On Monday, Z and I went to a bookish meetup at local bookstore Third Place Books here in Seattle. We met a couple of local bloggers and authors including
Marilyn of Marilyn's Romance Reviews
Ciara Stewart blogger and author
Wendi of Wendi's Book Corner
Sheila Roberts, author
and the world famous publicist, Miriam Parker of Hachette Book Group.
We traded ARCs and talked about what makes a blog tour successful and interesting. If you are in the area, we will be meeting again probably around the end of October and would love to have more bloggers and authors to chat with!
Since I was at a bookstore, it would have been silly to leave empty-handed so I ended up with two used hardcover books, Jasper Fforde's The Fourth Bear and Umberto Eco's The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana.
Breaking out of our shells,
K and Z
