Blogger Love Fest - Random House of Canada

A few weeks ago I received an invite to Random House of Canada's Blogger Love Fest. Although I can be a bit of a homebody, there was no way I wanted to miss this!  I was thrilled - what a great chance to finally meet Lindsey and Cassandra from Random and some other bloggers from Ontario!
What I didn't know was the amazing surprises Lindsey had lined up....


....I rode up in the elevator with -

- are you ready -

author of The Birth House and The Virgin Cure!!







And that wasn't all -

- I also got to meet
author of






author of The Paris Wife!










Each of the authors was so approachable and expressed their appreciation of book bloggers.I enjoyed meeting so many other 'faces behind the blogs' and yes, this is a rare glimpse of Luanne, out from behind her avatar! Thanks again to Lindsey and Cass for a great afternoon! (And for the swag bag!)

I was sitting near the top of the table, near the slide show. All of us Blog Squad girls were sort of sitting together.
*Fingers crossed* for future events we'll both be at.
