The time it was my blogiversary

The time it was my blogiversary

Well.  It’s been a year. When I started this blog [Thank you, LeAnna], I never expected to continue writing things, let alone be recognized at various events by people.  Needless to say, this year has been quite interesting.  I’ve gotten some amazing books, met some awesome people, seen some phenomenal authors and found some friends I can’t live without. And for all of this, I say thank you.  The best way to show my appreciation for all of you reading […]

The time we drove to San Francisco

The time we drove to San Francisco

I got a copy of Time Between Us when we went to ALA. I admit it did sit in my TBR stack for a while, but once I found it, I read it in one night. And as I do when I’m done with a book I love, I checked the author page to see about appearances. When I saw the launch party was going to be in San Francisco, I figured it was completely doable. Hubs will usually agree […]

The time we met one of the West Memphis Three

The time we met one of the West Memphis Three

Hearing about Damien Echols doing an appearance and signing was strictly luck. We had just watched part of Paradise Lost: 3 and I had just happened to see a tweet from Changing Hands Bookstore in Arizona. Damien had done a signing there the night before and Changing Hands provided a link for the rest of his tour stops. I clicked on the link in the tweet at the same time that I got an email from Book Soup with a list of events. […]

The time it was delightfully murderous

The time it was delightfully murderous

When Gretchen McNeil said she would have ARCs of Ten at WonderCon, it was a must for me. I was prepared to throw elbows, push children and basically do whatever it took to get a copy. Of course, all that build up meant that I was able to just walk up to the table and request a copy without any problem. Needless to say, when the launch party was announced at MGRB, it was a done deal. We got up to […]

The time we were unsupervised

The time we were unsupervised

Embrace has been on my TBR list for a while. A long while. When I saw that Jessica Shirvington was going to have the release party for Entice at MGRB, I was pretty sure I was going to go. We got up to the store early and bought books. We also got a spiffy reusable bag. After killing time, we got back to the store around 6:45 and proceeded to stand behind Jessica and her friend [handler? assistant? manager? agent?] at […]

The time it was at a library

The time it was at a library

While I’ve been able to see Lauren Kate at several events, I’ve never been able to hear her talk about the Fallen series. So, when I heard through Mrs. Nelson’s that she had announced a date at the Ontario public library, I was definitely going to try to make it. We got up to the library just after 1:30. They had a table display right inside the door. One of the library workers, Courtney, happened to be walking around and she showed us […]

The time it was mostly a Q&A session

The time it was mostly a Q&A session

I happened to find out about Amanda Hocking on accident. I was intrigued about her books and was free the night of the event, so I figured why not. I got down to MG just before 6pm.  I had purchased Wake already and wasn’t planning on purchasing any of the other books.  Then when I walked into the store and saw the other books sitting there, I had to look at them.  And then I had to buy them. Amanda […]
