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 […]

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 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 […]
