Photography Friday- Joy Preble TKE Signing

01 Apr, 2011 by in Heather Gardner Photography Leave a comment

Author Joy Preble made a stop near us at the King’s English bookstore in Salt Lake City and we were able to finally meet her. She is just as nice in person as she is online. I love her books because they explore the Romanov family and Russian folklore, plus they have matyroshka dolls in the storyline! We found out last night that she is working on book #3 in the Dreaming Anastasia series which is so exciting. Local YA author Sydney Salter was there as well as Catie S from BookBound. If you want another chance to see Joy in person, come to Barnes and Noble in Layton at 6:30 PM. Special thanks to Joy for her kindness and the signed bookmark being auctioned for JAPAN below. And to King’s English for always putting on wonderful events. All photos copyright Heather Zahn Gardner

Carrie Ryan SLC Utah Signing

31 Mar, 2011 by in Heather Gardner Photography Leave a comment

Last night I was able to attend the book signing for Carrie Ryan and let me tell you she is one sharp cookie! A great motivational speaker and storyteller, her third book Dark and Hollow Places was just released March 22nd by Delacorte Press. The first two in the series The Forest of Hands and Teeth and The Dead Tossed Waves speak of women’s resilience against a zombie apocalypse as well as standing up for what you believe in. The motivation for the story came from a story of her grandmother’s about wearing plum tights, some cans of tuna, her husband whom she married on April’s fools day and the desire to pass down stories from one generation to the next. Carrie shared her favorite all time reads with us which are The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien and The Devil’s Arithmetic by Jane Yolen.

Ryan advised new writers to be persistent in your attempts to get published. She had a ten year plan for success herself. Colleague Beth Revis, author of Across the Universe, an instant NY Times bestseller went through 10 manuscripts before her book was picked up. Carrie was super supportive of all the local Utah authors in the audience which included: Ally Condie, Bree Despain, Elana Johnson, Jessica Day George, James Dashner, Brodi Ashton and Dan Wells. What a crowd!! We picked up some signed goodies which are being auctioned away for Japan below. Photos by Heather Zahn Gardner.
