Where I relive the experience and share all the feels before, during and after meeting these fantastic authors WHO ARE BASICALLY LIFE.
October 11, 2012
When I heard the news that another international author will be signing here, I immediately filed for a leave at work like its a reflex. Authors, particularly international, visit the Philippines very seldom so when there's an event like this, no one should let it pass. These events are once in a lifetime and I was so lucky I was able to attend and meet Gregg Olsen.
Envy and Betrayal from Empty Coffin Series.
Just like the first book signing I attended, I arrived 3 hours early at the book store for the registration. Luckily, there's Bo's Coffee Shop inside the bookstore so I stayed hoping to meet some book bloggers, had light snack and waited for my friend to arrive. I also bought some books on my list and checked if they have the titles I want. When I registered, I was the second person in line for the signing then it didn't take long for the event to start.
LINK of his interview by Authormagazine.com that was shown before the event started.
To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee as a classic counterpart of crime-inspired book. Calling literary agents was what he did din 1988 and that was a risk he took that eventually lead to his first book getting published.
Megan Meier's story and Betrayal was by Amanda Knox's. He also reiterated how he steps up against cyber bullying. Envy for that matter talks about it and how words affect others. And of course, we don't want people we know be a victim of never ending battle against cyber bullying. The last question he gladly answered was my the series named Empty Coffin and he said it was the nick name of the Town in the book!
|Me and lovely Gregg! :D|
Thank you National BookStore and Powerbooks for another great event! Thank you also Gregg for coming and am looking forward to reading Envy and Betrayal soon! You made a girl so happy!
