Sydney Author Event 2016 Recap & Giveaway!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Sydney Author Event for 2016 and had an absolutely brilliant day! I travelled into the city with my mum--who is always my signing companion and so incredibly supportive of my love affair with books--to attend the event which was full with both Australian and International authors alike.

Me and my mum :)
I attended both the AM and PM session which allowed me the opportunity to meet with and chat with so many fabulous people. The organizers did an absolutely fabulous job and the place was packed full of people! There was plenty of fun, giveaways and even members of the NSW Fire service attended to help raise money for charity.


I was sooooooo excited to get to meet, and in some cases see again, authors that I absolutely adore. Meeting Nalini Singh and Christina Lauren were highlights with all three ladies having MASSIVE lines throughout the day. But you bet they were worth waiting for!

Me with authors Nalini Singh, Carmen Jenner, Christina Lauren, J.L. Perry, Leisa Ravyn. Chantal Fernando, Jay McLean and Kylie Scott!

I lugged a massive suitcase full of books to and from the event (with the help of my mum!) and of course bought and picked up a few on the day as well :)

My Nalini Singh books--all signed :)

Signed books by Christina Lauren, J.L. Perry, Chantal Fernando & Kylie Scott
 
My pre-orders. All signed and collected. I also got copies of All Your Reasons and Be The One by Nina Levine which aren't pictured.
 
And being the book hoarder and squirrel I am, I have a few extra copies of books I've been collecting by Kylie Scott, Christina Lauren and Chantal Fernando for future giveaways, along with a lot of swag and book covers signed by the authors.

Signed bookies :)
Saturday really was a fabulous day! The venue is beautiful, easy to get to and the organizers managed to do an even better job that last time, back 2014.

THANK YOU to all the organizers, publishers and authors who made this day so brilliant. I can't wait until Sydney Author Event 2018!

 
And to celebrate how much fun I had at SAE2016 (and to apologize because I've been so MIA from the blog) I'm giving away a SIGNED copy of Sweet Filthy Boy to one lucky winner and a swag pack full of signed goodies to a second. And it's open INTERNATIONALLY!
