL of Mead's books someday. Like, in a couple of years.

    Meanwhile... ARE YOU UP TO THE STORY ALREADY?!?!
    We have to discuss it, s'il vous plait!

    1. Lol... I'm hurrying... I have The Golden Lilly in my hot fingers. Lol. I gotta plan tours, though, you know. So fun. I'm reading quite a few books for that. First. I can't wait to talk about 'em, though!! Bloodlines was soooooo great. Hey... Have I posted my review for that, yet? I am so far behind on reviews. So little time.

    2. Yes, you posted it. Or not?
      OMG... I am this sure I read a review written by you of Bloodlines. Though, if you haven't written it yet, I have serious memory problems o.O

    3. I know. Maybe I shouldn't have TALKED ABOUT IT SO MUCH!!!!!!!!


  10. I am jealous too! Looks like you had fun. I have never been to a signing before. Someday...sigh..
