I've had a really great February. At the beginning of the month, I got my first piece of 'mail' from America. Inside, were signed postcards from Sarah Crossan(Author of Breathe-which I am reading at the moment).
I love Sarah's autograph and how she signed in pink pen! I was very excited when these came through the post. Along with getting 'mail' I also received an invite onto my first Blog Tour just last week. I'm the host of the Geek Girl Blog Tour on 7th March and will be interviewing Holly Smale, the author.
I had been counting down to the 13th February for months, so when it came I couldn't help sighing in relief and heading to my nearest cinema to see Beautiful Creatures with a friend. I completely enjoyed it, it wasn't just the romance and story I couldn't wait to see brought alive, but I was also always laughing at the humour in the adaptation. The ending was one of the biggest surprises I've had so I can't help saying I will be shocked if you don't make a sequel after leaving Beautiful Creatures on the cliff-hanger it did. February was the month of St Valentine, which I always find really sweet. I spent my day typing up an English Essay but that's another story.
The biggest part of this month for me was that I got to attend my first Conference. I learnt a lot at the Conference and met so many talented, friendly people and I spent most of the day talking to them. The great thing about a Conference is what you get to learn. I was one of the youngest there so, to get the chance to listen to people who have had experience of the Publishing Industry was a big thing to me. Catherine Fisher(New York Times bestselling author of Incarceon) was there-and when my dad dragged me over to get my book signed I couldn't help but be embarrassed. She was lovely, signing my book and engaging in a quick conversation with us. She also did a talk later that afternoon, which opened-my-eyes to how tough the publishing world actually is. The talk itself was incredible, I was hanging onto her every word-I even got writing advice from her! Discussing The Hunger Games was also a big part of my day. I met one of the people who published it, naturally I was very excited.
