As soon as Mariah got out from school, we were on our way to San Diego for the night's festivities with the amazing author, Richelle Mead.
Mariah and I had a somewhat smooth drive up until we hit the I-805. Luckily, the traffic wasn't at a dead-stop. Yes, we made good time. We even had time to sit and chat with my friend, Pamela! Yay!!! We finally officially have met. We have had several almost meetings at various events, but this event was the one that we were actually able to come together and have fun.
Being our first time going to an author event at a Mysterious Galaxy bookstore, I wanted to get there early so I could check out the place and ask a few questions regarding the event. The store is a small and quaint place in San Diego...not difficult to find. And the staff were amazing and helpful...yes, they rocked!
