I have to admit that I'm new to Laini Taylor. A lot of the blogs I read have been raving about The Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I had a chance to snag a copy at the trade show (and then do the happy dance). I've only just had a chance to start reading the book (and am loving it! I wish I could tap into the kind of creativity Laini Taylor has!). Stay tuned for a review on that one later.
The event was great. Taylor talked about her process, traveling (and inspiration), and mentioned a series of essays she wrote about the writing craft, which can be found here: http://notforrobots.blogspot.com/
And in addition to getting my copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone signed, I also picked up a copy of her National Book Award nominated title, Lips Touch: Three Times, three novellas illustrated by Taylor's husband.
