I had the opportunity to attend an author event in Hollywood, CA. I got to meet and selfie with a few authors I've read. And met a few I haven't read- Yet. The best part of the author event was meeting the other fans.
They love reading a books as much as I do. I have never gone 'alone' as I always make friends with perfect strangers. The husband and wife as we stood in line to get in - compared number of books read (I won). The mother and 14 yo daughter going to their first time author event - I shared upcoming events I heard of with teen day that maybe in her daughter's fan girl list. All in all, it was a wonderful evening. I got swag, spent more money on gifts and basked the warm energy of other book fans. While standing in line for Pepper Winters, I met a member of JA Huss' street team. A fellow speed reader. She reads at the same speed of light as I do. We talked about the authors we love, the type within the romance genre (she likes it dark), and recommended books to one another. That was the best part. Hearing how someone is so enthusiastic they want to share.
