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. […]

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 cover reveal {10}

I think by now it’s not a secret just how much I adore Tamara Ireland Stone.  Her books are some of my favorites and Bennett was one of my first official book boyfriends.  I’ve traveled to San Francisco to see her for all three of her launch parties and I just can’t gush enough about her or her magical words. So when a casual and secret conversation turned into a serious offer about helping her reveal the cover for Time […]

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is a freebie and since I haven’t been participating in TTT for that long, I went to the mega spreadsheet and immediately saw 5 topics I wanted to do. I couldn’t decide, so I made Hubs choose for me. I’m going to go with to go with Top Fifteen Ten Books I’d Want on a Desert Island. The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle […]

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 […]
