First off, I'd like to apologize for not posting much updates. For anything more up to date follow #SmartChicks hashtag on Twitter or me as @ReverieBR for pics, gossip and just fun nonesense.
Secondly, HOLY MOLY how tired I am but yet am having such a blast meeting everyone and hanging with the chicks. I am surprised they haven't kicked my crazy ass out by now so at least for that I am indebted!
I was a bit awestruck on Monday as I made my way into the Austin secret signing/press area and introduced myself to Melissa. But behind all the awesome is by far the most talented and sweet and caring person I've met. ALL the chicks have been so great and HILARIOUS! I wish I can share half the jokes that happened while out with the likes of Sarah Rees Brennan, who I found out is a master story-teller. Or that Rachel Vincent is so cute and adorable, but don't ever mention that to her face. Or that Kimberly Derting wanted to be a trucker chick....
I would share all those jokes, but I am bad joke teller. All I can say is if you can make ANY of the final stops (see below) you HAVE to! These girls are beyond awesome and funny and worth the drive, or wait or weight of carrying all those books!
Here's some pics of who I've met and why I am still jumping up and down with excitement that I am even here!
AND... I got to meet most of my book trailer authors!
Lisa Desrochers and Kimberly Derting WHO I ADORE!!!! Love you girls!
And then Heidi Kling showed up and surprised me! I miss you already, hon!
And these two go without saying since they are like m family!
Stay tuned for more pics and a big post on where the chicks have been and done while on tour!
