Richelle Mead is the author of, among other things, Vampire Academy, which was recently made into a movie. She’s also a friendly and accessible author and did a reading at the Barnes & Noble bookstore last Saturday to promote her more recent series, Bloodlines and Age of X.
This was less eventful than a previous time I saw her, which I made into a mythical journey. Richelle had a more cozy turnout this time (about twenty-five people, instead of a huge mob), so she was able to take the time to speak to each one of us—I asked her questions about incorporation—and for photos.
So if you hear of Richelle Mead doing a reading near you, make the effort to turn out and get the opportunity to ask her questions about her books or writing in general.
