Thrifty Little Activity-- Book Signing

>> 10.12.2009

I love a good book signing! This weekend, I had the chance to go see the hilarious authors of Cake Wrecks as they were on tour promoting their new blog-based book about professional cakes gone wrong. There was free cake, a contest for best cupcake wreck-replica, and a Q&A with some behind-the-blog stories.

Some of my favorite contest entries:

The winner! Check out what the original should have looked like here.

While most signings don’t include miniaturized versions of cakes gone wrong, the Q&A sessions or readings are usually free to attend and great ways to spend a weekend afternoon or evening. As a bonus, you have the chance to add a little value to your copy of the author’s book by getting it signed. Books are some of the most affordable gifts out there, so giving a signed copy would be a great time expensive addition.

One of my favorite (and free) book events, Texas Book Festival , is just a couple of weeks away… yep, a weekend of free author talks and signings (jealous?). I’m sure I’ll start crossing a few people off of my holiday list then!

Do you ever go to book signings? Which authors have you met?

I'm so jealous you got to go to the tour! They aren't stopping anywhere near me, and I really wanted to make a mini-wreck :(
I;ll just live vicariously through you :)
