Author Event & Giveaway: Authors in the OC 2015

Authors in the OC
Embassy Suites, Anaheim – October 3, 2015
I’ve been planning to attend this event since the beginning of the year, which I was lucky to get a ticket because they sold out in four, short days after going on sale!  When I saw some of my favorite authors would be in attendance, I knew I had a hot ticket in my hands!  What an amazing event that raised awareness and money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

The line-up was incredible!! Check out the banner above to see the list of the lovelies that gathered to make this event incredibly successful.

Despite this event being jam packed with avid readers, I got a chance to get up close to some pretty amazing authors, and I walked away with some great recommendations. Here are just a few!
From  left to right: Amy Harmon author of The Law of Moses, S.C. Stephens author of the Thoughtless series, and Lexi Ryan author of Unbreak Me.
From left to right: Claire Contreras author of the Hearts series and Shayla Black author of the Wicked Lovers series.  I wasn't able to meet every author in attendance because the event was absolutely crowded. However, I'm glad I was at least able to connect with my favorite!  Take a look!!
As always, my favorite author in this genre, Tarryn Fisher, was my first stop. I was lucky enough to be among the first group of gals that got to meet her. She signed a pretty big stack of books for my roomie Brandie and myself. I also got an extra book of Marrow signed for one lucky Waves of Fiction follower, so don't miss out on the chance to win!  Tarryn is absolutely gracious and attentive to the hundreds of ladies that lined up to meet her. She remains one of my favorite because she knows how to connect with her fans.  Love her!
Tarryn Fisher was slated to attend the event with Colleen Hoover, so I was bummed to hear when I got there that she cancelled the day before. No worries though! There was plenty of action and excitement throughout the day. There were a few moments of chaos, but considering the star-studded line-up of authors, it was worth it.
And now for the giveaway!! I received a fun bundle of paperback books, along with some cool swag, which I will be giving away with the event tote bag.  In addition, the lucky winner will also receive a signed copy of Marrow by Tarryn Fisher
This giveaway is open to U.S. Residents only. You must be a Waves of Fiction follower on GFC and Bloglovin to win! Good luck!
