Kendare Blake - Book Signing

Saturday I attended Kendare Blake's (author, of Anna Dressed In Blood) book signing. For those who don't know, Kendare grew up in Cambridge, Minnesota. She came home for a special post-launch party. I'm just a few towns over from Cambridge, so I was excited to be able to attend.  The signing was hosted by local bookstore Scout & Morgan Books.  This was only my second signing, but by far my favorite. I loved the atmosphere it was quite cozy. Below are pictures from the reading & questions afterwards.

Reading Chapter One

These pics are all from the Q&A Kendare did after the reading. She answered all sorts of questions about query letters, how long it took to get with a publisher, favorite authors and even questions from her family and childhood friends. Also touched upon was the cover art and the title of book two, which will be called Girl of Nightmares. (2012)


I took the pictures with my cell phone, so sorry for the blurry spots. Click on the graphics to enlarge. You can't see real good in the pictures but cake was served, which was pretty cool. It was the white house from the cover along with the title in dark red icing.  A few of us girls were offered books from Kendare. (Thank you!) I picked out Luminous by Dawn Metcalf.  All in all I had a wonderful time.

Signed books. I picked up one for myself and a second signed copy. Check back in October for my Halloween giveaway for a chance to win it.

Kendare's signing was hosted by Scout & Morgan Books (website). Although I don't know how many, the store has stock of signed copies of Anna Dressed In Blood available.  If you interested in getting your own signed copy, here is the information you'll need.

  1. Thanks for sharing! Would love to attend a book signing...maybe someday :)

  2. Anna,

    Great pics. I'm glad you had a good time. :)


  3. Ooh, looks like fun! I just picked up my own copy of Anna Dressed in Blood and can't wait to read it. Yay for hearing that there's going to be a sequel!


  4. Rain Maiden,

    We don't get many signings here, so this was rare and fun.

    Thanks Michelle. :)

    I'm looking forward to start Anna as well. But I have one review book to finish and then it's next on my list. Yeah its sounds like there will be just the two books. I thought it was a trilogy, but I guess not.

  5. Looks like fun times were had. My friend Amanda (On A Book Bender) attended the signing too. I heard there was cake. Mmmmm!

  6. Yes there was cake. It was quite yummy. :)
