So…Philly was pretty amazing. One of my good friends was the perfect host to show me around her home town. Her table was next to mine, my best friend was my assistant, the blog organizing the signing did an amazing job, and well, it was a pretty special intro into the signing authors world. I made some new friends, had my first “fangirl” which was probably one of the coolest things….ever. It was also one of the most humbling experiences, too. Meeting people who so enjoyed words that translated from my thoughts to paper? Crazy. But, crazy AWESOME. I figured I would share some pics from it, too. :)
My table set up, I was SO nervous!
A collage of some awesome readers I met <3
All in all, it was such a great opportunity and one of the coolest things I’ve done to date. Maybe they’ll be many more in my future. Gotta keep writing to make it happen :)
Now, on to the second part of my bucket list hoopla. I think you poets will appreciate this! Whilst in Philly, I got to visit and be inside of…Edgar Allen Poe’s house!!!!!!! Yes, you read that correctly, I was in his FREAKING HOUSE. I almost cried I was so excited. He is one of my favorite poets ever. It was so surreal, I went picture happy but also have a little collage of my time there. I will post below :)
All in all, the vacation was exactly what I needed. I am now refreshed and ready to turn out my second novel, then third, and fourth, and well… you know where I’m going with this haha.
Thanks for stopping by :)
Just hanging at Eddy’s house…
I also got to visit Eastern State Penitentiary. It was HUGE and kind of creepy but also, really awesome. Philly has some rich and interesting history. In case you’re interested, I did snag a pic of Al Capone’s cell. Now I’m really leaving…
Al Capone’s cell. They had it furnished to what it would’ve looked like when he was there.
