Heist Society: Ally Carter Giveaway



Hey everyone!


On the 4th I went to the Ally Carter signing in San Jose, which was the first stop in her Heist Society Tour. Ally is incredibly sweet and nice, and I am so glad that I went. Since Heist Society doesn't debut until the 9th, the bookstore had copies available early (!!!!). Ally told us about the book, and answered a lot of questions--most of which I can't remember because I'm dumb. I can tell you: Heist Society will be a series. She is getting ready to start working on the second book soon, which makes me really happy because the book was amazing.


I was also the last person to get my books signed. As soon as she sat down to sign, everyone swarmed to her, so I decided to just sit and wait. Good thing I did because I got to talk to her amazing editor, Jen. I gushed a lot about Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins (which is a fantastic book, everyone get it in March!) which Jen edited. We also talked about different things, and it was just amazing to talk to her. When I finally got my books signed, I talked to Ally (who, again, is sooo sweet) and I met her publicist, who was also really nice and amazing. This was probably one of the best author events I've ever been to!


Giveaway Timeee!
