Dark Days Tour: Austin, TX

This past Friday night, I had the AWESOME opportunity to go to the Dark Days tour stop in Austin, TX (where, in case you didn't already know, I hail from) to see Courtney Allison Moulton, author of the Angelfire series, Cynthia Hand, author of the Unearthly series, Brodi Ashton, author of Everneath and Jodi Meadows, author of Incarnate. They read excerpts from their books, did a Q&A, asked trivia questions for some awesome prizes (see below), and signed books afterwards. Here are the few salvageable pictures from my uncooperative camera:

Courtney Allison Moulton reading from Wings of the Wicked.
Cynthia Hand reading from Hallowed.
Brodi Ashton reading from Everneath.
Jodi Meadows and Incarnate!
Many of pictures were blurry thanks to Barnes and Noble's mood lighting,
but this was just cute...

Now I get to tell you the FUN part: Trivia time!
Cynthia whipped out these awesome Team Tucker cowboy hats and asked two questions.
What was the name of is truck? Bluebell.
What was the name of his horse? Midas.
Jennifer fail on both of these.

Then she pulled out Team Christian beanies.
Who does Christian live with? I knew it was some kind of not-immediate male family member. I ventured with grandfather. She said that wasn’t it and I shot back with uncle, which is it.

Then it was Jodi Meadows’ turn. And she only had ONE thing, so the pressure was ON.
The question: What is Ana’s favorite sound?
Audience silence.
Since I’d already won something else, I felt greedy about answering, but no one else did so I ventured with “Dossam’s music”. She said “more specific”. Then I said Phoenix … then I struggled with the rest of it. Sonata? Cantata? Frittata?? I couldn’t remember exactly, even though I’d read it the day before! I finally landed on symphony, which is right.

The Spoils of Trivia
