We had such a fun time tonight at the Dangerous Creatures book signing! 

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl are awesome. They had everyone laughing the entire time. They were humble about their success and it was fun to hear them share their experiences with writing the book, being on the set of the Beautiful Creatures movie, their advice to aspiring writers, and just their hilarious comments in general.

Some highlights:
"If you need your donkeys [as apposed to asses] kicked, then these ladies can do it!" Shannon Hale said of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. 
"The difference between a writer and not-writer is about 30 seconds," Margaret Stohl said, referring to the importance of writers having notebooks with them and writing down their ideas right when they have them. 

They brought the band Dom Liberati with them, and they rocked out the signing, which added an exciting concert atmosphere to the whole event.

These two really know how to draw a crowd.
