My Fan Girl Moment!!!!

Sunday... September 6th, 2009... I went to my first book signing in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Hotel Monteleone! I can tell you that I was besides myself!!! It was not a big signing... but it meant the world to me!
Now, I must remind you that I have NEVER been to anything like this, so I had no idea what to expect. I was floored to say the least...

I had no idea who was going to be there except for Erin McCarthy and boy was I surprised to find some new authors to me!!! And this was just a brush of who I met there and what I walked away with...

This is my daughter's BFF with Diana Rowland!
Mark of the Demon is her new book we purchased...

Then look for her second book to come out in February of 2010!!!Her covers are amazing!! And she is a delight!

This is a very new author to me...
Josephine Templeton
I purchased Forever Yours... It is about vampires... Come' on... who can resist!

Then... Oh My Gosh... I got to meet
Ms. Erin McCarthy!!!
And of course... I got my copies of Hard and Fast and Flat-Out Sexy autographed!!!!

Then I met Ms M.A. Ellis! She is such a doll!! And her books are hot, hot, hot!!!!
Of course, I could not pass up this book... OMG... who could...
Hard As Nails
And to make matters worst... this book is about 4 brother... yes, four very hot, sexy, hot... did I mention sexy brothers!!! And then she has another book coming out about 2 more of the brothers... Come' on ladies... Just look at that cover... And the book has a face!!! And what a face with a hell'va body!!!

Then the highlight of my day was actually meeting a very new author and a new friend of mine... Ms. Silver James!!!!
Yep... I met this lovely lady over at Jennifer Lyon's blog... She is so funny!!!
I stalked her... I mean, I looked for her and prayed I would find her... She is another reason why I went... A chance to meet a fellow blogger!!!
Her book is Faerie Fate and it is due out April 30, 2010I hope you enjoyed my trip to the book signing, I know I did!!! I was so excited. Thank you for coming along with me on my day!!! This is how I spent my Sunday!!! How did you spend your Sunday??

  13. Hi Cecile, popped over from the Shadows. I am so glad you had a great time meeting with Silver and your other fav authors. It is times like these when I wish I had a blog myself. I will one day, I am sure. Just wanted to drop by and say hello.

    Peace and love,
    Paula R.

  14. Very, very cool! Erin McCarthy! Squeee!

  15. Woo-hoo Cecile!! I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time. I have never been to anything like that either and I would just be awe struck. LOL


  16. Wow Cecile! You are so very lucky! I am too jealous for words that you met Erin McCarthy-she is a new to me author and I have just read Flat Out Sexy and Hard and Fast and am just dying for the next one. There will be another, right? You look so calm and cool-I don't know if I could keep my inner fan girl so calm when meeting my favorite authors.

    Curious-how does one find out about these types of author get togethers?

  17. Glad you had so much fun! By the way, today I blogged about the New Orleans dialect, since you're a fellow Louisianian you might be able to contribute any terms I forgot. :)

  18. You did not stalk me, Cecile! Thank you so much for coming to the signing. All the funds from the books went to the New Orleans Public Library. They are still trying to rebuild and refurbish libraries and books lost during Katrina.

    Thanks so much for being a friend and a fan! I hope you'll enjoy FAERIE FATE when it comes out!

    Oh, I had a blast! It was the neatest thing to be there and see! It was very fun!!
    The only thing, I did not realize was, they only took cash or checks... so thank goodness for that... or I would have came home broke!!!

    I did have a wonderful time!

    ~Yvette Kelly
    That is why I went to this one... I wanted to see what they were all about!! And now, I will be searching for the next one!!!

    Awww... Thank you Barbara!! I really did enjoy myself!

    I did have a blast. Oh if you read it before me, you must let me know!!! It does sound very interesting!
    I think the Silver James will interest a few of you out there!!!

    Anytime I can do anything for you Hilda, you just let me know!!! I wish you were here too! You would have a great time!

    Girl, I am always jealous of you!!! =) LOL!!
    It was very exciting, especially once I learned what I could get for free!!!

    It really was a great time. Oh, Ms. Diana's covers are gorgeous!!! Something I will definitely be reading!!

    I enjoyed it more than I thought possible. And meeting Ms. McCarthy was awesome! But I was soooo excited to meet Ms. Silver James too!!! That was my highlight!
