Michelle Zink: PROPHECY Book Tour

I had the privilege tonight of hooking up with Michelle before the signing and chatting a little bit. Unfortunately, it took me a little longer to get there than I anticipated, so our chatting time was cut short. Let me just tell you guys that Michelle is the sweetest, most awesomest author! While at her hotel (Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale) we had drinks and appetizers and a really great time. Thanks for taking the time out of your tour to meet with me in person, Michelle!

When I arrived at the book signing at Changing Hands in Tempe, I was the first one there. I was honestly a little nervous for Michelle because when 7pm rolled around, there were all of 3 of us in the audience, but before Michelle was done talking, the audience had blown up, and people were squeezing in where they could. Michelle's presentation took about 25 minutes. She focused a little on her journey to writing Prophecy, and her journey to get to a place in her life where she could be what she was meant to be instead of what she perceived as was responsible for her to be. The theme of predetermination vs. free will came up in her discussion as well as a little bit of the mythology that inspired her trilogy. I recorded the audio of the signing, but the quality isn't great. If you want to suffer through it though, be my guest. I tweaked it to the best of my ability, but Blackberry can only do so much ya know. (If you are an wiz at tweaking audio and want to give me a tutorial, I'd love you!!)

Tempe was the first stop on her tour, so if she's coming to your city, make sure that you go meet Michelle and pick up a copy of PROPHECY while you're there if you don't already have one.

I was able to get my copy signed, the copy I'm giving my sister-in-law for her birthday signed (and I don't think she reads IHM, so we'll keep our fingers crossed that she at least misses this post) and a copy signed to do a really fun giveaway for you guys...

So... if you want to be entered to win my extra signed copy of PROPHECY, you need to make a prophecy of your own in the comments section. It can be about anything you want it to be. Reach deep into your unused portions of gray matter and get in tune with that psychic ability we all know is in there somewhere and make us a prediction! Make sure you leave your email address. Contest closes October 10th and is open WORLDWIDE.
