Right before comic con Suey, Jenni, Tori, and I went to see Marissa Meyer at The King's English. She was on tour for her newest book Fairest.
She was really fun. She was so happy and full of energy.
She read an excerpt from Winter! That was creepy and awesome!
She talked about her inspiration for Fairest and how she had to write Levana story before she could finish Winter.
She talked about inspirations for different characters.
Me and Marissa! She had this really cool backdrop.
We went to Noodles & Company afterwards for some tasty food!
Last week was Courtney's launch party for Shutter!!! I was so excited! I've been waiting for this for years!
Courtney wore this super cute outfit, complete with zombie skirt.
She had an amazing presentation!
She talked about book godfathers aka books that have influenced her life and writing.
She showed a clip of Van Helsing.
She talked about 15 year old Courtney.
She talked about meshing different genres together.
She talked about a lot of things only a highly intelligent individual like her would know about. It was cool.
Signing my book!
Behind Courtney starting on the left is Me, Jenny, Jenni, Suey, and Toto.
Afterwards, we wen to JCWs for some grub!
We haven't been here for a while, and it was good to be back. We used to go weekly.
