"Lothaire" Book Tour


I attended Kresley Cole's Book Tour for "Lothaire" (Book 12 of her Immortals After Dark series) tonight in Austin, Texas. So much fun! I enjoyed meeting up with some of my Twitter friends (some for the first time in person) - @SpazP, @LouisaEdwards, @AnaFarrish, and @CrankyAmy. It was lots of fun talking books with several of the other attendees prior to the start of the book signing.

Pamela (@SpazP), my friend Angela, Kresley Cole, and me
Kresley brought along her editor, Simon & Schuster's Executive Editor, Lauren McKenna, and the cover model for "Lothaire", Paul Marron. Kresley and Paul signed books for a nice sized crowd of fans, old and new. Kresley also answered some questions after the book signing (and pictures) about her writing process (she doesn't write sequentially but by scene), the future of the IAD series (she and her editor were taking suggestions/votes for the next IAD book - I vote for Furie!), and how her crushes make it into her books (Mike Rowe).


Paul Marron, the cover model, is as hot in person (if not hotter) as he is on the "Lothaire" cover. He was really nice and was wearing colored contacts to be in character at the book signing.


I was slightly distracted when Kresley began her Q&A (see above picture), so the first few minutes are missing in this video of the Q&A.


I highly recommend trying to make it to one of the book signings if it's in your area. There are prizes if you know your IAD (t-shirts, book bags, and a Nook were given out at our stop). The tour bus will be making a stop at:
  •  Katy Budget Books in Houston, Texas (January 12),
  • Garden District Books in New Orleans, Louisiana (January 13), and
  • Books-A-Million in Tampa, Florida (January 14).
Here is more information regarding the Tour Schedule or visit Kresley Cole's Events page on Facebook for details.

    1. Were you seated next to Pamela (sorry, I can't see your pic very well on my phone)? It was my first signing too with a cover model. The best thing about author signings though are the other readers you meet to chat about books you both love.

  9. Towards the end, after 4:30. Who is Lucy? I thought I heard Lucy; I haven't read all of the books, so I don't know if there's a Lucy in the series? I also don't know the scene that the people are talking about. Thank you :)

    1. Sorry, I just noticed I hadn't replied to this. I don't recall what scene this question(14:30)is referencing but they might be talking about Lucia the Huntress, the Valkyrie archer who feels pain when she misses a shot. Her story is in Pleasure of a Dark Prince.
