Maggie Stiefvater at Once Upon a Time Recap + Giveaway (US – Ends 8/17)

Why hello again. :) I had the pleasure of going to the last stop on Maggie Stiefvater’s Sinner tour this week held at Once Upon a Time in Montrose, CA. I was really excited to see Maggie as I missed her on the last tour and she is one of my very favorite authors. I got to play volunteer and helped set up the presentation area and also got to hand out the post its for the book signing. It actually really made me appreciate booksellers even more because helping prep for the signing of this size was quite a… Read more »

Hi, everyone! Today is the release day for Ruin & Rising by Leigh Barugo, the third book in the Grisha series.

Hi, everyone! I hope the week is going fantastic. It’s actually really flying by which is nice. Is it just me or do you start counting down the days until the weekend on Monday? Maybe it’s just me but I do love the weekend. This week was broken up by a really fun author event. Barnes & Noble at the Americana hosted Abbi Glines and Tammara Webber on May 6, 2014. Even though I left work a little early, it still took me over an hour to get there (grrr LA traffic). First things first though, I went and got dinner… Read more »

Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand & Jodi Meadows at MGRB Recap

Hello! I’ve been meaning to write this recap for a couple of weeks now and have only just found the time to sit down and do it. Sorry for the tardiness but I hope you still find this a fun read. A couple of weeks ago on March 29, 2014, Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and Jodi Meadows were scheduled for a signing at Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach. I really wasn’t sure if I was going to go because the store really isn’t that close to me but, in the end, I rallied to go and am glad that I did…. Read more »

Recap: S.J. Harper at Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach

Recap: S.J. Harper at Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach

Hi, everyone. As you may remember, a few weeks ago I mentioned that I went to Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach and happened upon a book signing for S.J. Harper’s new book, Cursed. S.J. Harper is the pen name for Jeanne C. Stein (Anna Strong) and Samantha Sommersby (Forbidden). Both are established names in urban fantasy and I decided to sit in on the signing to learn more about their new book. (Side note that I already read the book and really enjoyed it. I am excited for book 2!) The signing got off to a bit of a late start… Read more »

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending a signing by Elizabeth Wein for her new book Rose Under Fire. The signing was at Once Upon a Time in Montrose, CA which is a great little store. I met up early with @frootjoos, @thewindypages and @alybee930 to dinner beforehand and then settled into our front row seats. Elizabeth came out in a rockin’ vintage style polka dot dress with great red shoes. I didn’t get a shot of the shoes but Aly did and you can see them in her recap. Elizabeth started off the talk by telling us a… Read more »

Nalini Singh at Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach

Nalini Singh at Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach

Hi, everyone. This is a ridiculously late recap post. I don’t know what happened. I planned on writing this the same week it happened but time just got away from me and now it’s months later. Hope you guys don’t mind this trip down memory lane. :) If you don’t know, Nalini Singh is one of my most favorite authors. I’ll pretty much read anything by her. When I heard that she was touring for the newest book in her Psy-Changeling series, I was ecstatic. The SoCal tour stop was set for Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach, which isn’t that close… Read more »
