I went this morning to the NCIBA offices in San Francisco which is in the Presidio area of the city to have a This is Teen Luncheon. Luncheon is fancy talk for lunch. There was a fantastic buffet style spread and I even got a cookie!
I got to meet Maggie Stiefvater (again), Meg Cabot, and the fabulous Libba Bray. Inwardly with Libba I was going fangirl because I have been reading her forever, way before I started blogging. There were little bags with Abandon, Beauty Queens and an ARC of Forever inside. I will move on swiftly to the pictures but if you get a chance to meet the authors on this tour you absolutely should do so. They put the Fab in Fabulous.

Thank you so much Not Your Mothers Bookclub for hosting this fabulously swanky party at Books Inc Opera Plaza! There was food, prizes, and surprise guests! I was able to get my ARC of Huntress signed by the fabulous Malinda Lo! There is going to be a lot of info in this post but minimal bouts of text. I just want to make sure you guys know how awesome this was and get you some info on surprise guests and bloggers that were in attendance.
So who showed up to the shindig?
Tons of bloggers and two special authors besides the ones on the bill.
Sophie from Mundie Moms, Nancy from Ravenous Reader, Alicia from Shooting Stars, Zoe from Zoe’s Book Reviews, Emily from Super Reader Girl,, the FABULOUS Connie who works at Books Inc and just started her blog and I think that is it for the bloggers? Did I miss you? Let me know!
As far as surprise authors Malinda Lo was there, and the super secret surprise guest Ted Naifeh who illustrated a line of Holly’s books that are out now from Scholastic. He made some awesome art in my book that I bought and you guys can see that later…
Did you ask Holly or Cassandra my question?
Probably, but check out this AWESOME video interview to make sure.
