Janet Evanovich Event

As promised, I'm posting a few shots from the Janet Evanovich signing this past Wednesday, which was held at a Chapters store on the Queensway in Toronto. I'm a big believer in first impressions, and you just know that an event will be fun when you are greeted near the door by a person in a chicken suit...

About 375 fans lined up to meet the author and get their copies of Finger Lickin' Fifteen signed. While they waited everyone was kept entertained by a DJ spinning catchy tunes, free balloons (featuring favorite characters from the series), and was kept fortified by some absolutely incredible mini cheesecakes! For those who asked where we got them, they are made by a bakery in Bolton called Mercato Fine Foods Bakery and Deli.

Because I know that there are a lot of Janet Evanovich fans out there, I did make a point of getting an extra copy of Finger Lickin' Fifteen autographed for one lucky blog reader! If you are a librarian (Canada only) and would like the chance to win a signed book , please send me an e-mail with Finger Lickin' Fifteen in the subject line. Please make sure to include your full name and the mailing address of your library. I'll collect entries until 9:20 a.m. EST Monday July 13th. It's a strange cut off time I know, but for some reason 9:20 seems to be the earliest I can make it to the office on a Monday morning! Good Luck!

If you are a fan of the series, you might also want to check out the new animated Burg website that the publisher of the series has created. It features an interactive map where you can visit various locales from Stephanie Plum's neighborhood- her apartment, the bond office, her parent's house- and learn more about Stephanie's life and friends.
NB: This contest is now closed. Thanks to those who entered & congratulations to the winner!
