Apollycon 2017 Event Review/ Signed Giveaway**

Liezel’s Thoughts:
Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better Stephanie Sandra Brown and Hannah McBride proved me wrong! Apollycon 2017 was such a well-organized affair. Definitely one of my favorite events to date.

The location and venue were great!  I mean come on! Orlando? Perfect timing for the kids  (and mommy) who were needing a vacation. The DoubleTree by Hilton ( near Universal) was  terrific.
Any hotel with a bar situated across from a Starbuck’s is …

Rebels & Readers Event Review/ Giveaway**

Angie’s Thoughts:
 
On Saturday, November 5, 2016, the Rebels and Readers Author Event was graced by my cheerful presence! Unbeknownst to them there was an unidentifiable blogger amongst them watching their every move. What I found was both alarming and much different than the last signing I went to.

Instead of disorganization, I found none. I found room to walk amongst peers. To chat with all the authors about their books freely without fear of being trampled …

“Sexy and Sassy Signing” Event Review/ Signed Giveaway**

Micah’s Thoughts:
I attended the Sexy and Sassy Signing hosted by author Amy Marie and The Literary Gossip this past weekend on July 9, 2016, in Norfolk, Va.  I live about an hour away from the event, so it was a short drive.  I actually had the immense pleasure of starting the weekend early and got to attending the roving author dinner the night before.  The host of the evening was BT Urruela.  The authors would …

“Cleveland Author Event” Review/ Signed Giveaway**

Angie’s Thoughts:
This was my first big signing I ever went to and while there were some issues it didn’t stop me from having the time of my life! The venue was absolutely gorgeous!

While waiting for it to open, the authors started coming out for their pictures to be taken and I was a total fangirl! I wanted to start yelling their names and waving like the stalker I am but obviously, nerves took over and …

Lovely Ladies & Naughty Books Event Review/ SIGNED Giveaway**

Micah’s Thoughts:
I had the pleasure of attending the Lovely Ladies and Naughty Books author signing this past weekend, May 21, 2016, in Washington, D.C.  It was held at the gorgeous Mayflower Hotel in downtown.  The venue itself was breathtaking.  I’d never been to the Mayflower before, but it was beautiful.  Since I live only 2 hours from D.C., I don’t need to stay over in the city often.

There were three sessions for the event: blogger, …

Emerald City Author Event Review/ Signed Giveaway**

Liezel’s Thoughts:
I never intended to go to this event but once 2 of my favorite authors were announced I couldn’t resist one-clicking a  reservation to Seattle.
Truth is, not only has it been years since I’ve flown but I never flew to a book event EVER.  I didn’t know what to expect. I was more anxious than excited as the date got closer. As soon as I got there and caught a glimpse of all these amazing authors in one room all that stress and …

Sign N Sip was put on by Southern Bell Book Blog at the Rappahannock Cellars in Huntly, Virginia on August 23, 2016.  I had the pleasure of volunteering at this event.  This venue was GORGEOUS.  In the picture collage, I put some pictures of the surroundings and the actual signing room!
This event was extremely well planned and you could tell by the way it ran.  The lines were fairly short, except for a select …

What exactly is Apollycon?
If you haven’t figured it out yet (by the banner above)….. Apollycon is Jennifer L. Armentrout’s “The Power” (Book 2 in her TITAN Series) release party.
What is amazing about the event is not only does JLA bring her models (Pepe Toth and Drew Leighty) to this event but she brings her friends too! These friends are other well-known authors in both the Fantasy and Contemporary Genres.
Think about it…..One minute, I can …

Yallfest ’15 Event Review

What exactly is Yallfest?
Yallfest is an annual event that happens in Charleston, SC. It features some of the most sought after authors in the YA Genre such as Veronica Roth, Melissa deLa Cruz and Richelle Mead.
This is the 3rd year that I’ve attended this event and I must say that the event seems to get bigger and bigger.
What I thought about the event?
Negatives:
Book limits. Yes, I get it…but 2 per authors was a bit much. Standing …

IndiegirlCON ’14 Event Confessions/ Giveaway**

My IndieGirlCon Confessions:
1. Male models frighten and confuse me. I still can’t decide how I feel about them. I’m leaning towards rather seeing them on a book cover and not up and personal walking (dancing?) shirtless  in front of me.
2. Always wondered how to pronounce Tijan’s name. Everyone says it differently.
3. I thought Tabatha Vargo – Author was hilarious. She made such an amazing host. I loved that her hubby was such a good sport …
