Authors After Dark 2010

First I was a little bummed because I confused the dates of this event with a college reunion.  So I never registered for the event.  I wish I would have but I was able to attend for the day on Saturday.  Unfortunately the day passes don't include the meals so I didn't get to eat with the authors.  But other than that it was awesome!  This was the first authors convention of any type that I have attended so I didn't know what to expect.  The authors were all very nice, the panels were interesting and gave you the chance to ask the authors questions related to the topic and their books.  I met authors I haven't read before and will be adding them to by wish list.  The author signing was also on Saturday.  The nice thing about the signing is you were permitted to bring pre-purchased books in to have them signed.  A lot of events, from what I have heard, require you to purchase the books at the event.  Don't get me wrong they did have books to purchase, so I was able to buy some of the books I was interested in.  And you could get them signed.  I got to meet JoJo from JoJo's Book Corner and Larissa from Larissa's Bookish Life.

Ok, so here are some of my pictures from this event.

My apologies to Kris Norris, Mia Watts, Bronwyn Greene & Brynn Paulin the pictures I took of you were blurry so I didn't want to post them.

Later this week I will try to post the what I bought or won at AAD 2010!  Can't wait for next year.
