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 I got Josh

The time I got Josh

When I saw Kiersten White announce her launch party for Illusions of Fate, it immediately went on the calendar. And then I actually opened my eyes and saw that Stephanie Perkins and Natalie Whipple were going to be there, it was a definite thing. We got to the store just after 5. The small event area was already set up and the first two rows were already taken. {Oh! The horror!} I bought my books and settled in to wait. […]

This year, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to go. Work has been a hooker lately and it was very last minute that I was officially going. I got the affirmative from work around the same time I saw this info from Stephanie Perkins […]

The time Lucy broke down on the 405

The time Lucy broke down on the 405

We were on our way to the Barnes and Noble in Huntington Beach and I was driving my MINI Cooper, Lucy. Pretty much right after merging from the toll road to the 405N, an indicator light came on warning me that my engine was too hot. We started pulling of the freeway and thankfully we did because the warning light turned red and Lucy was officially overheating. Before I even had time to call the dealer, a CHP/roadside service guy […]

The time we went to Festival of Books

The time we went to Festival of Books

I’m not going to recount my ordeals with getting information about the author panels versus author signings because I’m pretty sure everyone already knows about it. I’ve been pretty whiny about it over the last couple of weeks. Needless to say, we got up to FOB just after 11:15. We had already missed the John Green panel that we had tickets for were just trying to get to the YA panel with Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, Lauren Kate and DJ […]
