And now that that's over, and I am seriously excited about all the books I got this week, here's some photos from Richelle's signing! First she read an excerpt from the book then did a Q&A before settling in to sign books.

I did take my orange Chucks to get signed, as well as some books and my Oh, Bleep t-shirt, which you can see in the bottom picture... where I'm peeking in as well. Overall, it was a seriously fantastic night. My friend went with me, and we met up with Arena from The Nerd's Wife, who, by the way, has a contest going for some signed copies of Last Sacrifice.
