BOOK SIGNING & SIGNED GIVEAWAYS - SYLVIA DAY - CROSSFIRE SERIES - PENGUIN AUSTRALIA - BIG W BRISBANE - 10TH JUNE 2013



Today I took 'mini me' and hubs into Brisvegas ( Brisbane) for the Sylvia Day book signing at Big W in Elizabeth St. Four hour round trip of driving. Can't wait to tell hubs he has another thing in two weeks. He's a trooper! 

Felicity , publicist with Penguin was there handing out Gideon's Angel , badges and getting us all organized for our books to be signed.


Felicity and me from Penguin

Sylvia signing my book. Note the little book display on the bottom left corner. My flapping arms knocked them over. I gotta get a handle on my arm flapping when I talk, seriously!

Me and Sylvia. I decided to look away from camera, go figure. Sylvia liked my necklace and she is absolutely gorgeous. She had a nice conversation with every single person and gave them a hug. We nearly lost my camera in the hug as I forgot we were gonna hug and we knocked arms.

'Mini me' getting her notebook signed. I did tell Sylvia that she doesn't know you write adult/erotic contemporary, she was just excited to get an autograph. Decked out in her 1D muff hat. I ask 'mini me' if she is gonna hunt whabbits....hehe! I think of Elma Fudd when she wears her 1D hat. ( One Direction)



We got there dead on 12 noon when the signing started and there was a line of about 150 people. Naturally we were at the end. Nearly 2 hours later, it was MY TURN!!! YAY!! 

Seriously, there were only 8 people behind me. So I could have sat down for 2 hours. 

A lovely Sushi company who had a shop in the plaza kept coming by giving us free samples of their Japanese fair. I of course dribbled it down my chin and onto my Gideon badge. I ended up chatting to a lovely Indian girl and an Asian girl about books, so the time passed quickly. Dribbling the Japanese treat down my face , kinda broke the ice. 

Some serious Sylvia fans with piles of books for signing. I had one book and some prints for blog giveaways. They are currently with Sylvia and Felicity and she will post them on to me. 

SooOOoooo, that brings me to my giveaway. I can't show you the signed prints until I get them back. I will insert image here when I get them in.

    1. Kat you have no idea how many glasses ( drinking) I have knocked over and broken, due to the arm flapping when I talk. It is this built in disaster, lol!

      YES!! The Gideon's Angel badge. I was going to show it on here, but I thought those going to see Sylvia can get the surprise of what it looks like:)
