Sarah Rees Brennan's Signing


HUGE poster as seen from outside the very cool Home Bar in London Town.

Monday night we trekked over the width of London to meet debut author Sarah Rees Brennan as she did her signing at The Home Bar, courtesy of Trisha and Tanya of Murder One (Book and Film Club).

Sarah looking incredibly elegant and modest whilst signing books for her fans.


A fan has made this amazing diagram of the characters in The Demon's Lexicon - I've kept the picture large, so when you click on it, you'll be able to see it in greater detail.

Ah, the things we make authors do for a good photo opportunity. Thanks to Kaz coaxing Sarah we got this shot of Sarah snogging her main fella in the novel, Nick! To much hooting and hollering from everyone else. It was fab.

These two lovely fans were amazing - incredibly sweet and honest in their adoring fan geekdom. I hope they visit MFB - as I need another photo of the silver dagger charm they won!



A lovely arty shot of some people queueing to chat to Sarah - notice all the cameras out capturing the moment.

This troupe hurtled around the signing area and all of them piled in to get photos taken with Sarah. I took a variety of photos for several of them. Their enthusiasm was catching. My face ached from laughing so much!

Mark hid at the back, snacking on popcorn and chatting to Kaz and Trisha. I made new friends and handed out business cards like it's going out of fashion. We headed off after the draw and before the flick started - it was a long tiring day and I had to get home for some zzz's.

It was fantastic to get a chance to meet the whirlwind that is Sarah and her publicist from Simon and Schuster, Kat. I grabbed some party goodies for the site, as part of a competition later this week to accompany a fantastic guest blog from Sarah.

Thanks to Trisha & Tanya for hosting this, thanks to Sarah for writing an awesome book and for coming out to play and to Kat and S&S for thinking that this was a good idea!

Ooh, does that T-shirt say "I'm an accountant, not a fighter"? Awesome :-)

Aww, sorry I couldn't make it. Would have been nice to see everyone. My train got all messed up, so instead of arriving at 14:12, I didn't get to London until after 5. Another time, then!

Dude, I love the way you make it look like I wasn't doing anything - chatting with Mark in the back. LOLOL!!

Huh. What about all the photo-taking for Trisha & running round for AN HOUR signing people up for The Eternal Kiss giveaway. *pouts*

Hi Liz,

It's Kathy (the fan who won the silver knife charm). Just popping by to say i've seen the post, love the pictures, and am fully intending on sending you pictures of the charm, but my internet at home is very dead at the moment so I've only been able to sneak in a few moments at work!

Ta,
Kathy

Hi Tez,

Yes that's what the t-shirt says :) One of the rare occasions you'll see an accountant proud to admin the fact :p
