The time there were many hugs

The time there were many hugs

I learned that Stephanie Garber and Roshani Chokshi were going to be at Mysterious Galaxy before it was officially announced. The event went on the calendar right away and I couldn’t wait to see them both. Keiko and I got to bookstore early {or on time for us} to run amok and chat with the lovely employees. Stephanie got there early and we were able to chat with her and give hugs. Then Roshani got to the store early and […]

The time I talked about real pants

The time I talked about real pants

Once upon a time, I used to read adult books.  Every once in a while, I’ll request one that sounds good.  It’s rare, but if I see something that catches my eye, I’m all over it.  That was the case with Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia.  I straight up devoured it and there’s a good chance it’ll be one of my top books of the year. So, when I saw that Mindy was going to be […]

The time it was about origin stories

The time it was about origin stories

As soon as I saw that Kami Garcia had written an X-Files origin book, I was in. Especially since the launch party was going to be at Mysterious Galaxy. And when Macmillan contacted me to moderate, my fangirl heart almost exploded. As always, we got to the store early. I ran amok, chatted with the awesome employees, and ransacked the super secret back room. Hubs just hung out. The Macmillan publicist, Kelsey, got to the store and I introduced myself […]

The time I got a headstone

The time I got a headstone

Seeing Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff is always a sure thing. Seeing them at Mysterious Galaxy with Marie Lu is just a bonus. I was able to call in and get our numbers before hand, so we got to the store after 4pm and sort of settled in. Well, we ran around in the back room, where I lost my mind over this… …and got some chocolate mouse at the delicious bakery. Chairs were put out early because the store […]

The time it was about Welcome to Night Vale

The time it was about Welcome to Night Vale

When Maryelizabeth emailed me about moderating the event for Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, I admitted that I had never listened to the Welcome to Night Vale podcast. I asked her to give me some time to listen to a couple of episodes and get back to her. And the next day, I listed to 17 episodes in one day. Needless to say, I eagerly agreed. The time leading up to the event was insanely surreal for me. I got […]

The time we helped set up

The time we helped set up

Going to anything with Mary Pearson is always a given.  I’ve been to her launch parties for The Kiss of Deception and The Heart of Betrayal, so going for The Beauty of Darkness was a sure thing. Michelle, Keiko, and I got to the library around 5pm.  We were supposed to be interviewing Mary before the event started.  When we checked in with the library staff, no one knew anything about it and told us that the even space didn’t […]

The time the ocean met the stars

The time the ocean met the stars

I was “introduced” to Darcy Woods by Christina. I read Summer of Supernovas, fell in love with Grant the story and just happened to see that she was going to be at MG. So of course we had to go. Michelle and I met up at the store at our usual time {aka early} and found ourselves running amok in the store. Darcy, Marisa Reichardt and Sarah Tomp got to the store just before 7pm. They were introduced by Sam […]
