We ended our first day at DBF with a panel discussion by Rachel Hawkins and Nancy Werlin. Unfortunately, I had the same problems I had with the Zombies Vs. Vampires panel (couldn't see or hear) which were compounded by the fact that I was late (sorry Rachel and Nancy) and the fact that my sad little energy-deprived body was just barely hanging on at that point. I can't really tell you much about about the panel other than that I sat by a little old man who looked remarkably like Johnny Wink, my favorite professor from Ouachita. Again, my apologies to Rachel and Nancy - I'm sure the panel was hilarious and fascinating and my friends who were there tell me it was amazing. I was the obnoxious girl who came in late.
I've already bought a million signed copies of Hex Hall and given them to everyone I know, so I didn't pick any of those up, but I certainly recommend it. It's such a fun read. As sad as I was not to have anything for Rachel to sign, I did manage to get my copy of The Rules of Survival signed by Nancy Werlin. The next day I also picked up a signed copy of Extraordinary because I just couldn't control myself. Crystal and Leah and Anna are pretty much BFF with Rachel, so I got to chat with Nancy for a minute, while they spoke with Rachel. Then we all took a group picture, which I'm refusing to post because my eyes are closed and I look hot and sweaty. But enjoy the pictures of my signed books! And look for reviews soon!
And because I can't remember if I posted these before, look at sweet Sly posing with my zombie swag:
And last, not at all book related, but I'm posting it because it's way too cute not to - Luke gives Chief a bath:
That was three weeks ago. Chief's back now hits me at my waist. He is going to be a monster. He's two weeks younger than Dexter, almost as tall, and weighs just as much.
