Books at Comic Con! Yes!!

This is the last post and I saved my favorite topic to end with—BOOKS!

A lot of my author friends were here at Comic Con. Many of them were doing presentations, panels, and/or had booths. I did not see them, but I know they were there because 1) their names were in the program, and 2) I've seen them posting pics on Facebook. I wish I had photos and could spotlight each and every one of them but…

So here's who I did see.


Loved his Fablehaven series and the Pingo books. Still trying to catch up on the Beyonders series and Candy Shop War books. Here he's getting ready for a book signing of his newest, Five Kingdoms, at the Shadow Mountain booth.

And speaking of Shadow Mountain

This is one side of their booth.



And here is the other side. They had so many books there! A lot of them I've read and loved. Others are on my To Read list.



I took her photo because she was dressed up. There were several other authors on either side of her, some I took photos of as well, but they turned out all blurry. So unfortunately, they only get a shout out and not a photo. They were:









Both an author and an illustrator, this guy is a great presenter and I'm sad he won't be at Storymakers this year. I didn't get to say hello to him, but I met his wife, Mrs. Tayler (sorry, I forgot your first name), who has a book coming out soon.




Michaelbrent and I know each other via email and facebook but we've never met in person. I've read and liked a few of his books, but there are some I can't read because he's just too freaking scarey. He was off teaching a class when I went by his booth, but his mom was there. And look at her steampunk hat. Loved it!


Barnes and Noble Booth

So I was pointing out to Julie all the books on this table that I've read and/or own, not realizing that standing right next to the table was…



I've read several of her books and liked them all. And here I am going all fan-girl on her.



By the way, her hair is not normally pink but she dressed up. Because she's just cool like that!



And there you go. My adventures at Comic Con. Thanks again to Jay and Amy of The Browsers, KSL radio, and Salt Lake Comic Con for the free tickets. I loved it and hope to make this a regular event—even if I have to pay next time.
