Unmarked by Kami Garcia Release Event at B&N at The Grove

Ever since I was introduced to the Beautiful Creatures Series written by co-authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, I have been following these two authors. I absolutely fell in love with their characters in this series. Since then, these two amazing writers have released their solo books as well. So, you can imagine my excitement when I found out that Kami Garcia was scheduled for an event at the Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles. I was absolutely stoked about it, and I knew I cannot miss it! But, of course, this event was scheduled after the weekend I move my daughter in to her dorm up at UC Davis. So, yah, I was in for a very busy five days...hahaha!! But...oh so worth it! Not only that...this Barnes & Noble store is one of my favorite ones to go to, especially because of the amazing events that takes place there. Yes, I do make the drive to Los Angeles for these events!

Well, on September 30, a few friends and and I attended the fun event celebrating the release of Kami Garcia's book, Unmarked, the second book in The Legions Series. We even had another amazing author, Melissa dela Cruz, to moderate this discussion with Kami! What fun this night was! I'm always learning something new about these authors...it just makes me admire what they even more! It also makes me enjoy reading their books even more....and appreciate everything they put into writing these amazing stories that fans loves to read about!

What an amazing night filled with various authors! Several authors joined in for a fun lightning round of questions and answers! And...that was hilarious! However, I had to contain myself since I was holding the camera...hahaha!! Oh the pain of not being able to really let my laugh out...hahaha! The amazing authors that participated in this fun lightning round were: Katie Alender, Lissa Price, Chrstopher Rice, Gretchen McNeil, Robyn Schneider, Eric Shaw Quinn, and Margaret Stohl...as host for this lightning round.
