YEP!!!! I’m at RT 2015, and I met so MANY of our favorites!!! And I’m going to post a fun report soon enough with photos and everything and all the funny hugging and snuggling I did with the authors. God I love ‘em!!!
But first, I just wanted to post this video ’cause it’s kind of hilarious. I met Tijan!!! You know… THE one everyone here loves like crazy, and I SO need to read her books ASAP.
Deborah: I normally stop everything I’m reading just for Tijan …just cant resist Tijan……shes calling my name;)……
Tessa: …Maryse. Must read Fallen Crest High!
Amy: *throws peanut at Maryse* Yep, Fallen Crest High! *looks around and whistles innocently*
Maryse: ‘kayyyyyy I get the hint. Tijan rocks… I already know this!
Amy: Hey Tessa, she admitted up there that Tijan rocks…we’re making progress!
Tessa: Ironically, I never would have found Fallen Crest High or Up in the Air if she hadn’t mentioned it on her blog. *grins* She’s got the power to get us to read stuff she hasn’t even read…
Maryse: *snort* LOL!!! I just know with THAT much love for an author, she’s GOT to be awesome. Some times you just know, ya know?
Deborah: Tijans books are so good I don’t mind the length…..and I’m one of those readers that gets bored real easily……but never with Tijan;)
But I’ve been saying her name wrong this WHOLE time. In fact, we started a funny little quizzing session with everyone to see if it was only me. Nope! Most everyone has been saying her name “my way” and it’s pronounced differently! So here she is, on video, correcting me. Tee hee!
P.S. Fun fact!!! Joanna Wylde (I hung out with her a little too, was the ONLY one – so far – that has been saying her name correctly this whole time). Figures. She rocks, too.
P.P.S. When we started talking, and she told me her name (points to herself and said “I’m Tijan”), I leaned forward and said I’m sorry, can you repeat that?
Maryse: Oh nice to meet you Teeeeejyn. *hug*
Maryse: *wait a minute…?*
Maryse: OH!!! *claps and bounces* Tijaaaaan!!!
Tijan: *smirk* *grins*
Maryse: OMG. I have been saying it wrong this whole time? GAH!!!!
