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 didn’t meet Heather Brewer

The time I didn’t meet Heather Brewer

At the 2010 Comic-con, we saw a lot of people who were carrying around tote bags with a smiley vampire face on it.  Every time I saw one, I would stop the person and ask where they got it.  No one seemed to remember.  My husband probably wanted to kill me because it became a mission.  I didn’t know what it was for, but it didn’t matter. I had to have one. Finally, we got some specific directions from a […]

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 […]

The time I started a blog

First off, this idea is all LeAnna’s.  LeAnna works at Mysterious Galaxy in Redondo Beach.  I stopped there to pick up an autographed book I had ordered online, since I was unable to attend the signing.  We got to talking about all of the book signings I had been going to during the week [4 in 4 days] and she suggested that I start a blog, chronicling all of the authors I had met. She even said that I should find […]
