Event: Girls Gone Sci-Fi

March 26th, 2015 Kaitlin Posted in Event Comments Off on Event: Girls Gone Sci-Fi

So I went over to Mysterious Galaxy to go to a pretty big signing with four authors – it was supposed to be five, but unfortunately Debra Driz had to cancel. I already loved two authors there, Jessica Khoury and Melissa Landers, for Alienated and Origin (check them out, they’re amazing!) The others, Claudia Gray and Jessica Brody, I’ve heard amazing things about. Since so many people were very early, we started pretty early with a Q and A and talked about Claudia Gray’s new collaboration. Also, kapibaras in ballerina costumes and treadmills for puppies. And what’s the difference between poop and skat? Pretty odd topics — I know, you’re jealous you weren’t there.

The covers for all their books were all display. They are all absolutely gorgeous!


I thought it was pretty cool that each author introduced another and made it clear that they support one another, despite their inclusion with four different publishing houses.

There was an awesome game called Book Boyfriends where they had the boys from each novel answer questions and a member of the audience chose her favorite. They also had the audience choose random pages that they would read passages from, and let me say, each of these authors are very eloquent.

Random piece of info: the first thing Jessica Khoury did after getting her first book deal was paying off a 112 dollar library fee from renting out audiobooks.

After the authors pitched their books, I wanted to read everything. I ended up reading A Thousand Pieces of You since then, which was epic and full of plot twists. The idea of the dimensional travel and the firebird was so interesting and unique! I can’t wait for the second.

It was a fun experience and all the authors were very funny! I got lots of swag!

Event: Marie Lu Signing

January 18th, 2015 Kaitlin Posted in Event Comments Off on Event: Marie Lu Signing

Awhile back (a long while back), I went to a signing at Mysterious Galaxy for Marie Lu. It was lots of fun and Lu was hilarious. Here are some random facts about her.

LegendThe Young Elites

-Legend was the easiest book for Marie Lu to write. It took four months!

-Adelina’s perspective was extremely difficult to flow. It was unsettling for her to be in the mind of somebody of a future Darth Vader.

-When Adelina’s thoughts got dark sometimes Lu had to go pet her dog and separate herself from the character.

-The second book will definitely be darker than the first. She’s  trying to find a line where she’s gone too far.

-Lu totally understands if readers don’t like Adelina, but she hope she interests them!

-She doesn’t outline a lot, she does one or two chapters in advance before writing those, then outlining the next two- a “headline writer”

-She is a morning person. She writes more in the morning and is easily distracted by music with lyrics.

-She hasn’t written anything in three weeks, she’s been reading to replenish the creative well.

-She can’t read when she’s drafting! A lot of the book she’s reading has ideas that will accidentally end up in the book.

-Drafting is by far the most difficult thing for her by far. She hates it. It’s a celebration when she finishes her first draft, she like revisions better.

-Many plot holes have to be filled in her second drafts.

-Adelina was inspired by nobody in real life (thankfully), but by her favorite villains. I love villains. What that says about me I’m not sure.

-She thinks Superman is good looking.

-Favorite authors include Brian Jakes, who got her into fantasy, Jacklyn Carrie, and Tolkien. And of course J. K Rowling!

-Her first story was a fanfiction of Sonic the Hedgehog finding his inner speed after breaking his legs under a tree.

-She crushes on fictional characters.

-When she was a child she wanted to be a fighter pilot, but her mom shot that down by reminding her how bad her eyesight was.

-She loves American Horror Story.

I haven’t yet read The Young Elites, but Legend was a lot of fun!

It was lots of fun meeting Marie Lu.
