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 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 about Crooked Kingdom

The time it was about Crooked Kingdom

I think it’s pretty clear that I have an unhealthy amount of adoration for Leigh Bardugo and her words. I mean, I got a Six of Crows tattoo and she officially welcomed me to the Dregs. She’s feisty and fun and I almost lose my shit every time I see her.  So it goes without saying that when I got the email from Macmillan asking if I wanted to be a part of the blog tour for Crooked Kingdom, I […]

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 about YallWest {2}

Michelle and I went to YallWest last year and we knew it was going to be a sure thing this year too. We ended up getting a hotel and going up with Keiko and another friend. Because there were so many authors attending this year {170 in comparison to 60 last year}, we decided to each make a top 5 must-see list. That way it sort of helped with how many books we took {it didn’t} and regulated where we […]
