One fan, the first in the queue, presented Lauren with a Fallen board game that she had made herself! Both Lauren and her publicist were thrilled with it. I have to say, I think they should be making these, it's so cool!!
Everyone we spoke to in the queue were so excited to be there to meet Lauren Kate. I asked Katie Wilkinson, aged 14, to describe Laurens books in three words. She answered Unique, inspirational and mysterious.
Chloe Wallaker said she was inspiring, friendly and open (:
Another girl in the queue was there to say thank you to Lauren for inspiring her to become an author too, and there were even a few 18th birthday celebrations to boot!
I think it's safe to say that everyone had a good time. There was even some music to boogie to, from a fashion show that was happening a few shops over!

Lauren very kindly signed some extra stock for us after the event yesterday. So if you couldn't make it yesterday, but would like a signed copy of Rapture, then pop into our Bluewater store and keep an eye out for copies with a 'signed by the author' sticker on them.
Lauren, you are welcome back anytime! In fact you would fit in really well on our kids department as they are all blue-eyed, brown-haired, left-handed vegetarians too!!
OK It's competition time!!
All you have to do to win a signed Lauren Kate poster, (which is huge btw!!) is tell us why you love Lauren Kate's books. Either follow this blog and leave a comment here. Or follow us on twitter (@yabluewater ) and tweet us your answer. Simples!!
You have until midnight on Wednesday to get your answers to us. The winner will be announced on Thursday, so make sure you check back then.
See you next post!
