Book Buzz was an event started in NYC, but Kaley and a few authors decided to bring it north of the border. The event is a mix and mingle with authors of women's fiction, books for sale and the opportunity to get them signed. Each of the authors had at least one of their books for sale, for $10 each, so it was a great opportunity to pick up some Christmas presents (I know Kaley did).
|Look at all the books!|
The event took place at a bar in Toronto called The Crest and had a great turnout. There were the authors, of course, as well as bloggers and other people in the industry, and just general book lovers. There were quite a few men there as well!
There were hors d'oeuvres passed around, I didn't have any (picky eater) but they seemed to be getting grabbed off the trays. Their was also a free signature drink offered, we got a ticket as soon as we got in the door. The Pink Stiletto's were pink lemonade and vodka, rimmed with pink sugar and had a raspberry garnish. I drank half (not a big drinker either), licked the sugar off and gave the rest to Kaley :) haha.
Being the only non author, Kaley got the job of introducing all the lovely ladies involved in the event. Even though I know she was super nervous, she did a fabulous job. Must have been all those pink stilettos :P haha.

It was great to see my sister, and I'm so proud of her for putting this event together. She was so excited to be a part of this and to meet all these great and talented women who write the books she loves.
Hopefully they can do it again next year, and I can be the photographer again. If you're interested in hearing more about the event, most of the authors have blog posts up, including Kaley.
