Meeting Jackson Pearce

Meeting Jackson tonight was totally awesome! I was stoked to finally meet her after watching her live web shows, reading her books, and talking to her on Twitter. We drove down to the Barnes & Noble in Alpharetta, GA for the signing. We arrived around 6:30 and went in and awaited for her to come out. Her sister, Katie came out first sporting an awesome red cape then a few minutes later Jackson came out to her wonderful fans. If you look at the 2nd picture (upper left) you can see the way that B&N had set up for the meet/greet and looking at the 3rd pic you can see that Jackson totally rejected that and just sat on top of the table :D From the moment she sat down she began telling the story of Sisters Red and also gave her bio. She kept us laughing by placing a picture of "that baby" drinking a margarita in order to calm down and telling many more funny stories. She then transitioned into the Q/A by giving away the UK version of SR to the person who asked the 1st question. My bestie, Travis P, was the first and won! The book is super amazing and shiny! After everything, it was finally time for the signing! We waited our turn before getting to talk to Jackson but it was well worth it! In the pictures above are myself and my twin brother, Jeffrey with Jackson. She also gave us SR fortune cookies (because I asked...) We said our big thanks to her before saying goodbye. "See you in September!" Overall, it was a spectacular night and I had a lot of fun! Jackson, you are the best! I can't wait to come back down and have lunch some time! If you guys ever get a chance to meet her, please go! No matter how far you have to drive (We drove 2 hours!). Thanks for an awesome night, Jackson!
