On Saturday I attended the Authors On the Bay event in San Francisco. This was my first multi-author signing event so I was really excited! This event featured the following romance authors:
Authors On The Bay was hosted by author Rachael Wade, who donated 100% of her book sales at the event to The Looking Out Foundation, an arts-based foundation dedicated to serving a wide variety of causes in need.
I had a really great time! It was so exciting to meet so many authors. Since I read on my Nook I made a scrapbook of all the book covers for the authors to sign. This was a great idea I saw on the Facebook page for the event. But I did buy some paperbacks to sign for future giveaways!
I had my fangirl moment with author Rachel Van Dyken! I discovered this author’s historical romance series a couple of years ago and I have been a huge fan ever since. For her scrapbook page I included the historical and contemporary romance series covers, and it was great to see her reaction!
Authors On The Bay was a fun event! It was great meeting the authors and other bloggers (especially Shannon from Sexyways of Reading, who I rode in with and was a lot of fun!). But the only thing I was disappointed in was the length of the event. We were allowed only 1 1/5 hours and I wasn’t able to meet all the authors. I did get all my paperbooks signed but it would have been great to meet the other authors. I hope for the next event they will allow a longer time to spend with everyone.
