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 I asked for crazy inscriptions

The time I asked for crazy inscriptions

Whenever Tahereh Mafi is in SoCal, I try to go see her. So, of course when I saw that she was signing at the Grove after the Dark Days tour was over, it was a definite thing. We got up to The Grove around 4, bought all of the books and then went to grab some food. Hubs and I split up when we got back to the store. I went upstairs and got in the already formed line, he […]

The time it was the longest event

The time it was the longest event

I wasn’t planning on recapping this event. I’ve seen these particular authors a zillion times and I figured it would be nice to actually just sit back and listen without having to take notes. And then I had a couple of people tell me that they couldn’t wait to read my post on it. Sooooo. Lets see what I come up with, shall we? I got to Mysterious Galaxy early to meet Michelle for Starbucks. I was there first because traffic was horrible […]

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 we were last

The time we were last

As soon as I posted that I was going to the Dark Days tour with Tahereh Mafi, Cynthia Hand, Veronica Rossi and Brodi Ashton, friends started asking if I could pick up books for them.  At first count, I was going to have 36 books for the four ladies.  It ended up being 19 to bring, with 11 to pick up. We started up to Huntington Beach early, hitting the store around 4. We had front row AND Jeanne was […]

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 it was a social event

The time it was a social event

Trying to hunt down Cynthia Hand has been a difficult task. As soon as Hallowed came out, I was watching her website for any upcoming signings. When the Spring Into the Future tour was announced and I saw that Cynthia was scheduled to be appearing at the LA stop, I double checked the date. She had the dates listed for the RT convention instead of the LA stop. I had tweeted her and didn’t hear anything back right away. So. […]
