In Which I Meet 4 Awesome Authors

St Patrick's Day was last night.

What were you doing. Drinking?

Yea well I was hanging out with all my friends and 4 amazing authors! See, now I bet you and your hang over are jealous, aren't you?

Thought so.

The night began with the gathering with of Bloggers at Old Chicago, and gathering of course is always used when there are only 3 of us.

We waited however to take a photo until a bunch of us were together, so as not to seem so lame *he he* WE are so not lame!

Along with my new blogger friends, were my long time friends, book club members and all around best girls you could ever know! (someone thinks she funny and snuck a book in that doesn't belong..can you see it?)

And of course, what you all have been waiting for (who wants to look at me any way?) here's the ladies of the hour, in a rather non flattering photo that they may take time to tweet me about in fact (sorry!)

Each of the Authors, Leah Clifford, Claudia Gray, Courtney Allison Moulton and Kimberly Derting (L-R) chatted a few minutes about themselves and read form each of their books.

Then they all answered questions and signed books, gave us swag. Indulged us as we hung around after for photos and more questions and we're all around amazing!

I decided that a t-shirt was in order for this night so I picked my favorite quote from Leah Clifford's debut book A Touch Mortal: "The water's not even blue, jackass" and away I went with photoshop and some iron on print offs :0) Here's what it looked like

And Leah LOVED it, I was so excited - she even brought me some amazing earrings that are totally symbolic of her book. Big hoops with a skull, a heart and an angel wing on it! Here's Leah and I - the earing are hiding under my hair. Sorry. I'm sure you will see them soon, because I LOVE them and will wear them every where!

It was an amazing night, with amazing people. Thank you to all the amazing ladies who came out and gave their time to meet us, and all their other waiting fans.
