Book signing with Harlan Coben

Last night I had the opportunity to go to a book signing (my first EVER!!) for Harlan Coben at my favorite indie book store, Chester County Book Company. Lisa Scottoline was also there as an interviewer. She happens to be a huge fan and friend of Harlan Coben’s, and it definitely showed during the author discussion.


Now I know this was my first book signing but the interactions between the authors was fantastic. I’ve never laughed so hard listening to someone describe the inspirations for their novels. Both authors were HILARIOUS! They joked. They shared stories.  They talked like friends sitting in someone’s backyard. Lisa and Harlan seemed to genuinely enjoy spending time with their readers. Their love for what they do, no matter how hard, was obvious.


When it came to the actual book signing Harlan was so nice. He made small talk with each attendant and even made jokes with me about how I brought my mom along! (THANKS MOM!) I will always remember this not just because it was my first book signing, but also because of the amazing personalities of both Lisa Scottoline and Harlan Coben. I can’t wait for me next book signing! I am definitely going to keep my eyes open for the next Coben/Scottoline signing for sure.

The exact moment that Harlan Coben realized I brought my Mom with me 🙂


I laughed the ENTIRE time I talked with him.
A great author, hilarious speaker, and an all-around fantastic person!
