Friends, compadres, amigos, I went to a super awesome signing at Oblong Books way back in February. I did cool things like took a video of it, and bought extra books to give away. I also kind of sort of never got around to posting about the signing. BOO on me, I suppose.
SO way back in February when there were still things like snow on the ground and gas below $3, I made the trek to Oblong Books with my friend Allison — (she’s on Twitter! Finally!) to go see E. Lockhart, author of a bazillion awesome books including the Ruby Oliver series and The Disreputable History of Frankie Laundau-Banks.
Fantastical things happened at the signing – a copy of Divergent as well as Beauty Queens were given away. ARCs were door prizes. OH and Aimee Ferris author of Will Work For Prom Dress was there. OH and there were snacks. AND they had a copy of Sea by Heidi R. Kling for sale, making it the first time I’ve seen that book in the wild.
Also, E. Lockhart was not boring in the least, and told us all about Ruby and her inspiration. Also, footnotes.
Anyways, I thought I would let the videos speak for themselves.
OH OH and a contest:
Click the link and fill out the form to win all four books in the Ruby Oliver series AND The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. All of the books are signed and finished copies.
