Audrey, Wait In Your Room!
As expected, Robin Benway and Jordanna Fraiberg were a lot of fun to do a booksigning with. I absolutely loved both Audrey, Wait! and In Your Room, so it was great to hear the backstories of where they came up with the ideas for their books.
In fact, if I wasn't sitting on the same side of the table as Robin and Jordanna, I would've still come out to hear them speak.
For everyone who got a book signed, we had special gifts. They got to take home Advanced Reading Copies of some upcoming Razorbill books. (And one or two may have accidentally come home with me, too.)
But the fun didn't stop when the work was done (of course, booksignings feel much more like fun than work). We all went out to a nice dinner with JoanMarie and Alex, also known as my wife and Jordanna's husband. And I got to show off some of the highlights of my town, such as Bubblegum Alley!
Yes, the walls of Bubblegum Alley are coated with exactly what it sounds like.
