Fierce Reads Tour Recap + Giveaway!


Last week these five amazing authors came to Tampa for an event. If any of you aren't aware, almost no authors ever come to Florida so even though it was 2 hours away (3 with the massive traffic we encountered on the way) I wasn't about to miss this event.

(Emmy Laybourne, Jessica Brody, Anna Banks, Gennifer Albin, Leigh Bardugo)

They talked about everything from movie adaptations (Monument 14 and Shadow and Bone have both been optioned to be turned into movies) to how they write sequel books (they all agreed that the second book in series is basically hell to write). They also touched on how they deal with negative reviews and Anna Banks thinks there's some real possibility that mermaids exist but we just haven't found them yet.


After they talked about their books and answered questions came the signing portion. I got to take pictures with all of them and get all my books signed. Aside from amazing authors, these women are HILARIOUS! 

Can you spot the difference? :P

Giveaway:
They had some great swag so of course I thought of you guys! This giveaway includes signed bookmarks, a bracelet and some postcards (must be 13 and up):
