Robyn Schneider, Katie Cotugno, me and Melissa Kantor respectively (In a nutshell, a panel of awesome people)
This photo is perfection. Special thanks to the person who took this photo. I love ‘ya! Oddly to say that Robyn Schneider is the only reason I came to this event. I love the Beginning of Everything! To bits! Nevertheless, I also bought Katie Cotugno’s and Melissa Kantor’s books because I don’t want to waste a minute going to an event and missing a good opportunity.
To explain to you these three authors in a nutshell. My observations for these authors are: Melissa Kantor is very nice, Katie Cotugno is very funny, and Robyn Schneider is very pretty. *laughs at myself* (This is my opinion after all, don’t hate me!)
I’m still thinking why Katie Cotugno’s signature is just “K” with an “XOXO” at the beginning. I’m forever judging people’s signature. Don’t judge me for judging other people. I only judge people’s signature and other things that you don’t have to know. LOL!
Meeting them was such a dream come true. Their answers to every questions were brilliant and really inspiring. I hope to meet them again soon someday in the near distant future.
PS: Katie Cotugno has a new book that contains pop bands like N’Sync and the like. (No title yet, unfortunately)
And lastly, I want to thank National Book Store for this amazing event. It was truly memorable and a dream come true.
