Roanoke Author Invasion FUN! #RAI15

I've been sharing the authors coming to #RoanokeAuthorInvasion for a few weeks, right?
Let me tell you it was AMAZING.  One of my best weekends ever.
In a matter of 24-36 hours I got to meet 30 wonderful authors.
They were all super nice and I barely fangirled.
I did good with all but one.  Wendy Higgins caught me by complete surprise on Saturday morning.
So, yes I fangirled for all of a minute or so.
Wendy and I after the event.

LOL  I hope I was as composed as I thought the rest of the time.
Did I buy every book I wanted?  No...alas, I couldn't.
However I made out like a bandit and will just buy the rest next year!

Things I learned after this event:
1.Take pics before the event starts are right as you get to meet the author.
Why? By the end of the event my hair was all haywire.
2. I have a crazy exhausted smile.  Example? Check the smile in the pic of me and Cambria Hebert.

LOL  Ok, so let's get to the nitty gritty!!
Here are all my pics!

+Laura Howard and I at the end of the day.  Don't judge! <3 We were exhausted.

There were so many more authors and I missed getting pics somehow. 
I will be much better next year  I promise!

And last but not least my loot.
Books I got while at the event

Books I've been collecting slowly for the past 3 or 4 months to have signed!

were all there and I will remember pics next time y'all. 

Make sure you check out all of these fun and wonderful authors!
