The time there was artwork

The time there was artwork

Finding out about Sacred was pure luck. I had just happened to read an article about the book on the same day that I was scrolling through Mysterious Galaxy’s event list. And since I’m a sucker for a release/launch party, it was a done deal. We got up to the store early, as usual. Killed some time getting the best hot chocolate EVER from Catalina coffee. When we went into the event area, they had different pieces of artwork up, all that […]

The time it wasn’t about Jersey Shore

The time it wasn’t about Jersey Shore

I don’t even know how I found Unraveling. I do know that I read it right away and loved Ben it.  Elizabeth [who used to live in San Diego] now lives in New York.  When I saw that Elizabeth was going to be at BEA, I begged Kassiah to get my book signed. And while the inscription wasn’t perfect, I was still so in love with it. Oh, and I got Ben. As soon as I heard that she was going […]

The time we sat in the super secret room

The time we sat in the super secret room

Velveteen was on my radar right away and when I found out that Danny Marks was going to be signing at MGRB, I knew I was going. We got up to the store early and when I walked by LeAnna’s office, Danny was already there. LeAnna waved me over and somehow I ended up sitting in the back room, listening to all sorts of stories. Some about Toddlers and Tiaras. Most which I am not allowed to repeat, but all hilarious. […]

The time we flew to Chicago

The time we flew to Chicago

I feel like it’s no secret how much I love The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, Noah Shaw and [obviously] Michelle Hodkin. I missed her in SF when she toured for UoMD and after reading it, I was determined to get to her. When ALA in Anaheim came around, The Evolution of Mara Dyer was the only arc I wanted. I would have give up everything else to have gotten that one book. Alas, they weren’t giving them out. Flash forward to September […]

The time there were two signings in one day

The time there were two signings in one day

Going to the Beautiful Redemption release party was something I went back and forth with. Knowing for certain that I’d be going to see Heather Brewer in the afternoon, I couldn’t decide if it would be easier to try and see Kami and Margie on another date. Needless to say, we decided to make a day of it… Since it wasn’t wristbanded, we didn’t have to leave San Diego at stupid o’clock in the morning. We got up to The Grove […]

The time I was part of a blog tour

The time I was part of a blog tour

I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the Breathless Reads boxed set when they came out. Right away, I fell in love with the cover of Venom. And after reading it, I couldn’t wait to meet Fiona and get a finished copy of the book. Towards the end of September, Paper Lantern tweeted that bloggers who were interested in participating in the online tour should send an email. Obviously, I’m not a reviewing book blogger, but […]
