Updates: Why You Don't Anger Authors

I know I said last week was busy, but this week was busy, too. In a good way, except for the near total lack of reading. That's not so good, but a new month approaches! I did finish Chasing Power which, as predicted, could not pull it out in the end and remained a 2-star read. :(

On a happier note, I went to the Fierce Reads tour and saw Ann Aguirre, Caragh M. O'Brien and Marie Rutkoski! The store had free wi-fi, so I was tweeting snips and pictures throughout the whole thing.

Along with the usual writing, books, characters, etc., there were some really interesting tangents. Ann Aguirre is good with a shotgun and explained the difference between a shotgun and rifle (which somehow led to a discussion on shooting ducks?). Caragh O'Brien talked about throwing knives, hitting right between the eyes...while you she's now everyone's first pick should the zombie apocalypse hit. And Marie Rutkoski is more of a poison gal, which fed into the idea that she might be a Slytherin. (Marie said she's more of a Ravenclaw.)

And, because I didn't drive an hour and a half to go home empty-handed, I got a signed copy- Rutkoski's The Shadow Society. I wanted to get everything, but I'm on a budget this month and those pretty hardcovers are not cheap. I also got to chat with Jamie of The Perpetual Page-Turner, which was awesome!

That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of The Eye of Zoltar by Jasper Fforde! In which the characters travel to a land where everything tries to kill you. :)

  1. Wow! That sounds like a blast! Note to self: always stay on the good side of an author! :)

    1. It really was! And yes, we must make sure those violent imaginations (and skills) are never aimed at us. ;)

  2. Haha, yeah, I now don't want to hate any of their books!

    1. Right? Maybe I shouldn't have posted so many tweets and pictures during that event...they might recognize my name if they happen upon one of my reviews. "Danger, Will Robinson. Danger."
