ABC Event with Amie Rose Rotruck

ABC Event with Amie Rose Rotruck

As the holiday season is fading into a beautiful memory, I wanted to take some time to reflect on some of the amazing authors that have hosted ABC events this year.  One of the highlights for me was Amie Rose Rotruck!  On October 19th, at the Mount Airy public Library, Amie kicked off the holiday fun by showing us all how to handle monsters! (Halloween is my personal favorite)

We started off by discussing ways to track and trap a variety of monsters.

And then, we joined Amie as she discussed her book, Young Wizards Handbook: How to Trap a Zombie, Track a Vampire, and Other Hands-On Activities for Monster Hunters

We even got to put our new found monster hunting knowledge to good use and actually handcrafted monster nets!

It was interesting to see how each monster net turned out.  (I’ll just say that neither of these beautifully precise nets was mine)

Amie  also talked about the craft of writing, specifically “How I Got Paid to Write Fanfic” and “Writing a Book for the Child You Were (or Still Are).”

Afterwards,  Amie talked about her own writing and the stories behind several of her wonderful books including Bronze Dragon Codex.

Then we broke for a snack break and book signing session.

Thank you, Amie!

    Awesome, thanks for the recap, Larissa! Amie’s ABC was so much fun, except for this one OCD woman who just had to have her monster net perfectly spaced.

    (Oh, wait . . . that was me. ;))

    But thanks again, Larissa, Amie, and Naomi for putting together another wonderful event! And Amie’s daughter? Oh my gosh. So adorable!!
