Awesome Night & Giveaway!

Hey friends!

I've had an amazing night tonight! Wanna know what I did? Sure you do!

1. I finished my editing for my critique partner. Yay!

2. I got to pick my hubby up from the airport, so he's home now. Double Yay!

and the coolest thing?!

3. I got to go to a book signing by Suzanne Collins for Mockingjay! Triple Yay! and even more giddiness!

Wanna see pictures? Well, here you go!

Yup, that's Suzanne Collins and me, sitting on her desk!

Ooooh, what a pretty signature stamp!

And do you want to know the best part?! Of course, you do!

I was able to get TWO copies of Mockingjay signed (okay well, it's really a stamp b/c Suzanne Collins hurt her wrist, BUT it's a stamp specially made just for this tour! So, still awesome!) And because I have two copies I am going to have a giveaway!! One of you, lovely readers, will get a free specially stamped copy! Yay!! Cool, right?

*Contest Closed*

  1. I think it's absolutely hilarious that you have more 'giddiness' over your signed book than of your husband coming home! How's Greg taking that?! ;) Oh, and good luck with this contest everyone :)

  6. Hmm, let me think about this...Yes I want a signed copy of Mockingjay! I just became a follower and I tweeted about the contest (@foreverjuly). Thanks for your generosity!

    Any insights into what Suzanne Collins was like? She seems softspoken to me.


  7. She wasn't too soft spoken, just a little bit. But she was extremely nice!

  8. Wow. What this do for my street cred in Room 210? I will follow and retweet this. . .
