Author Event: Carrie Ryan

This week, I got to meet Carrie Ryan, author of the Forest of Hands & Teeth trilogy! I, for some inexplicable reason, have not yet read these books but that was not going to stop me from attending the first stop on her tour for her latest and final installment in her Forest series, The Dark and Hollow Places.

We actually had a nice, intimate little group which was great because Carrie was able to talk at length about her ten-year plan, why she chose zombies and what it was like to become a "New York Times Best Selling Author!"  Hopefully her husband has recovered his hearing by now, lol.
She also read an excerpt from her "The Dark and Hollow Places" before we got started with the signing.

Yay for Carrie signing her first two books for me (I'll have to add book 3 to my library later - I've put myself on a book buying ban but that's a conversation for later, lol). 

She also gave us some swag and really, who doesn't love swag?!

Carrie is a DOLL!! She was so nice, fun and bubbly and I really had a great time!  Yes sir, I'm rocking my new Forest of Hands & Teeth pin :)

Love my new autographed babies that I know my Billy shelf will take good care of!

On a sad note:  Ash from Smash Attack and my BFF and book soulmate Vanessa weren't able to make it to the signing.  Books & Books changed the location to Ft. Lauderdale and with work and traffic, it wasn't possible for them to make it in time.  They're both HUGE fan-girls of Carrie so I know they would have loved every minute...but they were there in spirit!  Besides, just because you're not there...doesn't mean you're left empty handed ;-)
