Well, the video. The video of me, that is. This is an edited version of my reading, filmed by my friend Mindy. (There are a couple stills at the start and then the video.)
Another friend filmed a longer version, which I will post once she edits it (she's a professional TV editor, so it's worth the wait!)
I had a great time, and in addition to meeting Ransom Riggs and Kendare Blake, the two talented authors I read with (whose autographed books are now on my bookshelf!), I met several other local authors, including Kathleen O'Dell, Candace Ryan and Timothy Power, and many, many avid booklovers. It's always great to meet other book freaks like myself. :-)
