So I was lucky enough to spend an evening with Samantha Shannon at Waterstones Piccadilly, whistles she was touring on her The Song Rising Tour.
I have previously seen Samantha whilst she hosted a YA authors chat alongside Sarah J Mass at London Comic Con on Saturday 5th October 2013. She had just released The Bone Season, which I picked up whilst there.
Anyways long story short, I am now a massive fan of The Bone Season and Samantha herself.
In usual Waterstones style, they didn’t hold back with there event – wine, book swag (TBS pins, Transfer tattoos etc) and a great 1 hr chat, followed by Q & A with Samantha. One of my most memorable moments is Samantha doing her Warden voice – absolutely BRILLIANT! What a humble, funny, quirky and fiery female!
I also made myself a New Years resolution years ago to meet as many of these amazing, inspiring people and get them to sign as many of my books as possible. Adding another one to my shelves!
