Rick Riordan in Toronto!

Rick Riordan was at the Yorkdale Indigo today!
The line was HUGE and everywhere. Really, everywhere. In and around book shelves, down stairs, around stairs...everywhere.So luckily, my cousin and I somehow got confused and cut in line much closer than we should have got but we aren`t complaining ;)

He was very quick and efficient with the signing process and although I left before it had concluded, with the way things were going, I`m certain everyone would have had the oppertunity to have their copies of The Red Pyramid and Percy Jackson books signed.

He is truly a hero of mine and it was great to meet him!
Oh, and guess who likes my book mark?

Mr. Riordan. =)

The Make Your Mark With Some Sort of Mark Contest

I am very excited to announce The Novel Emporium's very first contest!
The Make Your Mark With Some Sort of Mark Contest, to be exact(or the ever more simple,The Smudge Giveaway,for short).

The prize for this first TNE contest is rather fitting as Claudia Osmond is the first author I met in person.
And what is the prize, you ask?
A signed copy of her debut novel Smudge's Mark!

Last December,Claudia Osmond was named my favourite 2009 Debut Author and her novel is an exceptional and original story that I believe both children and adults will enjoy. For more information on the novel,check out

TBF Street Team

Guess who has just landed a spot (and unexpectedly so)on The Body Finder Street Team? I'm so excited!

The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting first caught my attention when I was compiling a list of 2010 debut novels for thestorysiren's challenge. I have been eagerly awaiting the book's release since then and I can not express how excited I am to be given the oppertunity to promote the book in my area!

The Body Finder is officially released March 16, 2010.

I posted the book trailer about a month and a half ago but for those who haven't seen it yet, click here to be redirected to The Body Finder book trailer post.
