Heir of Fire Launch Party aka Fangirling to the Extreme

I’m not sure when authors reached the level where girls were fangirling over meeting them, but I think it’s an amazing and wonderful thing.  Maybe it started with JK Rowling? Who knows.  All I know is I was totally fangirling at the Heir of Fire launch party at Books of Wonder in NYC.

Sarah J. Maas was joined by her two besties, the amazing Susan Dennard and Alexandra Bracken.

The room was packed; Jess and I squeezed our way toward the back.  We were surrounded by a bunch of teenage girls, but some older ones as well, waiting to hear the panel.  It was a fun, informal, girls get-together (ok, a few boys were thrown into the mix as well), where Sarah, Susan, and Alexandra discussed Star Wars, Sailor Moon, Tamora Pierce, Outlander, and some embarrassing early writing samples from High School.

I think everybody in that room wanted to be friends with them by the end of the night–that’s how down to earth and fun the three of them are.
