Now that I’ve taken a post-BEA nap, I think I have the energy to post some of the highlights from Day 2. Hopefully this post is a bit more coherent than Day 1. I reread the first paragraph and thought “Oh god, I was a zombie when I wrote this.”
Nancy Bilyeau writes historical mysteries set in Tudor England. I loved her books The Chalice and The Crown, so I was delighted to get a chance to talk with her. She was so happy to hear that people love her novels, and was kind enough to take a picture with me.
Selfie with Lego Boba Fett. ‘Nuff said.
Ellen Datlow was doing a signing of a new horror anthology. I enjoyed her Snow White, Blood Red collection and was thrilled to get a chance to meet her.
And last but not least, Holly Black was doing a signing of her new book entitled The Darkest Part of the Forest. My sister has been recommending that I read Holly Black for years now, and this picture is going to make her extremely jealous. 😉
The first day of BEA was by far the most hectic for me. The second day was more laid back. There were some signings that I wanted to go to as well as some galley drops, but the times were spread out and I had some time to wander, network, and discover new things.
Stay tuned for a rant about day three and for a glimpse of all the new books that I’ll be reviewing over the next few months!
