Book Signing October 26, 2009

I had the pleasure of attending a book signing at a local Writers’ Conference on the weekend. I was unable to attend the conference itself, for which I am eternally bitter as from all accounts it was fabulous, but I was able to make time to meet a few authors on Saturday evening.

It was a fabulous experience! I clutched my books, waited in line, and tried very hard not to go all ‘rabid fan-girl’ on some of my favourite writers. The longest line was for Diana Gabaldon, but there were several other very popular authors. I felt privileged to meet Ms. Gabaldon, Jack Whyte, Terry Brooks, Anne Perry, and C.C. Humphreys, and they were only a small percentage of authors at the conference!

I am kicking myself for not learning about the conference early enough to be able to attend, but now that I know it happens every year, you can be guaranteed I will be there next year! Look out Surrey International Writers’ Conference – I’m attending in 2010, even if I have to camp outside to register!

If you’re reading this and you have attended a previous conference, please post a comment sharing your experiences and recommendations. I want to make the most of the experience, and feedback from others will go a long way in helping me prepare. Only 363 days to go until next year!
