PLUS..

I went to my local indie bookstore, Mysterious Galaxy, yesterday to celebrate its 19th Birthday and guess who was there?! Brodi Ashton (author or Everneath) and Bree Despain (author of the Dark Divine trilogy)!! They talked a little about themselves, then about each other, took some questions and read an excerpt from their books and then there was a book signing afterwards! It was so awesome because both Brodi and Bree recognized/remembered me from twitter and we got to chat and take pictures. It was so so so fun. I LOVE meeting authors. It's the best experience, ever. <3 :)

Fun Facts: 
-Did you know that Bree Despain titled Brodi Ashton's Everneath? It's true!
-Everneath was originally called Broken then Underneath before becoming Everneath!
-Brodi says that Bree gets pretty cranky when she doesn't eat meat! lol!
-The beginning scenes of Everneath was based off of Brodi's friend.
-Bree and Brodi met and became friends when attending the WRONG party. lol
-The Dark Divine book was intended as a stand alone! *gasp*
-Bree helped Brodi build up what the "Everneath" is like for Everbound!
-The "I Remember note" scene in Everneath always makes Brodi's face turn red ;)
-Bree is open for a fourth book in the Dark Divine trilogy if her pub asks, but for her.. it's finished.
