Last night I attended the launch party for Brodi Ashton's EVERNEATH. It was an amazing event, with hundreds (no, literally hundreds) of people crowding into the King's English bookstore. I read the book back in October and loved it. It's one of Harper Collins' big releases for 2012, so if you haven't already heard of it, you will soon! I got to hang out with tons of awesome writer-people, including several of my critique partners. The Utah writing scene really is wonderful.
Brodi's a local author and her presentation was hilarious. She received hundreds of rejections before signing with an agent, and EVERNEATH went on to sell within 48 hours after going out on submission. Truly an inspiring story. I have here a hardcover copy of EVERNEATH, signed by Brodi herself. You can read my review and a plot summary here.
