The time it was a day trip to Arizona

The time it was a day trip to Arizona

When the Fierce Reads tour was announced, it wasn’t coming to California. It was coming to Arizona and I debated going. I love Leigh like crazy, but she’s in LA, so I knew I would see her eventually. My main draw was Emma Mills. The week before the event Keiko said she would go with me…and that solidified going. We left Cali at 7am and made it to the state line just after 9am. We stopped at a Starbucks and […]

The time it was SDCC 2016

The time it was SDCC 2016

Going to San Diego Comic-Con is not always a sure thing, but it has been for the last 20 years.  And even though I’m seriously showing my age here, it has been so much fun watching SDCC evolve and change and get bigger.  The first year we went, we walked right up to the door, paid $10, and walked in.  Now everything from badges, to hotels to parking is all done online. For the past 2 years, I’ve been lucky […]

The time we were almost late, but not really

The time we were almost late, but not really

Even though we had just had the opportunity to see all four of the Fierce Reads ladies at YallWest, Michelle and I still decided to go. For me, I was super excited to see Marie and flail all over her for The Winner’s Kiss. Traffic was a nightmare. We left San Diego at 1 and didn’t get to Pasadena until after 4. Past experience with this store has shown that if you’re not in the event area by 4, there’s […]

The time it was by candlelight

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 it was SDCC 2015

If you follow this blog at all, you know that SDCC is serious business. This year was something a little different from the previous 19 or so years I’ve gone. This year I had a press pass. I didn’t think I would qualify for it, but I submitted an application for the blog and I was approved!! Wednesday Michelle and I made plans to meet up with Katie in Wednesday since we only ever see her in lines. We had […]

The time it was about YallWest

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 we got library cards

The time we got library cards

When the Fierce Reads spring tour was announced, I eagerly awaited to see the dates and who was coming. And yay! The first date of the second leg was at the San Diego public library, so Michelle and I made plans to go. On the day of, I ran around picking up books. When we went to the Marissa Meyer event at the library, the set up was a bit odd for buying books and then getting them signed, so […]
