Jen Calonita's WINTER WHITE (Belles #2) Signing!

I had the wonderful opportunity to go to Jen Calonita's WINTER WHITE signing at the Barnes and Noble in Carle Place, NY. My sister came along with me, well, she drove, so I actually went with her, lol!
Jen is one of the sweetest people I have ever met! She is so down-to-earth and caring. We even got to briefly some of her family members and close friends. It was so wonderful to see such a close-knit community.

Here are some pics from the signing... 

These were cupcakes iced as a sheet of cake! Isn't it gorgeous?!
I love how they were able to put the cover to Winter White on it! SO delish!

Introducing... Jen Calonita!!!

Jen telling us about Winter White...

Here's a video of what she had to say and she also read her favorite excerpt to us :)

 (so sorry, it got cut off at the end!)

Jen revealing THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER's cover!!!

Jen is hosting a WINTER WHITE COTILLION, just like in the book, at her local library!
The cotillion was scheduled for tonight (Wednesday, 11/7th) but unfortunately, due to Sandy's havoc, it has been rescheduled for next Wednesday. I am looking forward to dressing up and getting a few etiquette pointers and dance lessons ;)

Here is my sister, Sarabeth (of Chroncles of Sarita) getting her book signed!

My turn! See me fan-girling it up!

Here are Jen's other books/series!
Sleepaways Girls is getting a spin-off!!!
The characters have grown-up a bit, and now they're the camp counselors and new characters are being introduced! Sounds like a super cute sequel!

And did you see?! BELLES is now available in paperback!!!

My sister and I had such a great time at the signing!
And also a much needed girls/sisters night out :)

A huge thank you to Jen!
Can't wait to see you at the cotillion!!!

And a big thank you to my little sis for hanging out with her ol' sister :)

By the way!!!
You can read my review of BELLES here!!!
my review of WINTER WHITE here!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, 
happy reading :)


  1. You look so excited! And that cupcake cake is awesome. You definitely need to post pics of the dance too!!!

  2. This is such a fun post -- love all the photos!

  3. Such a fun event! I love that Jen is hosting her own cotillion classes. It makes me laugh a lot.

    THIS SERIES is a killer. Loved the first, didn't like the second as much and I really did not like the cliffhanger. Here's hoping it all makes for a fab book 3.

    Thanks for sharing this! If I still lived in LI, I could have been there!! I love this B&N!

  4. So cool! I have Belles from the library right now, and I need to read it in the next few days. It's so great that you have a sister who's a reader too and that you have someone to go with. Looks like a lot of fun, love the pics! :-)

  5. Wow, very cool! We don't get many authors coming to my city, so I always love reading other blogger's post about signings.
