A couple of weekends ago (Saturday 15th August) I went to the Holly Black and Cassandra Clare talk and book signing at Kinokuniya bookshop with my awesome friend Emily.
Holly and Cassie and two of my favourite authors ever so I was so thrilled to be able to finally meet them! They were so intelligent, funny and encouraging to their readers who are also interested in writing. They are clearly great friends and also really nice people in real life!
On the train down with Emily.
Holly and Cassandra. Holly has awesome blue hair and lipstick which was a cool surprise, she must have changed it recently. Cassandra is gorgeous as a redhead, as always.
Despite the big numbers that turned up, Holly and Cassie had a little chat with everyone which just proves what genuinely sweet ladies they are! Helpfully, Kinokuniya arranged a staff member to take photos of us in front of the authors.
Holly said she had the same dress as me which was so cool!
All in all it was a fantastic day! Spending time with my awesome friend and meeting two ladies I really admire! It has also encouraged me to keep going with my writing. Who knows, I may end up writing a story together with these ladies one day!
