Michael Grant Event
Yesterday I was at the Messenger of Fear event by Michael Grant. This was a two hour event where Michael Grant talked about his new upcoming book and of course there was a Q&A. This was amazing!! Literally, Mr Grant did an excellent speech. He started out by showing the trailer and well lets just say the electronics weren't behaving themselves, which was quite funny, but worked out perfect in the end.
**Trailer Discussion** - Wow!! I never really watch book trailers well cause honestly, they aren't the best really, but the trailer for Messenger of Fear was amazing. I was completely intrigued and it left me wanting to read the book even more!! It was, I have to say, the best book trailer I've seen so far.
**Messenger of Fear** - Every word that Michael Grant was saying about the book had me just wanting to pick it up there and then. He had me intrigued, chilled, excited, scared all at once. I just really need to read the book and you all really need to read it too.
Q&A really answered some questions that I really wanted to know about Michael Grant, like how he got into writing, he's writing techniques, he's inspirations and much more. I loved how he isn't a planner and that he makes up the story as he goes along because I agree completely with that way of writing. It's the way I do it too.
After the Q&A it was signing time!! Me being me I brought all the books I had of Michael Grants. There they are below, all 7 of them.
Of course I didn't know if he would have the time to sign them all but I was said what the heck and I asked and he said of course, he'd sign all the books I had, so I did a happy dance and started handing them out with the help of my dad, who so kindly drove me over 150 kilometres to get to the event and for mam who let me go on her birthday. Anyway I got all my books signed!!!!! Here's some of what he wrote on them.
