Book Signing: Starring LK Madigan

WHAT AN AWESOME DAY!!!! Today, friend and local author LK Madigan had a fantastic book signing!!!! Her book FLASH BURNOUT (omg, it's so good you have to read it!) is out now and SOLD OUT the entire stock in Powell's. The place was packed, like over fifty people packed!

LK started out with an amazing speech. In fact, she had me and Lisa Schroeder in tears. It was so touching, thoughtful, sweet. She told us about her journey, offered advice and threw chocolate at us!

Not just any chocolates. Chocolates with her book cover on them from A1wrappers!!!!! I NEED to do that!

Then she had a teenager (totally handsome, readers!) who came up and read from the book. We were roaring with laughter.

So many amazing writers, illustrators and artists in attendence. In fact, we even got a view as to what Clementine Pie will look like when she gets older! I think Laini and Jim will be proud. :-)

Well, it was an awesome book signing with awesome friends and I cannot WAIT for everyone to get FLASH BURNOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You guys are putting us to shame with your local writing community camaraderie. :)
Isn't there a way that we can combine Portland and Seattle so that we can all get together more often?

I was just staring at Clementine Pie for five minutes trying to figure out if that was really the baby's hair - good one.

Looks like a blast! :)
