The time it was about origin stories

The time it was about origin stories

As soon as I saw that Kami Garcia had written an X-Files origin book, I was in. Especially since the launch party was going to be at Mysterious Galaxy. And when Macmillan contacted me to moderate, my fangirl heart almost exploded. As always, we got to the store early. I ran amok, chatted with the awesome employees, and ransacked the super secret back room. Hubs just hung out. The Macmillan publicist, Kelsey, got to the store and I introduced myself […]

The time it was a light universe

The time it was a light universe

So any time I see that Jennifer Niven is going to be within a driving distance away from me, I always try to go. And when I saw that she was going to be doing an event with Jay Asher, it was a sure sure thing. The day of was a hot mess. Hubs was not able to leave work as early as he expected, it started raining, and traffic was a mess. I was sort of freaking out because […]

The time I got a headstone

The time I got a headstone

Seeing Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff is always a sure thing. Seeing them at Mysterious Galaxy with Marie Lu is just a bonus. I was able to call in and get our numbers before hand, so we got to the store after 4pm and sort of settled in. Well, we ran around in the back room, where I lost my mind over this… …and got some chocolate mouse at the delicious bakery. Chairs were put out early because the store […]

The time it was about pink

The time it was about pink

As soon as I saw that Gretchen McNeil and Kasie West we’re going to be touring together, it was a definite thing. Michelle, Keiko, and I grabbed some Starbucks and got on the freeway around 10am. The plan was to get to Pasadena early and grab lunch, but traffic didn’t actually let that happen. But, we did see this: …so there’s that. We got to Vroman’s around 1:15. We grabbed front row seats, bought books, and settled in to read. […]

The time it was a day trip to Arizona

The time it was a day trip to Arizona

When the Fierce Reads tour was announced, it wasn’t coming to California. It was coming to Arizona and I debated going. I love Leigh like crazy, but she’s in LA, so I knew I would see her eventually. My main draw was Emma Mills. The week before the event Keiko said she would go with me…and that solidified going. We left Cali at 7am and made it to the state line just after 9am. We stopped at a Starbucks and […]

The time I was given more foreign copies

The time I was given more foreign copies

Going to the launch party for Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven was a definite. Michelle and I had planned to go, but she went to Disneyland with family instead {totally valid reason}, so I got Hubs to drive. We started the drive to Santa Monica around 2:15. Traffic is always a hot mess and we’d rather have time to kill than be late. Apparently there was a shooting earlier in the day at the exit we needed. Even […]

The time it was about Welcome to Night Vale

The time it was about Welcome to Night Vale

When Maryelizabeth emailed me about moderating the event for Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, I admitted that I had never listened to the Welcome to Night Vale podcast. I asked her to give me some time to listen to a couple of episodes and get back to her. And the next day, I listed to 17 episodes in one day. Needless to say, I eagerly agreed. The time leading up to the event was insanely surreal for me. I got […]
