Sunday Confessions meme


Marcie from To Read or Not to Read hosts this weekly meme with fun ways for us to get to know one another. 

Today’s question is:

Have you ever been to a book signing?

I live in South Africa, so no, I have not met any international authors or even South African authors for that matter.  I have never had the opportunity and I imagine that I won’t in the near future.

I would love to be able to be in the audience of one of my favourite authors though – Nalini Singh, Shelly Laurenston or Sam Cheever – but I would be too nervous to talk to them.  I am one of those people that like to blend into the masses.  :) But I would love to hear them speak about how they got the ideas for some of my favourite books.


  1. I live in a small town. There aren't many authors that come near to where I live either. I think I would be intimidated also. It would also be thrilling to meet the person behind the book. Thanks for participating in Sunday Confessions. Have a great week.

  2. Hey Chrizette

    You'd actually be surprised at how many signings we do here in South Africa. I was fortunate enough to attend the book fair last year and met and interviewed Jodi Picoult - who was incredibly awesome.

    In fact, we've got a couple of fab authors coming to our shores soon, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled around September in case you'd like to come. :) Also, there's the Franschoek Literary festival that's happening from teh 13 -15 May if you want to check that out as well. Think there will be an international author or two. Am definitely going to go and check it out - although I di get that it can be quite intimidating when in such an environment.

  3. Completely agree to what you said! It's a pleasure meeting the authors of your favorite books.


Thank you for saying hello.
