Author Gena Showalter


Tonight I had the honor of meeting a very sweet & talented author, Gena Showalter.

I hadn't read her books yet, but I met her once before & had intentions of buying her novels. I mentioned to my sister she was in town, and she told me that she'd read probably all of her books and they were very good. So a writer friend and I went and chatted with Gena for a long while. I bought one of her Undeworld books, I believe the first one in that series and started reading it a few hours ago. Let me just say, I didn't want to put it down. She captures you in the first sentence. Here is what it she writes, "Every night death came, slowly, painfully, and every morning Maddox awoke in bed, knowing he'd have to die again later." How cool is that sentence...


What a hook! I had to keep going.....Anyway many pages later, and I'm still reading. I just wanted to stop for a moment and add a picture of her and I at the signing....I wish other authors would come to New Orleans. Thank you Gina for stopping by....Good luck on your tour...

Wohoo! It was a blast! I loved meeting Gena. I have read her Lords of the Underworld series and bought the Atlantis series while there (hadn't started it yet). I also had to buy books and get them autographed for firends who live out of state. Thanks Gena, you're awesometastic!
Dawn, call me about lunch.
