Heather Brewer Book Signing +GIVEAWAY

Just this past Thursday I was extremely lucky to attend a book signing by Heather Brewer. I have loved the Vladimir Tod books forever, so having the chance to meet her was amazing! She was promoting her new book series - a spin off from the Vlad books title The Slayer Chronicles: First Kill. It follows the story of Joss a character out of the Vlad series. I'm super excited to hear more about Joss's life. What's really neat is that Heather said that Joss's books take place during the summer between the Vlad books (the Vlad books follow the school year).

That's pretty cool! But the coolest part of the signing was just listening to Heather talk. She was amazing. She really shared a lot about her life from the fact she was bullied all the way through school - everything from being kicked, punched, hit, pinched and spit on - to what it took to finally get published. It was very inspiring to hear all that she went through and see where she is now. I've been to a lot of author signings, but her's was the best I've been too just because of the message she gave. If you ever get a chance to see her I say go!

Sidenote: one of my former students came to the signing too, and it was so fun to see how excited she was to meet Heather.  And then to watch Heather chat with her was fantastic!  I know it was a great experience for her!
