The time I went to WonderCon

The time I went to WonderCon

When I told people we were going to WonderCon, I got one of two reactions. Either “why waste your time?” or “what’s WonderCon?”. Admittedly, I fell into the latter category. We’ve been going to Comic-con for 15 years and never once heard of WonderCon. After seeing how cheap tickets were, we figured why not? Saturday was interesting. We got up late and with the rain, didn’t get to Anaheim until 11:30 or so.  I’m not sure what I was expecting, […]

The time I didn’t read the books before the signing

The time I didn’t read the books before the signing

I had heard all sorts of good things about Vroman’s bookstore in Pasadena. When I saw that Lauren Oliver was signing, I was all over it. Add Claudia Gray and I was set… I ordered the books through the website with a note that I would be picking the books on the day of the event. When we got to Vroman’s, I was instructed to go to the will call section upstairs. The woman who helped me, Mary, was extraordinarily […]

The time I wanted the Australian cover

The time I wanted the Australian cover

I fell in love with Graffiti Moon instantly. The lyrical way Cath Crowley tells the story of Lucy and Ed while they look for Shadow made me feel as if I was in the van, right next to them. As soon as I finished the book, I first went looking for Cath’s website to see if there was a chance to get a signed copy. After it seemed nearly impossible, I then went hunting for a copy with an Australian […]

The time I got book plates

The time I got book plates

Once upon a time, someone retweeted a post by Megan Crewe.  She was offering personalized book plates for her new release The Way We Fall.  All you had to do was go to her website and provide an address and who it was to be made out to.  The day that I read it was the last day that she was offering it. The Way We Fall had been on my TBR list, but I hadn’t bought it yet [I’m […]

The time Blue Willow Bookshop was so helpful

The time Blue Willow Bookshop was so helpful

The cover of Everneath by Brodi Ashton sucked me in right away.  I ordered a copy to be signed at her launch party being held at the King’s English Bookstore [SLC, Utah]. The event was being held at the end of January. I had wanted Incarnate by Jodi Meadows pretty much right after I read the synopsis for it.  Always one to want a signed copy, I hunted her down and ended up ordering the book online at the Dark Days event […]

The time I almost left before the signing

The time I almost left before the signing

At the beginning of the month, when the Breathless Reads tour was announced, I emailed Once Upon a Time bookstore to see if it was going to be a ticketed event. Meaning you either had to spend so much money or just buy one book to get a number the corresponded to where in the line you would be. I mentioned that I lived in San Diego and planned on driving up for the event, so I wanted to make […]

The time Linda from Mysterious Galaxy was extra awesome

The time Linda from Mysterious Galaxy was extra awesome

So.  A few weeks ago, Stacey Jay was tweeting back and forth with Mysterious Galaxy about her upcoming visit to San Diego and how she wanted to come into the store and sign their back stock.  Seeing that I follow both, I was privy to the entire conversation and I eagerly jumped in, first asking Stacey if she would sign my copy of Juliet Immortal that I dropped off and then asking MG if they would let me drop a […]
