The time I saw a best selling author who can’t read

The time I saw a best selling author who can’t read

The Hubs is a huge Jason Ellis fan. We found his show on accident, driving home from a Kings of Leon show in AZ and from there, Hubs was a dedicated listener. Don’t get me wrong, I like Ellis, but I don’t get upset if it’s a “best of” week. Also, I don’t have satellite radio in Lucy, so I only listen when we’re in Hubs’ car. When Ellis talked about his book being released and the scheduled tour, we […]

The time Lucy broke down on the 405

The time Lucy broke down on the 405

We were on our way to the Barnes and Noble in Huntington Beach and I was driving my MINI Cooper, Lucy. Pretty much right after merging from the toll road to the 405N, an indicator light came on warning me that my engine was too hot. We started pulling of the freeway and thankfully we did because the warning light turned red and Lucy was officially overheating. Before I even had time to call the dealer, a CHP/roadside service guy […]

The time we went to Festival of Books

The time we went to Festival of Books

I’m not going to recount my ordeals with getting information about the author panels versus author signings because I’m pretty sure everyone already knows about it. I’ve been pretty whiny about it over the last couple of weeks. Needless to say, we got up to FOB just after 11:15. We had already missed the John Green panel that we had tickets for were just trying to get to the YA panel with Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, Lauren Kate and DJ […]

The time it was a social event

The time it was a social event

Trying to hunt down Cynthia Hand has been a difficult task. As soon as Hallowed came out, I was watching her website for any upcoming signings. When the Spring Into the Future tour was announced and I saw that Cynthia was scheduled to be appearing at the LA stop, I double checked the date. She had the dates listed for the RT convention instead of the LA stop. I had tweeted her and didn’t hear anything back right away. So. […]

The time it was short, but sweet

The time it was short, but sweet

I feel like it’s common knowledge that my love for Pride and Prejudice and zombies [as separate entities] is vast. Imagine my delight when Seth Grahame-Smith combined them in the book so cleverly titled Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I read it in one sitting and when Barnes & Noble came out with the special edition [“with 30% more zombies!!”], I was all over it. So. When I saw that Seth was going to be doing a signing to promote […]

The time I laughed a lot

The time I laughed a lot

I had gone back and forth trying to decide if I was going to go to the Christopher Moore signing at Mysterious Galaxy. I had read some of Lamb, but ended up giving it up after getting through about half of it. Not to say that it wasn’t funny, because it certainly was.  I think it was just a bit too dry for me. The topic of his new book, Sacré Bleu combined Paris and Van Gogh, so I was […]

The time I was a dead body

The time I was a dead body

Going to the Barry Lyga signing for I Hunt Killers was very spur of the moment. I had gone to MG to buy a book for another signing and decided why not… We got up to MGRB with time to kill, like always. I ended up going inside around 7 and was chatting with LeAnna [the sole reason this blog exists]. She mentioned that she was going to make an outline of a body and I offered to be the […]
