The time I had no clever story

The time I had no clever story

I don’t have any good stories for obtaining autographed copies of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer or Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I sadly didn’t get to meet either author, just ordered them from bookstores. I couldn’t get to San Francisco for Michelle Hodkin. There was another signing I was attending during Laini Taylor at MG RB. I will be paying attention *cough* stalking *cough* both authors for future books [Mara 2!!!] and tours.

The time I almost drove to North Carolina

The time I almost drove to North Carolina

I admit to being way behind on the new releases in books.  I had no idea wtf Twilight was and only started reading it because I didn’t have the next book in the Kathy Reichs series I was reading.  Yes, I had heard a lot about it, but my copy of Twilight just sat on my desk for a few weeks until that day… Anyhoo, I had heard a lot about Anna and the French Kiss. A lot.  I was searching for it on the day […]

The time I finally met Heather Brewer

The time I finally met Heather Brewer

When the 2011 Comic-con list of appearances came out, we saw that Heather Brewer was doing a few and we made sure to rearrange everything to get to her.  Her first one at the Mysterious Galaxy booth was the plan, but we never made it.  We did make it to the appearance at the Penguin booth. I think we got to the booth an hour or so before she was scheduled.  I remember the people running the booth asking if I knew […]

The time I first went into Mysterious Galaxy

The time I first went into Mysterious Galaxy

I don’t remember how I got into the Beautiful Creatures series.  All I do know is that Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl were doing a signing at the Mysterious Galaxy store in San Diego.  I went down to the store a few days before the signing to buy the second book they were promoting, Beautiful Darkness, and get some information on how the signing was going to work. I ended up also buying a hardcover version of Beautiful Creatures that was […]

The time I didn’t meet Heather Brewer

The time I didn’t meet Heather Brewer

At the 2010 Comic-con, we saw a lot of people who were carrying around tote bags with a smiley vampire face on it.  Every time I saw one, I would stop the person and ask where they got it.  No one seemed to remember.  My husband probably wanted to kill me because it became a mission.  I didn’t know what it was for, but it didn’t matter. I had to have one. Finally, we got some specific directions from a […]

The time I was floored by RuPaul

The time I was floored by RuPaul

I’ve always been a huge RuPaul fan.  And I loooooove drag queens.  Somehow I found out that he was going to be signing his book Workin’ It!: RuPaul’s Guide to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Style at Obelisk in Hillcrest.  Tickets and books were bought, camera batteries were immediately charged. On the day of the signing, we got down there about 90 minutes before it was about to start.  There was already a line of people about a block […]

The time I was kissed by Russell Brand

The time I was kissed by Russell Brand

I’m pretty sure the first book signing I ever went to was Russell Brand.  I’ve always liked him and my husband found out the day before that he was doing an appearance at the B&N at the Grove in Orange County.  We drove up, on a whim, not actually expecting to get tickets. The B&N at the Grove is huge.  I mean, it’s 3 stories with escalators, huge.  We were able to get wristbands for the event [after buying 2 […]
