Iowa Signing with Maria V. Snyder

So as you may know, Maria V. Snyder is one of my all time fave authors! And is the reason why I was absent this weekend! She was in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, a mere 4 and a half hours away from me! And since I began reading Maria in 2006 this was the closest she's ever gotten to me so I had to go!

I came to the simple B&N signing and it was fun. Basically hung out with Maria and the other readers who came to visit! Quite a few of us made the journey to see her as she hasn't really come out this way towards the midwest!

It was a lot of fun! I had dinner with Maria and another reader who made a trip from Montana! There was even another reader, I believe she was from Indiana and she came dressed as Yelena!! It was awesome!



And now for the giveaway! Since I was away all weekend, I am honoring two lucky winners a SIGNED book by Maria V. Snyder! 

Turns out Poison Study--her first book--is out of print! Cause I wanted to give that one away! Instead I bring you Storm Glass in its new mass market paperback cover, that's the same cover--just slightly tweaked--as the Australian ones! And the companion book called Inside which holds Maria's only YA novels, Inside Out and Outside In! This was a freaking awesome series! But due to low sales, the pubs didn't want more. Even though the story isn't finished! So naturally I had to buy a copy, every sale counts, and hope that one day the series can be completed! I've seen it happen! Remember the Wicked series by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie? SO yeah, it can happen!



And unfortunately, I have to make this giveaway US only. Sorry! There will be two winners for this as well! One book per person.

  1. What a great opportunity! I've never been to a book signing so I'm kinda jealous over here. I have only read one MVS book (Poison Study) and loved it! I need to finish up that story soon. If I win, I would love a copy of Storm Glass...pretty cover...

    Thanks for the giveaway!
