Meeting Authors: Kim Harrison (and contest)

On Saturday my friend and I went down to the Virginia Festival of the Book. We left at 4 am and finally got home at 10 pm. It was a looooong day. I actually decided to go when I found out Kim Harrison was having a book signing at the Charlottesville, B&N. She's been one of my favorite authors for years. She was promoting her most recent release, BLACK MAGIC SANCTION, which is book 8 in The Hollows series. I told her my favorite was A FISTFUL OF CHARMS, and she said that was her favorite, too. Until... book 9. And we have about 11 more months until that.


Kim was very sweet. She didn't speak before the signing, but she signed my entire series (8 books), two anthos, two for friends, and one for a giveaway. To be specific... this giveaway. In addition to the first book in the series, DEAD WITCH WALKING, the winner will get some Kim Harrison swag!!! To enter, you must answer the question in a a reply. In this series, the three main characters are a witch, a living vampire, and a 4-inch-tall pixy. If you could pick one of those species to be, which one would you pick.

I'd be the 4 inch Pixy. It sounds like the most fun.

I would so want to be a witch! I don't want to be short and having to live off blood? No thanks! :)

I would go with witch. I don't like the
idea of being squished at 4 inches tall,
and no bloodsucking for me thanks.
