The time it was not by candlelight

Seeing Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner is always a sure thing.  I love these two ladies and their books and there’s absolutely no way I would ever miss them coming within 500 miles of me.  So when it was announced they were coming to Mysterious Galaxy for Unearthed, I couldn’t add it to my calendar fast enough. Hubs and I met Michelle at Habit for our pre-game ritual before heading over to the bookstore.  We chatted up our favorite booksellers, […]

Going to Maggie Stiefvater was always a sure thing. We ordered our tickets and were eagerly awaiting the event. I’ve met Maggie a few times at SDCC, but I’ve never heard her talk, so I was beyond excited. Keiko and I got to MG eaaaaarrrrrrly. We chatted with the lovely staff, grabbed our usual seats, and settled in to wait. The crowd started showing up around 11:30. People were buying books and milling around the store. The seats were put […]

Seeing Marie Lu for Warcross was a sure thing and I forced Michelle to buy a ticket so she would come with me. I got down to the store earlier than normal and there was a local author meet and greet happening. I ended up going behind the counter and talking all things RuPaul’s Drag Race with a few of the MG employees while the event was finishing up. And then of course when Michelle showed up, there was some […]

The time it was about middle grade books

The time it was about middle grade books

Seeing Tamara Ireland Stone is always a given.  We have a standing date at her launch parties and I’ve driven up to San Francisco for all of them: Time Between Us, Time After Time, and Every Last Word.  This time around, Tamara told me that she would be coming to me. We got to the bookstore early enough for me to run amok, hug all of my favorite Mysterious Galaxy people, raid the back room, and peruse the YA section. […]

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 […]
