A couple of weeks ago I attended the Lisa McMann signing in Atlanta! My very wonderful husband went with me! He even drove the whole way, and never complained once. Isn’t he awesome!? Anyway, when we got to the signing I went in and got stickers for my books and went to go find the stash of Lisa’s books so I could buy a finished copy of Cryer’s Cross and get a copy of Wake for Angela. They had plenty of copies of Cryer’s Cross, but not one copy of Wake! Isn’t that crazy?!
When I went over to the signing arena it was about 45 minutes before the signing was actually going to start, but the very awesome Vania and Lisa were about to start an interview, so I got to watch that. After that there was some time to kill so Lisa talked and joked with all of us. She is very nice! And silly!
When the actually reading and signing got underway she read the first 3 chapters of The Unwanteds!! It sounds great too! I actually got a copy of it in the mail the day after the signing, and I can’t wait to read it. Lisa then answered more questions and since it was a small signing she really just talked to all of us. She told us the story of how she became a writer, and she told us that her daughter has OCD which is what she based Kendall on in Cryer’s Cross.
When it was my turn to get my books signed I mentioned to Lisa that I was expecting The Unwanteds in the mail later in the week and she was really excited about it. She asked about the blog and she said that she really appreciated what us bloggers do! That they really needed us! That made my frinkin’ day! It was so good to hear that with all the drama that has went on lately. When we said goodbye she told me to keep reviewing! I told her to keep writing and she said it was a deal.
why I didn’t get my hair out of my eyes I do not know…Here is the video interview that the very awesome Vania did!
Lisa was so awesome and I had a fantastic time! If you get the chance to meet her, definitely do it!
