I’m writing this post fresh from the fantabulous book signing event today which is #SarahJMaasinPH! Oh my goodness, I’m still on cloud nine from all the fangirling and happy, exciting things that happened earlier at the Q&A that I attended with my blogger friends! ❤ Sarah J. Maas is hands down super amazing. Her beauty inside and out shines bright like a diamond! Everybody squealed in delight upon seeing Sarah enter the Q&A venue!
Here are some fascinating bits I got from the Q&A:
*With every book, Sarah learns something new about herself, not only as a writer but also as a person. She also gets to know her characters well.
*Sarah sets deadlines for herself and wants to keep pushing herself.
*She’s working on the 5th Throne of Glass book, Empire of Storms.
*She loves fairy tales and folklore.
*She wants to write a retelling of the Russian folklore, “Vasilisa the Beautiful”.
*According to Sarah, she is a hybrid of pantser and plotter.
*She wants to know how to start and how she’ll end a story.
*She lets her characters speak to her.
*Her husband is her first and last boyfriend. (Awwww! <3)
*The Night Court in the ACOTAR series is a place with layers of secrets.
*A Court of Mist and Fury is a book where readers will see more of the world of Prythian!
*Sarah likes to think that there’s strength in quietness.
*Sarah wants to write strong female characters that represent different kinds of strength.
*She listens to music on repeat until she gets in her characters’ mindsets.
*Sarah has to feel what her characters are feeling.
*She opened herself up in ways she’s never done before in Heir of Fire.
*She calls Heir of Fire the “migraine book” because she cried a lot while writing it.
*It’s amazing to her that the fandom (for her books) has grown.

After the Q&A, my blogger friends and I had lunch at our usual hang-out. Our topic of conversation was of course, BOOKS. 🙂 After lunch, I dropped by the public signing at National Book Store Glorietta 1 with Sab of Sab The Book Eater and Dani of Book Whales. I felt the excitement of everyone upon entering the venue! There were a lot of bookworms who camped out as early as yesterday! WOW. You guys are awesome! I salute every single one of you. 🙂
So there you have it! Another phenomenal book signing event made possible by the one and only National Book Store! Thank you very much NBS for bringing Sarah J. Maas here in the Philippines! You guys rock! 🙂
