Austin Book Fest 2016


I attended Austin Book Fest earlier this month and WOW! I had such a blast! I know I’m incredibly late getting this post up and I apologize. This semester of classes is kicking my rear. But let’s get started!

1048295_907928299327161_8613822376181000216_oI got a “candid” picture taken before the event and it’s crazy! I seriously had the best time at the event. You can see my cart behind me. Yes, my arms hurt soooo bad from pushing it, but it was PERFECT for carrying 70+ books around for 4+ hours! If your curious where I got it, go here. I learned some new tips for future signings. I met so many awesome book friends in person. Got to meet so many awesome authors (of course!) I wish I could rewind back and redo the event again!













The haul: (minus one book [My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron — a friend accidentally had my copy])


I got a total of 61 books (60 books in the picture) signed at the event and I call that a huge success. Unfortunately I didn’t get to meet all the authors in the picture- I actually had to have some friends sign them for me. I think the one thing I took away from this was to bring more books for authors I’ve read. I brought like 2 books for almost every author even if I haven’t read them yet.

The Swag:


The Authors I Met:

Like I said, I had an absolute BLAST at ABF! I hope Vilma decides to host again next year because I plan to go next year!
