Becca Fitzpatrick + Costco = Crazed Book Fan (me)

My writing buddy, Peggy the pen master, and I trekked it over to the American Fork Costco on Saturday to talk with the newest New York Times bestselling author: Becca Fitzpatrick.  I picked up her book at 12:30 with the intention of reading just a few chapters.  HELLO, I was wrong.  At 4:00 in the morning I finished the fast-paced, thriller/romance.  Of course when I heard she was going to be at Costco, I had to meet her.  Here's why:

1.   She was totally down to earth and not at all freaked out by my overly-excited hug.

2.   She looked very authorly.  Which then I got to thinking . . . If I changed out my housewife, frazzled mom look, and started wearing knit tops and cardigans, would I write better?

3.   Can I just say, GREAT HAIR!  Dang, I would love to have her locks.

4.   Her book grabs you from the get-go.  Really.  From the first page, I couldn't put it down.  And now that I've purchased it, and had her sign it, Hush Hush has just been placed on my "Do Not Touch" shelf.  Which means, Sorry, ya'll can't borrow it.  Or touch it.

Ahh-- Good times, good times. Did you notice what else was amazing about her? Her handwriting! That was some seriously good handwriting. Especially considering how much she must've used it doing two book signings in one day.

(You should take a pic of what she wrote in your book and post it! Then everyone else can be amazed at it, too.)

It's a good thing requested this from the library since it's on your do not touch shelf.

Well since it's no longer available to borrow from your house I've put my name on the list for it at the library.
