Book Bash 2013

My best friend Elizabeth, our husbands and I road tripped to Orlando for Book Bash! We left super early Friday morning (5am) and checked into The Doubletree by Hilton at Universal Studios Saturday morning at 3am. We were pooped BUT we were way too excited for Book Bash that we still woke up pretty early.
We hit up Starbucks then Books-a-Million before kissing our husbands good-bye and waiting in line with all the other fan-girls.
Autumn Doughton met us there and we had a blast with our Flat Komal Kant (I couldn't go to Book Bash without her!)
It was crazy in there! It was a little overwhelming actually but we made our rounds and didn't get smashed so I consider that a success. (I'm kind of a shrimp so getting smashed is always an unfortunate possibility)
We got our picture taken with the fabulous Katja Millay and I'm LOVING Sea of Tranquility right now.
I came home with lots of swag!

Including these AWESOME shirts that Liz and I found at Books-a-Million that say "Pretty Girls Read Books"
Best part of the day besides meeting all the fabulous authors and readers? When it was my turn to get my books signed by Abbi Glines, she RECOGNIZED me before I even said anything from her book signing I went to last year. She even recalled the conversation we had about my husband's response to the "Find a guy with a truck" in my copy of the indie version of The Vincent Boys (his response was "Did you tell her you already have one?"). While we were in line Liz kept telling me I should ask her if she remembers me because I'm such a huge fan of hers. I kept telling her no that I wasn't going to say anything because I was certain Abbi Glines would never remember little ole me. So it was really awesome that she actually did! Totally made my day and I might have talked about it randomly for the rest of the weekend. :)
I had the best time and I can't wait to go next year (Maybe I'll even have my own table!)

    That is really cool Erica - so glad you all had a great time, and willing to share with everyone.
    What did 'Hubbies' get up to whilst you girls were having fun - surely after such a long trip they must have found something fun - apart from bubbly wives (which is always a great thing)?
