RT Teen Day was a blast! I had so much fun talking to all of the authors and interacting with them one on one. The people in charge of setting up RT Teen Day did a fantastic job and I could tell that everyone was enjoying themselves. I am soo exhausted just from Saturday, as it was non-stop action for me from 9:00 am-8:30 pm but the tiredness and sore shoulders was so worth it! I am already planning on going to Chicago for next year's RT Teen Day.
Then the doors opened and it was MADNESS. The row where the teen authors were started getting really packed and I started rushing around to get all of my books signed. I got the chance to meet C.C. Hunter, who appeared on my blog a week ago. She is awesome and she really appreciates bloggers. I really don't remember much after that because it was crazy by this time but I got to meet all the authors there and they were all so nice and signed my load of books. Sarah Rees Brennan gave me an ARC of Enthralled after she learned I had gone to Smart Chicks and then I went back around to all the other authors to get the anthology signed by the Smart Chicks authors that were there. At one point, these two really cute buys came up to me and told me about The Survivors by Amanda Havard. It was a great marketing strategy and it got me over to her table to buy The Survivors. One of them happens to be a warbler from Glee. =)
After the book fair, my mom and I dropped all of the books off in the hotel room and then went to the Author Speed Dating. That was a ton of fun. There were about 10 authors there and every 5 minutes, they rotated tables. Richelle Mead was the first author at our table and she had some cool stories and asked all of us about our favorite books. After Richelle Mead switched tables, it is all kind of a blur. I know I had some pretty cool conversations with all of the authors and all of them were awesome! It went by so fast and I had a great time. I do remember that I asked Rachel Vincent if she would write another story from Todd's point of view, and she said it was a real possibility! Jennifer Lynn Barnes told us a hilarious story of her time on monkey island (she seriously was on an island with 1000 monkey's).
it was Nick, the bad boy who is a demon slayer. She replied that no, it was actually Jamie, which really disappointed and shocked him. Apparently he doesn't see himself in that light. ;) So now she says whenever she is writing a scene with Jamie in it and she leaves it up on the computer when she leaves the room, when she comes back one of the characters has commented on how buff Jamie is looking and asks if he has been working out. It was so much better to hear it come from her mouth because she has this sarcastic way of saying things that gives me tears in my eyes I laugh so hard!
