Tonight I met Bonnie from Redlady’s Reading Room for the first time. We only live about 20 minutes from each other and we decided to get together and meet Beth Hoffman, author of Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt. Bonnie is a fellow Ohio State grad and we had a lot of fun chatting before we headed to the library for the book discussion and signing. I have exchanged a few emails with Beth and knew that she was sweet. However, I think she was even sweeter in person! She was full of charm and warmth and if you have the chance to meet her on her book tour, take the opportunity! (tour locales here) She was truly inspirational.
I should note that before her discussion she talked to Bonnie and when Bonnie introduced me, Beth said, “Oh, Stacy, Max’s Mom!” Well, let’s be honest, I was floored that she remembered to mention him. How cool is that?!
Okay, a couple of photos…

Bonnie, Beth, and me.
We also got to meet a few new-to-us local bloggers and writers. Christina from Write-Brained and Lisa and Laura from Lisa and Laura Write. Why not check them out?
Tomorrow I’ll post my interview with Beth, so come back for that.
Okay, now for your chance to win a brand new copy of Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt. Leave a comment with your email address and you’ll be entered to win. You have a chance to earn extra entries by participating in my Tuesday quizzes. Open internationally and I’ll draw a winner on February 1st.
