My friend and I attended the signing, and had so much fun! There were so many people there! Melissa was introduced, and so was another author, Tera Lynn Childs. Then, Melissa started talking about her series and read a little bit from her upcoming book, THE VAN ALEN LEGACY.
After that, she answered a few questions like:
When you were writing about Schuyler, was there a certain person you had in mind?
She answered by saying that not many people like the answer to this question, but that's just who she imagined the character to look like. She said Mary-Kate Olsen (when she was in good health, and really pretty.)
If you could choose a cast roles for your characters, who would the actors/actresses be?
She said that the CW had actually considered BLUE BLOODS for a TV series, but that didn't work out, sadly. However, she did say that they had an ideal Schuyler and Mimi. For Schuyler they wanted Kristen Stewart (I hate this choice) and for Mimi they wanted Amanda Seyfried.
How many books are going to be in the series?
Melissa said that she imagined about ten books for the series, but that she didn't want to keep the series going if there was nothing else to tell.
After a couple more questions, we lined up and she started to sign our books. I was standing right behind Tera Lynn Childs (author of OH.MY.GODS and GODDESS BOOT CAMP) but was too scared to introduce myself.
When it came to be my turn, I introduced myself and we chatted for a couple of minutes, then we took a picture after she signed my books! It was really fun :D Here is a picture of Melissa de la Cruz and I.
I even got an extra copy of REVELATIONS signed! So I'll have that contest up either later today, or tomorrow!
