Well it has been a crazy week around here lately, but in between all the craziness I did manage to make it to Borders in Apex yesterday to see Susan Higginbotham. I read Hugh and Bess at the end of last year, wrote up my review and somehow it never made it to a post (I have no idea how that happened), so I will be posting that review Tuesday and then I will have my review up for The Stolen Crown (the short version: read it). I did, however, successfully post my review for The Traitor's Wife last year. Check it out.
Susan was nice enough to not only sign a copy of The Stolen Crown for me but also a copy to give to one of you (details below). This was my first book signing and I was so nervous, my husband Mike was laughing at me because it was so obvious.
Susan was really nice and she didn't even laugh at me when I talked. At one point this is how my side of the conversation went:
You're books are...(me trying to think of a word that makes me sound intelligent) awesome (damn that's not what I was going for). Thank you for writing them. (okay Jess stop talking now because you sound like an idiot).
By the way, I was also laughing nervously because I was holding back the excited giggles.
Seriously, I shouldn't be allowed out in public. I felt a little better when we got out the door and I turned to Mike with what I'm sure was an excited goofy grin on my face and he said "I waved to her on the way out and she waved back." See it wasn't just me that was excited, apparently my excitement rubbed off on Mike and a wave goodbye was all he needed.
Moral of the story is I have to work on my game face.
Now on to the sweet loot...
