So this week was kinda crazy. There is the reason for lack of posting and commenting and such. I’m wayyy behind. I only have like 4 posts scheduled. Oh my. This week is going to be insane with all my crazy post writing and review writing and and and. Yup. I’m going to explode.
So this week I went to a book signing in Houston my friend Emma. Who was there you ask? Julie Kagawa and Aimee Carter. In case you live under a rock Julie Kagawa is the author of the Iron Fey Series, Immortal Rules series, The Lost Prince series. Aimee Carter is the author of the Goddess Test series. Yes. I really hope you don’t live under a rock.
So the goodies you ask? Why, here they are!

The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
So questions are answered at book events.
Aimee and Julie told us their trials as they became authors. In high school, Aimee wrote over 3 million words of Harry Potter fan fic. She said that that was some of the most honest critiques that she had ever had and probably ever will. Apperntly fan will tell you straight up if they love it or hate it. They’ll even question (to your digital face) why you are writing. Harsh. When her dad finally read the Goddess Test, he told her that was The One. The one that was gonna make her a published author. He bought her flowers and one of those cute butterfly things. How cute!
And apparently “editing never ends”
And yes, I asked her a question. I asked her which character she felt most connected to. She said she feels, as odd as it may be, most connected to Henry.Henry is also Hades, God of the Underworld. Who by the way, is one of my favorite character in all Greek Mythology.
When another person asked if she did any research for her book, she jokingly said she did all her research when she was three. Apparently she’s always been a fan of Greek myths.
Her new series, The Blackcoat Rebellion, will be published November 26, 2013.
Julie Kagawa is a tiny bit evil. Wanting to end the Iron Fey series at book three? Uhm, sister, that’s a no no.
Julie: chucking at the thought of making people cry
She is totally funny though! Laughing at saying ‘uhm hi’ to people who should at least be given a hello. Julie said she feels like there’s “a little bit of myself in all the characters”
She also recommended The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.
Oh. And here are some pictures of me and the authors. Ugh. I look horrible. Definitely now my best day.
I felt tall. And frizzy. And lack of makeup.
But hey! Look! Authors! Yay!
