I had lots of fun at the Sarah J. Maas signing in Cinci this past Thursday! She was so adorable and awesome! I also got to see Amanda @ Confessions of a Bookie Monster again. Woop! There’s a video below if you’re interested enough to hear the whole panel, but since it’s super long I’m going to do a quick recap: Sarah talked about how she started off writing on fanfic sites and that she had a big fanbase before she ever got published. She was a nerd growing up but she went through preppy phases. She feels lucky and blessed to have made it so far because she didn’t ever think she would get where she is now, and sometimes it feels like it’s someone else’s life. We also learned that her great grandparents were both in concentration camps (hence Calaena’s time in the salt mines), she likes Gods and mythology, her maps were drawn by one of her fans, and Throne of Glass is going to be a 6 to 7 book series. She hates when dogs die in books and movies and vowed she would never kill a dog (Fleetfoot is safe!), except for that one really mean one in Throne of Glass, which she didn’t even remember but one of the girls in the crowd reminded her. Oh yeah, and she’s Team Chaol ;)
CAUTION: If you have not seen the new Riddick movie, don’t watch the last 2 minutes! There is a huge spoiler!! (I haven’t seen it and it’s kind of ruined for me now…)
Sorry the sound is so awful!
