Tara Hudson's Hereafter Book Signing!!

Tara Hudson's debut book, Hereafter, is featured as one of HarperTeen's "Dark Days of Supernatural" summer read books. Tara has recently begun signing across the U.S. and this past Saturday, June 11, I had the privilege of going to one of her signings at Full Circle Bookstore in Oklahoma City, OK.

Tara began her signing with a wonderful speech about how her book came to fruition and why she chose to set the location in Oklahoma. Most notably, she focused on how when she completed her manuscript, it was time for agent queries. The hard part. She made a list of 80 agents she had heard positive things about in a spreadsheet and began to contact them, starting from the bottom up. After over thirty rejections, her husband suggested she take a chance on herself and contact her top 5 agents. His belief in her paid off and her #3 agent chose her and she ended up with a 3 book deal with HarperCollins!

After the speech and question/answer portion, Tara signed our books, took pictures, and gave out "Haunted Love" bracelets. It was a fabulous event and Tara Hudson was very, very sweet. It was a wonderful afternoon and I can't wait to dive into Hereafter and possibly even catch up with Tara at a future signing!

And yes, the lovely Tara even inscribed my book Happy Birthday since I went to the signing over my birthday weekend :)
