WINNER: Commenter BARBARA E.
On Thursday, September 26th I attended the Fierce Reads event in Paramus, NJ featuring authors Marissa Meyer, S.A. Bodeen, Leila Sales & Alexandra Coutts.
I was there as the featured blogger, and also the event moderator. I cannot lie, I was a super nervous and had no idea what to expect. I've moderated other events before, but never at a Barnes & Noble; especially not one as big as the one in Paramus, NJ. That place is huge!
Anyway, I arrived a little early so that I could video interview the authors and share it right here on Good Choice Reading. Unfortunately, after going over the video I realized it was not good quality and you can barely hear the authors. I am so disappointed because it was such a great interview! Plus, now I have to buy a brand new camera seeing as this one failed me twice now.
But moving forward, I will say that I had a blast and the authors were really nice and were so excited to be there that it rubbed off on me. I mean I was already excited, but seeing them so happy and ready to mingle with readers made it more exciting!
The event was a success and I hope to do this again in the near future!
One thing I do regret? I was so nervous and excited that I totally forgot to take a photo with the authors. :( I know, what was I thinking? *face palm*
Next time, right? LOL!
A HUGE thank you to Macmillan for giving me such an amazing opportunity. Also, the wonderful staff at Barnes & Noble. They went above and beyond.
Here are some photos of that evening...

They talked a little about their book covers, different genres they like to read, what to expect next, and lots more!
They even asked readers questions and did little giveaways.

After seeing the photos I am even more bummed that I was not able to share the video interview. Such a great night!
