I'm always amazed with how small the YA book world is. I am bound to run into familiar faces or names. I was in-line with several other authors, and turns out one is the moderator of a blog I was looking at just last night! I met Caitlin Kittridge, Cherie Priest, and Kimberly Derting.
As for the supernatural authors...I knew Aprilynne from Absolute Write and was excited about her news. It was great to meet her. She was really adorable, funny, enthusiastic, and charming. It was particularly inspiring to see the way she interacted with the really young fans. Claudia is also from Absolute Write--another kindred spirit!

Currently, I'm reading "The Summoning" by Kelley Armstrong and loving it. (And got the second book at the event.)
Oh, and stories about book cover designs? Never tire of 'em.
This concludes my report! Peace out!
P.S. You can see teen blogger, Sarah Woodard's event report here...and author, Kimberly Derting's report here. Woo!
