As some of you know, I went to my very first signing event on October 24th, 2015! It was definitely an experience to do again. I had a great time and got to meet some truly wonderful, inspirational authors, bloggers and fans. And I confess that I now have the signing "bug". I want to go again and again. In fact, I've already signed up for my next one.
This event was the SASS15 event, held in Greenville, NC at the Convention Center. There were 60+ authors in attendance. Some local, some traveled from far away. One even attended from the UK! Awesome right? Then there was the after party that totally rocked and I may or may not have imbibed one to many mixed drinks ... but it was all in fun.
And did I mention that I won the door prize?? This door prize was EPIC! There were signed books from all the authors and swag galore!
The best part? I got some AMAZING signed books and I got some AWESOME swag that I'll be giving away in my future prize packs. But that's then and this is now.
For this post, I'm giving ONE LUCKY WINNER the ultimate prize pack. This big box of goodies contains FOUR full length SIGNED books plus one SIGNED novella from authors that attended the signing and a lot of swag items from the author's tables (some of it's signed, some of it's not). There's also a Craves the Angst tote that I carried to every table and got each author in attendance to sign. There's a SASS15 swag bag that each fan got at the door. There's also a Coach eReader Case signed by one of the authors, Brittany Lopez, and a bunch of other great prizes, including a laser cut masquerade mask, since we had a masquerade after party, which was AWESOME!
Make sure to check out the giveaway on my Facebook blog page and enter to win!
I'll also be giving away a couple of SASS15 Swag Bags that the attendees got when we arrived. The ladies from SASS were amazing and offered up several for my giveaways. So keep a look out for those in the near future.
Really though, I had such a great time and the people were so wonderful and I wondered why I waited so long to attend one of these events.
And if you're interested, this same group is having another event in Norfolk, VA, July 8 & 9th, 2015. Check out the list of authors and get your tickets by clicking on the link below. Trust me, it's totally worth it!
