Authors in December!

As a few of you know, I met Kim Harrison and Faith Hunter on Saturday, December 5, 2009 at their joint book signing. It was really a good time! :-D They're such sweet, cool ladies.

Well a friend of mine, Chesya, got free tickets to see an author in Decatur, Georgia at her school. :-D I drove to Georgia on Monday, December 14, 2009.

When we went to meet said author and get books signed, we met up with two other friends. The unnamed author spoke from about 6p.m. till about 7:20p.m. The rest of the time was devoted to signing books. Here's a pic of me and said author:

I got my book signed at 11:30 p.m. It's me and NEIL GAIMAN!! The pic is from a camera phone and kinda grainy, plus my butt was numb at that point from sitting; but who cares, it's Neil Gaiman, who was extra nice! :-D

My Contest!

Okay guys, I promised you a contest. And here it is: All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me why you like urban fantasy, or if you haven't read any urban fantasy yet but would like to. If you post about my contest on your blog, live journal, Twitter, etc. and link to it in my comments section, you get TWO entries in the contest instead of one. If you don't link it, it doesn't count. All entries must be in by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, December 9, 2009.

Oh, and the prize? It's something awesome! It's a brand new signed copy of Faith Hunter's SKINWALKER. And Faith agreed to add a goodie or two to my prize for the lucky winner! :-D Here's a summary copied from Faith's website:

Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind—a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. Back from hiatus, she’s hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katies’s Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who’s killing other vamps.
Amidst a bordello full of real “ladies of the night,” and a hot Cajun biker with a panther tattoo who stirs her carnal desire, Jane must stay focused and complete her mission—or else the next skin she’ll need to save just may be her own…

P.S. The contest is open to everyone, regular commenters and lurkers alike, foreign and domestic. :-D

*Remember the contest ends 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, December 9, 2009. Winners will be announced on Thursday, December 10, 2009
