Calamity Jack Launch Party (aka Shannon Stalking take two)

My stalkerish tendencies towards Shannon Hale should come as no surprise to anyone.  I've fully admitted that I think we should be BFF's (see this post for further details) but sadly she hasn't called to see if I want to go shopping and talk about boys. *tear* I guess I will have to continue to just read her books and go to her book signings.   

On Saturday I convinced a few friends to join in my Shannon stalking and attend the book launch party for her newest publication- Calamity Jack.  It's a graphic novel and is the sequel to Rapunzel's Revenge.  I'm not a big fan of the graphic novel genre but I enjoyed Rapunzel's Revenge so I knew I had to get a copy of Calamity Jack. 

We were entertained in true Shannon Hale fashion. She was joined by her co-author Dean (her hubby) and the illustrator Nathan Hale (no relation) so the laughs were pretty much non-stop. 

This picture gives you a pretty good indication of how the afternoon went-

It was a fabulous afternoon and Shannon was wonderful! She actually remembered me from The Actor & The Housewife signing (and not because of the restraining order) and said some really sweet things that made my inner fan girl squeal.

You can read my write up of the afternoon, which includes some great video, here and enter to win an autographed copy of the books and poster here.

Here are some random pictures that were taken while we were waiting for the line to not be so long-

Me, Rae & Christy being fabulous (as usual!)

My love ♥
