Last Sunday I jetted down to LA (can you say jetted in reference to Delta?) for a signing with Ally Carter at Mysterious Galaxy in Rodondo Beach.
The crowd felt like a really good mix of both our readers. And I think Ally and I talked well together. First we talked a bit about writing spies and espionage and our different approaches to teens under such a context.
After the talking, came the signing. I tend to like to chat with my readers and take pictures and such so the line moves a little slowly, but everyone was lovely and patient. I saw a number of familiar faces (although, forgive me, I’m not so good with names) and some lovely supportive friends. (Including Robert who took most of these photos.)
I also got some tribute, so nice. You guys are too good to me!
I got whisked off to a fantastic cocktail party with delicious nibbles, amazing modern art, and got this spectacular picture of LA at night! (Look at me with the overuse of superlatives.)
