Parajunkee & BookAddict Crash Undead Con!

This weekend was the Vampire Lestat Fan Club's Undead Con at the Hotel Montleone in New Orleans. You say Undead and I say "I'm there". Problem is, the posting was very last minute so I didn't sign up for the conference. But --- I had to go see Jeaniene Frost!

So, Patti from bookaddictpatti.com and I snuck into the hotel and crashed the party. Ok...we did have permission. ;)

Ms. Frost was a lot more talkative than I expected and very friendly. The signing was very small, maybe 20 people at the most. She took the time and talked and took pictures with everyone. Patti and I were kind of disappointed because the bookseller that was hosting the signing didn't have the Night Huntress series! Only the two companions, First Drop and Eternal Kiss. Both good books, but Patti wanted to get the famous Chapter 32 signed of the 2nd book and I wanted to pick up the whole series, because I have them on kindle. Phooey. But, because this was a very unpublicized signing I'm sure they didn't expect a huge turnout.

Jeaniene Frost & Me
 Ms. Frost is the author of the Night Huntress Series & The Night Huntress World series.

Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, Book 1)One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress, Book 2)First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World, Book 1)Eternal Kiss of Darkness (Night Huntress World, Book 2)

Along with meeting the illustrious Ms. Frost, we also got to meet Karen Essex the author of Dracula in Love. I've heard wonderful things about the book - so I was excited to pick up a copy and get it signed. Both authors were wonderful. I have to say, I'm kind of jealous of these ladies and their red hair. Believe it or not before I got pregnant my head was a bit red...now the inner goth wants out.

I had a great time - it was kind of nice that it was so small and we got to chat with Ms. Frost a bit.
