Book Signing for PARANORMALCY!

After this post, you will all want to move to Utah. I'm just warning you now. Why? Because there is such a huge support system of local YA authors in Utah, and we are all made of awesome. Right?
On Saturday, uber-cute Kiersten White came into to town to do a signing at The King's English for her recently released (and already New York Times BESTSELLER!!!!) PARANORMALCY. This book is awesome - if you haven't read it yet, you must. Immediately. Go, now. I'll wait.
Okay, anyway...
Here's a whole bunch of the local authors and aspiring authors who came out to support Kiersten. (There were even more not pictured!) In case you don't recognize faces: Back row, left to right: Mary Beecher Campbell, Windy Aphayrath, Elana Johnson, Sara Raasch (who is technically from Ohio, but was in town visiting *waves at long lost name-twin*!), Me (with the b&w hat), Natalie Whipple, Ali Cross. Front Row, Left to Right: L.T. Elliot, Nichole Giles, Carolyn Vawdrey, Bree Despain
Me and Kiersten who is so funny, cute, and nice and I could keep going, but I seem to be gushing, so I'll stop. Suffice it to say that she's awesome, and I'm so thrilled for her well deserved success. Have I mentioned how awesome her book PARANORMALCY is? Ahem.

Afterwards, my friend Stacey (aka Aubrey who is the founder of MyPileOfBooks - awesome book blog I've raved about previously) went for some shopping and frozen yogurt. Yum yum!

See, now don't YOU want to live in Utah? Don't say I didn't warn you... It's okay. You can come visit anytime.
Congrats again Kiersten!

I'm so jealous!!!!! I recognized so many pretty faces in that photo, and my smile grew wider as I read through the names. So wish I could meet up with so many awesome writer/bloggers. Thanks for sharing. I loved Paranormalcy, btw!!

Kiersten White said...

You are one of those rare people that is even prettier in real life than in your gorgeous icon photo. How is that fair??

It was so fun to finally meet you : )

Aubrey - It was tons of fun. :)

Michelle - I'm sorry I didn't get to talk to you very much at all. Next time! And thank you for the compliment!

Nicole - Come on out and visit us. ;)

Kiersten - You're too sweet. I'm thinking you might be slightly vision-impaired, but still sweet. ;) I'm so glad I got to come and meet you!

Ali - I love living here, too. Thank you!

I've been skiing in Utah...does that count for anything? :) I cannot imagine what it would be like to be surrounded by so many of the "Like Minded". Pure awesomesauce!

Unknown said...

I'm amazed by all those authors names and faces I cool!

Looks like you had a blast. Kiersten is definitely an inspiration.

Honestly, I don't know why I'm not already on a plane. You guys are so lucky to have such a strong support system around you. Congrats to Kiersten!!
