On Saturday, April 6th, 2013 we (Rachel and Arlene) had the pleasure of driving down to an awesome author event at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Los Angeles, California.
There were over a dozen of our favorite Contemporary Adult and New Adult Romance writers on-site sharing their latest books and fun swag.
Here’s a list of the star-power authors who attended the signing:
Steph Campbell (Grounding Quinn, My Heart For Yours)
Cora Carmack (Losing It)
Jillian Dodd (That Boy, Stalk Me, Kiss Me)
Rebecca Donovan (Reason to Breathe, Barely Breathing)
Abbi Glines (The Vincent Boys, Never Too Far)
Colleen Hoover (Slammed, Point of Retreat, Hopeless)
Molly McAdams (Taking Chances, From Ashes)
Liz Reinhardt (Lengths, Double Clutch, Junk Miles)
Michele Scott (The Grey Tier, Daddy’s Home)
Jessica Sorensen (The Secret of Ella and Micha)
SC Stephens (Thoughtless, Effortless, Reckless)
Jenn Sterling (The Perfect Game, Chance Encounters)
Nicole Williams (Crash, Clash)
|Abbi Glines signs Never Too Far|

So needless to say, we were absolutely star struck!! Having to wait around three hours to get up close and personal with some of our faves was a small price to pay. It was pure excitement having the chance to chat with these authors and get our bundle of books signed. Many of them had additional copies on hand, and as the excitement continued to grow, our book parcels expanded as well.
We were lucky enough to walk away with an amazing stack of SIGNED books to not only put on our shelves with our other favorites, but also share with our Waves followers.
Because we have SIX bundles of SIGNED books to share (two signed books per bundle), we wanted to offer as many opportunities as possible to win. So be sure the fill out each rafflecopter for the SIGNED books you’d most like to win. Some of them will include some surprise SWAG as well!! Also, don’t forget to share with us which of the authors on the list you’re most excited to add to your bookshelf.
This is such an amazing giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity, I love the authors!ReplyDelete
