Afternoon Tea with Julie Kagawa!

A couple of weeks ago I was incredibly lucky to be invited to an afternoon tea with Julie Kagawa that was organised by Mira Ink and Midas PR to celebrate the release of the final book in her Iron Fey world, The Iron Warrior. I fell in love with Julie's writing a few years ago when I first read The Iron King and have been a fan ever since so I was really excited to get the chance to meet her.

I met up with Sophie (from So Many Books, So Little Time) and we managed to find Kettner's in no time, it's in Soho so quite central and I was able to walk there from Charing Cross which made things really easy. The restaurant is lovely and it's a fabulous place to visit if you're looking for an afternoon tea spot. You can see from the pictures how lovely (and plentiful!) the food is and we all ate more than we probably needed to but still didn't finish everything provided.

Julie was absolutely lovely and I really enjoyed chatting with her. I'm a bit behind with the Iron Fey books but I absolutely love the world and the characters so I'm sad that the series is coming to an end. We did try to find out if Julie thinks she'll ever revisit the world but at the moment it isn't something she has any plans for. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed but in the meantime we have several more books in the Talon series to look forward to (I didn't realise it's a five book series) and it sounds like Julie has plenty of other ideas that will keep her busy writing for the foreseeable future!

We had all bought a huge stacks of books with us (see pic above!) but Julie was happy to sign them all and she even did this awesome dragon drawing in my autograph book!

It was such a lovely afternoon - great company, fantastic food and the chance to meet one of my favourite authors! I'd like to say a massive thank you to Lorraine & Cara for organising everything and inviting me along and of course to Julie for taking time out of her incredibly busy tour schedule to come and chat with us all :o)
