So, I met Claudia Gray today at her book signing at Black Cat Books at Paddington. Total fan girl moment.
I really wanted to play it cool, you know, one writer to another, but every time I meet authors I admire I turn into the amazing grinning woman who talks too fast. (Not that you can tell from this photo…And no, I didn’t plan on getting this shot, hence the lack of discernible effort with my hair.)
I’ve been a fan through the Evernight series (reviews over on Other Worlds) and have been looking forward to her latest release, Balthazar, for months. I finally bought a copy this week – and it’s now signed. It’s next on my reading list (unless another library book arrives and takes priority in my reading schedule).
Claudia was lovely and very generous with her time with fans. She was off to Dymocks in the city straight after the Black Cat event, where I hope she met another bunch of appreciative readers.
