Tale of a book signing with Megan Crewe, Jenny Moss, Jon Skovron, Rhonda Stapleton, J.A. Yang, and Michelle Zink

Two days ago, I was fortunate enough to meet six very cool people two days ago when I went to a book signing extravaganza of sorts at my new favorite bookstore, Books of Wonder. Seriously, I religiously stalk their events page, because I know they have great YA events so often.

 I went to this signing for the 2009 Debs with Mitali from Alley of Books, and I have to say that we had a blast. To start off, each author introduced themselves and their books, and then there was some Q&A.

J.A. Lang talks about his book Exclusively Chloe
Megan Crewe, author of Give Up the Ghost
Michelle Zink, author of the Prophecy of the Sisters series
Jenny Moss shows off a shiny ARC of her upcoming book Taking Off

Because there were so many authors there, it would have taken too long for everyone to do a reading, but Jon Skovron had something special prepared, as you shall see, because I took a video! Please ignore my incessant giggling in the background.

As you all can probably tell, it was a lot of fun. I had a great time chatting with all the authors, particularly Michelle Zink, Megan Crewe, Jenny Moss, and Rhonda Stapleton (who is literally a riot), stealing all their book swag, and also seeing Barry Lyga and Michael Northrop. And, of course, getting to grab dinner with all of them afterwards was pretty cool too. I love living in NYC!

I'm so jealous! They always have the best group book signings everywhere I'm not. Especially in NY!
