Uncommon Criminals Signing (Heist Society Giveaway)

I think we're a little spoiled here were I am as we have an INCREDIBLE library with the ability to host huge/awesome events. This latest one was no exception. They brought in the fabulous Ally Carter author of the Gallagher Girls series (which I am on a waiting list for the first one at the library) and Heist Society (so fun!) and her most recent Uncommon Criminals (sequel to Heist Society).



Me & Jenni waiting in line to get in. Like I said the library is able to host a huge group, I think last I heard it was Ally's largest group at over 200+ people.



I love booky people! Friend, Me, Rachel, CA, Tawnya


Ally's motto is to just leave out the boring stuff so she stood up to speak to us and just jumped right in with Q&A. It was SO fun to still get to hear all her stories and get almost an entire hour of fans questions.


Seriously she's adorable! Cute dress, cute accent, she just seems like we could be friends and go out to lunch. (I wish! Haha.)




A few videos for you to enjoy:


Ally tells us how she decided on Hale's name on her last visit to Utah.
(Sorry the end of the video is shaky, I was laughing and gasping, haha.)



Ally Carter on how she manages her time so she can write.

Ha ha! I love that you posted a link to my contest. Now, people can get both signed if they happen to win both, even if the odds are unlikely. ;)

It was so much fun! I really enjoyed going with all of you! Thanks for waiting in line with me to get tickets too.
