On May 8th, 2010 I met Charlaine Harris at a book signing in San Diego, CA at Mysterious Galaxy Book Store. Harris is the author of the popular Southern Vampire Mysterious, which later became the basis for the HBO show, True Blood. She was there signing her latest release in the series, Dead in the Family.
I was so excited to meet her! San Diego isn’t exactly a short drive for me, but once I heard she would be there, I had to go. I was actually at the LA Times Festival of books when I heard about the event as I walked by the booth Mysterious Galaxy had there. Charlaine was so sweet, I loved her Southern accent! There were so many people there to meet her, and she stayed for HOURS signing books, I was amazed!
I can’t wait to meet her again and have her sign my next book 🙂
