The time it was about friendship

The time it was about friendship

When I saw that Gayle Forman was going to be at Vroman’s, I knew I wanted to go, but wasn’t sure I was going to be able to. Hubs can’t take a lot of time off from work during the week and I didn’t really want to drive up to Pasadena by myself. Thankfully, Michelle wanted to go, so we planned a date. We got up to the store just after 5. After buying our books, we went to the […]

The time it was California Bookstore Day

The time it was California Bookstore Day

When California Bookstore Day was announced, it was definitely something I wanted to go to [especially when Mysterious Galaxy announced Kimberly Derting, Margaret Stohl and Alyson Noel were signing], but again, with work, I wasn’t sure I would be able to go. By now, we all know that I’ve got an amazing job where I don’t have to work weekends!! So, I got down to MG around 12:30. Rob told me that they had already sold out of all of […]

The time it was SDCC 2013

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 Comic-Con 2012

The time we went to Comic-Con 2012

Last year, we got up at 3am and waited in line for 6 hours to buy our 2012 CC passes when they were still doing onsite ticketing. I can’t complain because we ended up meeting Matt Smith in the middle of the road and he was super nice and took pictures with us. Anyhoo. We weren’t super excited about it right away. We’ve been every year for 16 years or so and while it’s been interesting watching the growth and […]

The time I won a rubber bracelet

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 I first went into Mysterious Galaxy

The time I first went into Mysterious Galaxy

I don’t remember how I got into the Beautiful Creatures series.  All I do know is that Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl were doing a signing at the Mysterious Galaxy store in San Diego.  I went down to the store a few days before the signing to buy the second book they were promoting, Beautiful Darkness, and get some information on how the signing was going to work. I ended up also buying a hardcover version of Beautiful Creatures that was […]
