The time I got a headstone

Seeing Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff is always a sure thing. Seeing them at Mysterious Galaxy with Marie Lu is just a bonus. I was able to call in and get our numbers before hand, so we got to the store after 4pm and sort of settled in. Well, we ran around in the back room, where I lost my mind over this… …and got some chocolate mouse at the delicious bakery. Chairs were put out early because the store […]

The time it was about YallWest {2}

Michelle and I went to YallWest last year and we knew it was going to be a sure thing this year too. We ended up getting a hotel and going up with Keiko and another friend. Because there were so many authors attending this year {170 in comparison to 60 last year}, we decided to each make a top 5 must-see list. That way it sort of helped with how many books we took {it didn’t} and regulated where we […]

The time we were in a wedding

The time we were in a wedding

When I saw that Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner were going to be in Vegas, it immediately went on the calendar. Vegas isn’t too far away and once I mentioned it to Keiko and Michelle, we all decided to go. Annnnnd then I told Amie that we would see her and she was excited about it, so it was a sure thing. As the day of the event got closer, Michelle was unable to go and Keiko was sick, so […]

The time it was by candlelight

When I saw that Amie and Jay were coming to San Diego for Illuminae, it was a definite thing. Add the fact that Leigh was also going to be at the event and I was prepared to take the day off and camp out in front of the store. Michelle and I met up super early to have snacks and catch up since it had been a while we had seen each other. We got back to Mysterious Galaxy around […]

The time I had to use a microphone {2}

The time I had to use a microphone {2}

I was asked to be the moderator for the event with Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff, and Victoria Aveyard and was completely surprised. Even though I was mildly petrified about doing it {you would think with as much as I don’t shut up, it wouldn’t be a problem}, I just had to say yes. The day of the event, we got to Huntington Beach a couple hours early. Because traffic. I met up with the events manager, Jeanne, and we chatted […]

The time we had a gag order

The time we had a gag order

When Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner announced a US tour, I was really hoping they would do a SoCal date because I didn’t get to see them when they were at MGRB. So of course when a date at MG was announced, Michelle and I were going. We met at the new store {OMG SO GORGEOUS!} and we got books before heading to Cocos for pie. They set up the seating in the New Event Area and got front row […]
