I just wanted to share a fun event I went to yesterday. Bettina Restrepo came to Houston to promote her debut novel Illegal. I loved this book and couldn't wait to meet Bettina in person. Bettina did a reading that almost brought me to tears and then took questions. I could relate to Illegal so this book is really special to me and to hear the author read is such a special treat. I got to spend some time talking to Bettina who I have gotten to know online and she is so much fun in person.
Christin from Between The Covers came out and it was great to see her. Also in attendance were local authors Joy Preble, Crystal Allen, Christina Mandelski, and Jenny Moss. The staff at Blue Willow Bookshop is amazing and I love that you can frequently find signed books.
I have said it before and I'll say it again go get Illegal and support debut authors! Also if you are in the Houston area stop by Blue Willow Bookshop and if you can't make it to Houston and you know your favorite author is signing call and order a personalized copy.
