Aggggghhhh! Look at who I met!
That's right - I got to see Rainbow Rowell, Stephanie Perkins and Gayle Forman!
I can't believe it either.
I was SHAKING when they walked in.
Oh gosh. I have so much to say, I will write a separate post on each author.
I was flustered when I met Gayle Forman. With the other two authors, I was in line for a bit. I had time to think about what I was going to say, and listened to what other people were saying. I could process. I was REALLY worried that I would miss Gayle Forman. But there was no line. She was ready right away because most people started at her table and were waiting in line for Rainbow Rowell and Stephanie Perkins then. I went about things in a different order, I guess.
So all I could think to say was, "I was so worried I'd miss you." (She said, "Oh, no I'm right here these are just bookstore copies. Rainbow's my ride!" and "I can't wait to read Just One Year I was so worried it wouldn't come in time it took forever to get here." She said the pre-orders took longer for some reason and I said "I like your hair." (Like one of my five year olds at storytime. Oof.) But she was nice, and said, "Thank you! It's clean! I just washed it this morning!"
I think it's such a pretty color and so curly. Of course, the fact that it's clean helps, too. Thanks Gayle, for the clean, pretty hair and the fab books!
(Yes, two of the three authors were redheads. I was super excited about this.)
Poor Gayle, I just worried at her a lot. Haha, she was super nice though.
Thanks for coming to Omaha ladies! It was so much fun!
