I’m not use to blogging but I have to tell you about my wonderful weekend away at FanFare 2013 with the Queen of Paranormal Romance herself Christine Feehan and her guest author C.L. Wilson! It started off by being dropped off at my friend’s house and from there we traveled to the event. It was fun! We arrived at the hotel, we got our room, and settled in. See our hotel is beautiful!
Then we went down to registration. We got a bag full of goodies! Books, plants, book marks, plus many more items. Check out all the goodies we got!
That is a lot of goodies we were not expecting! After registration we went to the Book reading where some of the passages from both the Author’s books were read. After that it was time for the Speak Easy!! Yes we dressed up and had a wonderful time! That is Teresa and I at the Speak Easy! I’m in the black hat.
On top of just eating on yummy food, we also got to play some poker, and met one of our favorite authors Christine Feehan!
It was a wonderful first night and introduction into FanFare.
The second day we were there we had Fango Brunch. This is me before we went downstairs for brunch
Fango is like Bingo but Fango go! The Fango cards instead of having numbers, were Book Titles, and Characters, from what Christine has written! See!
And did I mention the food? It was very yummy! Eggs, Chicken Sausage, Potatoes, Fruit, and Pastries!
Fango was fun! We even won prizes! This is what I got! An autographed book from C.L. Wilson, and a coffee mug with a picture of one of her creatures!
After that we had time to explore and relax. It was fun!
From there we went to the Author Chat! We got to ask questions to Christine Feehan and C.L. Wilson and they answered! Furthermore, Christine unveiled her new books! Dark Lycan and Dark Wolf! These books are the first and second books to a trilogy of Dimitri and Skylar’s story! This was a special surprise for all of us who love the Dark Series (Carpathians) and have been waiting for their story for years!
After that we rested for a few and headed to the book signing and Fairy Card reader! I got my favorite two Dark Series books signed by Christine and I bought the third book to C.L. Wilson’s series so she could sign it for me! After that I went to my Fairy Card reading. I wish I could say the reading brought some good news but it wasn’t. However, I will survive and move on.
After the book signing we had to get ready for the Murder Mystery Dinner!
The Dinner was fantastic!! I haven’t laughed so hard in a while. The actors were amazing and the audience was just wonderful for participating!
Oh and the food was excellent too!
The next morning we got up, packed, and went exploring.
So after exploring it was time for the Farewell Brunch 😦
It was a wonderful experience that I’ll never forget! I got a lot of goodies! There are even more goodies that I haven’t taken pictures of yet. And I plan to make this a yearly getaway weekend! However, in the end it’s not about how many goodies I got, it’s about the experience and friendships I have made over the weekend with my fellow book lovers.
