Authors In The OC event is a book signing event with a Meet & Greet afterwards. We come together to meet our favorite authors, meet new ones and hang out with our fellow book lovers while raising money for a very good cause: Our Tatas!

Although I was exhausted from working the night before, I was determined not to miss this exciting event...even if I was late, I wanted to meet these amazing authors! This was my first time going to this event, and I am so glad that I didn't miss too much of it. Before I continue, check out the list of authors who donated their time and books for this cause!
What a line up! And, I was just so amazed when I got there! Although I did not know most of the authors, I did recognize some names since I hosted some blog tours for their books. However, a friend told me that Rebecca Ethington was not in attendance. I was somewhat disappointed that she didn't make it. I would have loved to catch up with her as well since meeting her at the L.A. Times Festival of Books (back in April). The only other author that I had already met from previous events was Mary Ting. I always enjoy meeting authors again, so to just catch up with them and the latest on their writing and author adventures. I don't think I could ever get tired of meeting authors over and over again. They, after all, create the worlds that book lovers enjoy reading. It's always fun to keep up to date with favorite authors! Authors were just as excited to meet fans as book lovers were to be meeting them. It was such a rush...on overload...haha!
The authors I did meet, were, oh so, excited when I mentioned that I have a blog! I was excited, they were excited...it just made for an exciting day! They were more than willing to sign everything I asked for...for giveaway purposes. Author Lexi Buchanan even gave me one of her novellas (free) to use as a giveaway prize! Oh my goodness! I love authors! Here are a few photos of this amazing event!
