Houston recap!

OMG! You cannot believe how much fun I had going to Houston and meeting so many awesome people!




Check out the pics....

Declaration of Jennifer L Armentrout day!

Cute boy hanging out during the declaration!

Cute boy watching JLA be cool!

Jennifer eating the mic!

Have I told you that Pepe has the BEST laugh!

OKAY, I know! It's a total fail that I didn't get pics of me with Heather!!! But I do have one of me with Jennifer and Pepe!!

I will admit that my phone died BUT don't hate the iPhone because the reason it died was because of all the video that I took during the Q&A! AND I'm sharing it with you! You're welcome!

Yes that is almost 20 minutes of staring at PEPE!!!
I got to go to the after party and when the cameras are put away and the crowd is a little smaller, Pepe relaxes a bit and I heard him laugh a couple of times.  What a great laugh.  Wish I had that on video.
Anyway, I had the best time.  So much fun.  It was totally worth the 2 1/2 hour delay of my plane because of the crazy rain in Houston Sunday morning and the tired 2 year old that I sat next to on the plane.  I would do it all again just to be there.
AND I brought home books!
I have two giveaways going on right now for OPAL.  One is INT for a signed copy here.  One is US/CA for a copy that's not signed here.
My other signed copy that I'm giving away will be one of the prizes in the JLA Readathon on December 28th, 29th & 30th!  If you haven't signed up to participate, I'm thinking you might want to!  Brought home some swag too!  That's for the readathon as well.  Sign-up here.

The twitter party will be open to ANYONE and will be December 28th 7:00PM EST.  No sign-up required.


  1. Oh I am so jealous of you. God I hate that I stay so far away.
    Thanks for the video and giveaways!! :D

  2. Thank you so much for the video!! Makes me so much more jealous now :D

  3. Awesome post chick!! Loved the video!! JLA is so funny. I'm glad that you got to meet her and so jealous you met Pepe!!!

  4. Val!! I am so, so happy that YOU got to go. You have been JLA's biggest supporter and fan. I'm happy SHE got to meet YOU.

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. It is okay to admit that I kind of hate you just a teeny tiny little bit ;)
    I'm so happy for you (and jealous) that you got to meet JLA and Pepe!!!
    I ordered a signed book from them and I am anxiously waiting for it to get here :)

  6. Thank so much for uploading your video, Valerie! I really enjoyed getting to see it, and Jennifer's answers. And getting to stare at Pepe didn't hurt. ;)

  7. YAY!! I can't believe we didn't get a pick together! I'm SOOOOOO glad you got to come and meet them (and me) but mostly them! Let's do it again sometime!

  8. 20 minutes of staring at Pepe? Sounds like time well spent to me. Wow, it would be so amazing to actually meet JLA. I can't seem to get these jealous panties off. Sigh...

  9. Glad you had fun! Jennifer and Pepe are the sweetest. Jealous you got to hang with Heather too. Miss her. :(

  10. Ok, I feel stupid.....But, who is Pepe? He's gorgeous.. But, who is he?

    1. He's the model on the cover's of the Lux series books and he's come to represent Daemon from the books! Totally gorgeous guy that these pics do not do justice to at all.

  11. Sounds like you had a great and awesome time! I'm so jealous! And Pepe is sooo gorgeous! I'm also glad you got to met them! Maybe one day I can met JLA, and if wishes come true, Pepe too! haha
    I loved this post, that video and those pictures Val!

    Looks like you had a time you will never forget!
