The time I paid attention

The time I paid attention

I actually noticed all of the talk that was going around about Legend. It was everywhere. Once I read the synopsis of the book, I was definitely interested. I found Marie online and saw that her release party was going to be held at MGRB. That’s all it took. We got up to the store about an hour before the start time. I immediately went to the signed YA section see what was there… I didn’t get to stay long […]

The time Kurt Loder bowed down to me

The time Kurt Loder bowed down to me

Kurt Loder represents pretty much the entire span of my teenage years.  Growing up, Mtv was always on [you know, back when they actually showed videos], so Kurt was my source for any sort of news, music related or otherwise.  I mean, he’s the one who told me that Kurt Cobain was dead, so in my opinion, he’s golden.  You can imagine my reaction when I saw that he was doing a signing… We got up to Book Soup and purchased the […]

The time I got all swoony over Butch with a book

The time I got all swoony over Butch with a book

Butch Walker has been one of my favorite musicians for years.  I found him on a website [Metal Sludge] that my husband read all the time.  He had done an interview and I liked the answers enough to click on the link for his own website.  One listen to the song “My Way” from his new-at-the-time cd Left of Self Centered and I was hooked. Flash forward 9 years and I get an email update that says Butch has written […]

The time Duff McKagan liked my name

The time Duff McKagan liked my name

So, while I was dealing with Mr. Cranky Pants at Warwick’s, my husband noticed that they had a flyer up promoting the book tour stop with Duff McKagan.  Of course we bought books for the signing and with that, got group B tickets. We were told that there wasn’t going to be any sort of Q&A, it was going to be a signing and nothing else. We got to the bookstore and there were a lot of people there.  Apparently, Warwick’s procedure […]

The time I won a rubber bracelet

The time I won a rubber bracelet

I had Beautiful Chaos on pre-order as soon as I got the alert in my email.  Knowing there was going to be a book tour for it, I started watching the events page on Kami and Margaret’s website.  The Santa Monica date was posted immediately, but I was sort of holding out for an appearance at Mysterious Galaxy.  Nothing against B&N, of course, I just didn’t particularly want to drive back up to LA after being there 2 days prior. However, […]

The time an old man tried to beat me to the assigned seating

The time an old man tried to beat me to the assigned seating

Finding out that Kathy Reichs was doing a book tour was really exciting.  I had just finished reading all of her Temperance Brennan books, save for the newest one, Flash and Bones.  I am also a huge Bones fan and was stupid thrilled that she was going to be in La Jolla for a night, promoting the second book in her YA Virals series. I won’t bother going into details about the hideous employee at Warwick’s that I had to […]

The time I got all fangirly over Lauren Kate

The time I got all fangirly over Lauren Kate

I found Lauren Kate’s book Fallen on accident.  I was walking around Target, waiting for my husband to come back from Starbucks and passed the book section.  Always one to go look at books, I just started perusing the covers and stopped when I saw this… I still think it’s one of the prettiest covers I’ve ever seen. I read the back and was vaguely interested.  They had 2 of the 3 books that had been released on the shelf, but […]
