But first, to get to the signing, I had to come down a giant escalator. I hoped nobody would notice, but some friends sold me out when they saw me coming.
I kicked off the event by showing off my "Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner" shirt from Dirty Dancing. I'd told one of my readers I'd wear it, but I ended up getting it hemmed too short--probably because I didn't wash it before giving it to the tailor. Still, I wanted her to know I'd tried, so I brought the shirt along anyway.
Some other cool shirts came out tonight, including this one representing Georgina and her immortal friends' favorite bar, The Cellar.
More Georgina fans soon came to represent with Team Carter and Team Seth shirts.
I also got a fun visist from local Lexington authors, Andrew Shaffer and Tiffany Reisz. Andrew's alter ego, Fanny Merkin, has a Fifty Shades of Grey parody coming out next month, called Fifty Shames of Earl Grey.
One of the biggest surprises of the evening came right at the very end (it was another three hour event): this awesome Belikov-Ivashkov 2012 shirt:
She was even nice enough to make me a complementary Hathaway-Sage one:
All in all, a pretty fun night! I read about Malachi Wolfe again and also talked about Zombie Rose (you're really curious about that now, aren't you?). There was also some speculation about the title of the third Bloodlines book--which will be revealed when the Official Bloodlines Facebook page gets 25,000 likes. They're 500 away, which is crazy since my Facebook page has over 100,000 likes. We can do this, team!
Tomorrow, I'll be heading down to Florida to sign in Fort Lauderdale. There have been some rumors that the event starts at 6, but it's at 7pm--just like the others. The details are here on my website. Thank you, Lexington and Joseph-Beth, for an awesome event!
