A Maggie, a sharpie & a whole lot of Lingers

I spent my morning unpacking books. I know that might sound boring, but trust me when I say it wasn't. It's all in the company, right? And I had great company.

I was unpacking, turning, and stacking books Fountain Bookstore with owner Kelly Justice so that NYT bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater could sign them. (Yes, she makes me call her that. She likes to say "NYT bestseller, I win.")There were so many copies of Linger that, seriously, we could have built the most amazing fort. See off to your right there?

But we didn't build Fort Linger. We did the responsible thing and created a meticulous system of moving books so that Maggie could sign and doodle each and ever one for the adoring fans that ordered them. Of course, there were other books to be signed as well.

Shivers, Laments and Ballads, oh my!

With as many books as she signed and doodled in, I'm surprised she doesn't have an advanced case of carpal tunnel. Take a look at these mad doodling skillz...

If you haven't ordered your copy of Linger or you just want signed Maggie books, never fear! Fountain Bookstore has boxes full of them, and you can snag one HERE.


  1. I am glad I ordered one from them now :) I have one with doodlez :D

    Kinda makes me feel better about having to miss her party.

  2. Wow. I love her doodle! I can't wait to read my copy...a weekend adventure awaits!

  3. Sounds like a fun day!!! way cool to see Maggie doodle "live" thanks for the post!!!

  4. Maggie is so amazing! Lucky you that you got to hang out with her :) Thanks for sharing the video!

  5. Drove to Fountain Bookstore from Va Beach just to get 2 of those signed & doodled in Lingers...one for me, and 1 for oldest daughter's 21st b-day gift. :)
