The time it was about Now I Rise

Kiersten White is a local author and she’s absolutely delightful.  I’ve always been a fan of her and her words, so when I got the email to participate in the blog tour for Now I Rise, I couldn’t fill out the form fast enough. Before we get to Kiersten’s interview, let’s check out the book! Title: Now I Rise {The Conqueror’s Saga #2} Author: Kiersten White Pub. Date: June 27, 2017 Publisher: Delacorte Press Pages: 496 Find it: PRH | […]


The time it was about YallWest {3}

The time it was about YallWest {3}

Michelle and I have gone to YallWest since it started, so it’s sort of a given that we’ll go.  This year, instead of being an evening event and two full days, it was only Friday night and Saturday.  We were a bit wary, but had tickets for Friday and our books flapped and ready to go. On Friday, Keiko, Michelle, and I headed up towards LA around 10am.  We ended up making several stops: Target, Starbucks, Downtown Disney…you know, normal […]

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 practically co-workers

The time we were practically co-workers

Going to see Kiersten White for her And I Darken launch party was a sure thing. And when Marie Lu was announced as joining her, Michelle and I couldn’t have been more excited. We got to the store around 4 or so. David came up to us and showed us this new suggestion book they had in the store and urged Michelle and I to add to it. We started with 5 and then we found that 5 wasn’t enough. […]

The time I took the display

The time I took the display

Seeing Veronica Rossi for Riders was a sure thing. Having the event with Mary Pearson and Kiersten White was an added bonus. Michelle, Keiko and I got to Mysterious Galaxy super early, as always. We grabbed some food and headed back to the store for shenanigans and back room raiding before settling into the front row to wait. Mary found us first and came over to say hi and say that our seats were reserved. She hugged us before going […]

The time it was all about writing

The time it was all about writing

I had heard all sorts of good things about Victoria Schwab’s books, so even though I hadn’t read them, we couldn’t pass up the chance to go to the signing. Michelle and I got to Habit to meet for our regular food date. We met Keiko and Sharon and then headed to Mysterious Galaxy for some light shenanigans. The ladies came out just after 7:30 and each author introduced themselves and the book they were there for. Kiersten acted as […]

The time it was about Pasadena Loves YA!

The time it was about Pasadena Loves YA!

When I was contacted to be a part of the blog tour to promote Pasadena Loves YA! {formerly Pasadena Teen Book Fest}, I immediately agreed.  I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to go because the day before is Disneyland’s 60th anniversary, it’s open for 24 hours and I’m totally going. If I do show up, there’s a good possibility I’ll be Disney drunk. Regardless, the people who are involved in putting it together are pretty awesome, so of course […]
