This week Lauren Kate, author of the Fallen series, visited Brisbane! I attended her signing yesterday at Dymocks at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, which was fun.
Lauren was really lovely. She chatted to everyone, signed our books, and took photos with anyone who wanted one. I was impressed with how smooth it all ran. Thankfully I arrived early and wasn't in line too long - boy, did that line grow in minutes!
Lauren told me how much she'd been able to travel as an author and how much she's been enjoying her book tour. I told her I hadn't read Passion yet, but was looking forward to finding out more about Luce and Daniel. I also told her I found Luce really frustrating, which made her laugh. She said she did too, but was glad to have Luce grow. I truly liked the way she talked about her characters as if she had no control of them. When I told her that I had some inklings about Luce, she said that book 4 - Rapture - was a surprise to her, but that she hopes I like how everything turns out. Now I'm so intrigued!
It was great meeting Lauren, and I'm definitely looking forward to attending more author signings in the future!
