Leanna Renee Hieber Signing (4/27/10)

I was fortunate enough to attend Leanna Renee Hieber's signing and release party on April 27th at a local Barnes and Noble.  It was so much fun, and I was even more excited for this signing than I was for last year's because I knew what the novel was about, how amazing the novel was, and how amazing Leanna is. 

When we got there, of course I had to sit in the front row.  :D  Leanna had a wonderful turn out and I told my dad that no one deserved it more than Leanna.  Honestly, Leanna is just an all around genuine person and she's so down-to-Earth.  If you ever have the chance to meet her, go to the signing or whatever because you won't regret it.  She makes you feel right at home even if you don't know her all that well or at all.

So the shirt I wore on Tuesday said (on the front) Team Alexi (and on the back) Because real men see ghosts.  Leanna seemed to enjoy this. 

I had so much fun and it just continues to amaze me how inspirational Leanna Renee Hieber is to me.  She told me to never quit writing or else she's going to come find me and be like "What's going on?" *oh and her ghosts are going to haunt me. :) *

Leanna, thank you so much - for everything!

With eteral love and blessings,

That sounds like so much more fun than getting to bed early! This lady seems pretty cool, too. I'm glad you had fun :)

@ Carly Gaile Yeah, it was a lot of fun! I wish you could've come. She was at our school on Monday, but she only spoke to my team. :( Leanna is amazing and has been a blessing to me. She never ceases to amaze and inspire me!
