|Sarah J Maas, me, Alexandra Bracken, & Daw Metcalf|
Saturday night, I was fortunate enough to attend Sarah J Maas's Heir of Fire tour. My sister and I drove approximately two hours to get there, we left early in case there was traffic and scored front row seats! This was my first book signing event and I LOVED every minute of it. The librarian introduced each author with a quick bio with some fun facts, and then he asked some awesome questions that really made the authors think.
Sarah was the "headliner" of the event, but after hearing Alexandra and Dawn's answers, I quickly became a fan of them as well. And of course I had to have their books and meet them too.
Here are some fun facts I learned at the event about Sarah and her Throne of Glass series:
- Sarah considers herself a "method writer" and she often acts out scenes while writing
- Throne of Glass was inspired by Cinderella
- If she were to cast any actors (from any time) in a movie adaptation of Throne of Glass, she would choose Sam Worthington (from Avatar) as Chaol, Vivien Leigh for Celaena, and Sam Heughan (from Outlander) for Rowan
- Sarah has a new series coming out (hopefully May 2015) called A Court of Throne and Roses which is inspired by Beauty and the Beast
- When asked about world building, Sarah coined the term "worlding"
All three authors agreed that if they were casting a movie adaptation of their books, it was most important for actors to have the right essence for their characters.
Here is a clip of one of my favorite questions from the event:
What would happen if your characters were transported to our world?
After the Q&A session, the authors signed books.
This was truly my favorite part because all three took the time to chat with every person in line while signing their books. Sarah even had her own copy of Throne of Glass that she asked us to sign.
