The time it was about YallWest

I’ve always wanted to go to YALLFest, but was never able to make it happen. Obviously I was beyond elated to see that Margie and Melissa were going to put together a sister festival. And when the author list was announced, it was a sure thing. Michelle and I got to the high school around 8:30. There was a meet and greet coffee thing with Penguin at 9, so we had plans for that. The line when we got there […]

The time it was my birthday {2}

The time it was my birthday {2}

I just happened to see the tweet from either Kasie West or Shannon Messenger about the quick summer tour with Amy Tintera and Debra Driza. I immediately added it to the calendar and figured it was a sure thing because the LA date was the same as my birthday. On the day of the event, I left work early and headed up to the Barnes and Noble it was being held at. Traffic on the 5N was a total hooker […]

The time there was wine

The time there was wine

When the launch party was announced for Amy Tintera and Debra Driza, it immediately went on the calendar. I was never 100% sure that I was able to go, but I knew I was going to try. It wasn’t until the night before that it was decided. We got up to Skylight Books around 3:30. The bookstore is gorgeous. After buying books, we strolled around Los Feliz. The neighborhood is pretty amazing. Not only is it on the same block […]

The time we spent the day in the shade

The time we spent the day in the shade

We went to Festival of Books last year and it was pretty amazing. So I knew I would be going again, I just had to wait until the list of authors was released to decide how long I’d be there for. I made my plans the day before. And while there were going to be several authors that I love seeing, I was really focused on seeing people that normally weren’t in the LA area. There were only two for […]

The time I almost didn’t have books

The time I almost didn’t have books

When it was announced that Gretchen, Debra and Shannon were doing a library event just a few minutes away from me, I knew I was going. What I didn’t know was how difficult it would be to find books to bring. I went to Barnes & Noble first because they’re 30 seconds away from my apartment. I was told that none of the books were in stock because the paperback copies were being released in September. I asked for clarification […]

The time I was talked into more books

The time I was talked into more books

When the Dark Days tour was posted, I had “leg 1” authors taken care of and Jennifer had “leg 2” taken care of and then we swapped. Thankfully, before she went to her tour stop, Mysterious Galaxy announced a date with Debra. With Shannon Messenger, Robin Benway and Chris Howard. So of course I was going. Michelle wasn’t able to come out and play, so I forced Hubs to come with me. We got there early, as always. I ended […]
