Four Brits Book Fest took place on 11 June 2016 at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham, UK.
This was my first time attending a book signing as a reader, so I was a little nervous and excited about meeting some of my favourite authors who, up until this event, I'd only corresponded with via social media.
Armed with my bag of books and spare sharpies, I joined the queue of readers eager to get inside and get things started. Having an Early Bird ticket was a good thing as I got to go inside an hour before general admission and boy did I need it.
Once the doors opened, hundreds of readers flooded the King Suite of the hotel. The atmosphere was electric as people connected with old friends and got to meet the people who had taken over their bookshelves and kindles.
Many new friendships were made that weekend and my first event as a reader was a great success.
Until the next time :)
