This week I want to spotlight a gem in my collection as the first in a series of Fangirl Friday posts where I showcase some of my most treasured possessions: signed books and ARCs. Haven’t decided if I will stick to alphabetical by author or just whatever catches my fancy for sharing.
First up: we have the Lost Continent series by Catherine Asaro.
Fell in love with the cover of The Charmed Sphere shortly after its release and saved up my money to buy this $14 book (it was a lot to a young person back then). I was really sad when they didn’t get the same artist, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, to do the cover of book five, but I was happy the series got a book five when others by LUNA had been cancelled.
A couple of years ago, I messaged the author over Facebook and requested the author sign some bookplates that I would send with an included SASE, and I was happy when she agreed. Now I have a wonderful series to reread with even more meaning than when my teenage self first found it!
