More pics and books from the Decatur Book Festival!!!

Book Festival Flyer!

This is the fantasy world building panel: 
Saundra Mitchell (Shadowed Summer), Jessica Verday (The Hollow), Cinda Williams Chima (Warrior Heir series), and Kathleen Duey (Skin Hunger and Sacred Scars).

I also got to meet: 
Carrie Ryan!

Alyxandra Harvey!
I got a few books at the signings and am waiting for some book plates for books I already own that I didn't bring with me!  The books I got at the signings were:
Shadowed Summer by Saundra Mitchell, Hearts at Stake and Blood Feud by Alyxandra Harvey, The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan, The Hollow by Jessica Verday, and The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima.  

I met other authors too - I got signed books, but forgot to get photographs!
Gale Borger - Totally Buzzed, Sam Morton - Betrayed, Candace Christian - Summer of Seven, and Nick Valentino - Thomas Riley.   I also got books signed by Peter Abrahams (Into the Dark) and T.A. Ridgell (Operation Stiletto) - but didn't get to meet the authors.  I also got a few books that aren't signed and didn't meet the authors either - Allon: Book 1 by Shawn Lamo, Pattern of Vengeance by C. Hyytinen, Each Little Bird That Sings and The Aurora County All-Stars by Deborah Wiles, and Pretty Pretty by K.C. Oliver.

I couldn't walk away from a discounted book booth without two audio books too!  So I got Knock Out by Catherine Coulter and Blood Game by Iris Johansen - both on CD.

Saundra Mitchell sent me back with a stack of book marks for my kids at school too!
