The time it was about origin stories

The time it was about origin stories

As soon as I saw that Kami Garcia had written an X-Files origin book, I was in. Especially since the launch party was going to be at Mysterious Galaxy. And when Macmillan contacted me to moderate, my fangirl heart almost exploded. As always, we got to the store early. I ran amok, chatted with the awesome employees, and ransacked the super secret back room. Hubs just hung out. The Macmillan publicist, Kelsey, got to the store and I introduced myself […]

The time it was SDCC 2014

The time it was SDCC 2014

SDCC is always a given for us. 2014 was my 18th year going and it’s something I look forward to every year. We didn’t get preview night this year, but went down to the gaslamp quarter to hang out. We walked around a few art galleries,  got drunk ate at Barley Mash and met up with Colleen for even more drinks. Thursday Thursday was our first official day. We picked up our badges and headed straight to the Penguin booth […]

The time there were stories

The time there were stories

I had planned on catching Kami at her date at The Grove. However, as I was expecting to be driving back from Arizona on that day, I wasn’t entirely sure. And then a date was announced at MG a day later, so of course that’s where I decided to go. I met Michelle for a coffee date before hand and we actually behaved ourselves once we got into the store. For every copy of Unbreakable that was purchased, a raffle ticket was given […]

The time it was SDCC 2013

So. SDCC has always been something we’ve gone to. This year was year 17 of attending. As always, it’s a mixture of awesome and a hot mess. Thursday We had a late start on Thursday, getting down to the convention center around 11:30. After battling parking and getting our badges, we were finally on the floor. As we walked through autograph alley, I immediately ran into Myra, Lo and Stephanie and was introduced to Alison. After talking to Myra for […]

The time there were two signings in one day

The time there were two signings in one day

Going to the Beautiful Redemption release party was something I went back and forth with. Knowing for certain that I’d be going to see Heather Brewer in the afternoon, I couldn’t decide if it would be easier to try and see Kami and Margie on another date. Needless to say, we decided to make a day of it… Since it wasn’t wristbanded, we didn’t have to leave San Diego at stupid o’clock in the morning. We got up to The Grove […]

The time we went to ALA

The time we went to ALA

I bought tickets for ALA12 in Anaheim before I even knew what it was. I figured for $25 it was worth a chance. Plus, I’ve spent way more on less. Leading up to the start, I made a list of various authors who were going to be there and the ARCs I was going to try and get my hands on. The ever so lovely Michelle shared her awesome chart with me and when I finally looked all through it, […]

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, […]
