The time Duff McKagan liked my name

The time Duff McKagan liked my name

So, while I was dealing with Mr. Cranky Pants at Warwick’s, my husband noticed that they had a flyer up promoting the book tour stop with Duff McKagan.  Of course we bought books for the signing and with that, got group B tickets. We were told that there wasn’t going to be any sort of Q&A, it was going to be a signing and nothing else. We got to the bookstore and there were a lot of people there.  Apparently, Warwick’s procedure […]

The time I won a rubber bracelet

I had Beautiful Chaos on pre-order as soon as I got the alert in my email.  Knowing there was going to be a book tour for it, I started watching the events page on Kami and Margaret’s website.  The Santa Monica date was posted immediately, but I was sort of holding out for an appearance at Mysterious Galaxy.  Nothing against B&N, of course, I just didn’t particularly want to drive back up to LA after being there 2 days prior. However, […]

The time an old man tried to beat me to the assigned seating

The time an old man tried to beat me to the assigned seating

Finding out that Kathy Reichs was doing a book tour was really exciting.  I had just finished reading all of her Temperance Brennan books, save for the newest one, Flash and Bones.  I am also a huge Bones fan and was stupid thrilled that she was going to be in La Jolla for a night, promoting the second book in her YA Virals series. I won’t bother going into details about the hideous employee at Warwick’s that I had to […]

The time I got all fangirly over Lauren Kate

The time I got all fangirly over Lauren Kate

I found Lauren Kate’s book Fallen on accident.  I was walking around Target, waiting for my husband to come back from Starbucks and passed the book section.  Always one to go look at books, I just started perusing the covers and stopped when I saw this… I still think it’s one of the prettiest covers I’ve ever seen. I read the back and was vaguely interested.  They had 2 of the 3 books that had been released on the shelf, but […]

The time I had no clever story

The time I had no clever story

I don’t have any good stories for obtaining autographed copies of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer or Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I sadly didn’t get to meet either author, just ordered them from bookstores. I couldn’t get to San Francisco for Michelle Hodkin. There was another signing I was attending during Laini Taylor at MG RB. I will be paying attention *cough* stalking *cough* both authors for future books [Mara 2!!!] and tours.

The time I almost drove to North Carolina

The time I almost drove to North Carolina

I admit to being way behind on the new releases in books.  I had no idea wtf Twilight was and only started reading it because I didn’t have the next book in the Kathy Reichs series I was reading.  Yes, I had heard a lot about it, but my copy of Twilight just sat on my desk for a few weeks until that day… Anyhoo, I had heard a lot about Anna and the French Kiss. A lot.  I was searching for it on the day […]

The time I finally met Heather Brewer

The time I finally met Heather Brewer

When the 2011 Comic-con list of appearances came out, we saw that Heather Brewer was doing a few and we made sure to rearrange everything to get to her.  Her first one at the Mysterious Galaxy booth was the plan, but we never made it.  We did make it to the appearance at the Penguin booth. I think we got to the booth an hour or so before she was scheduled.  I remember the people running the booth asking if I knew […]
