Smart Chicks Tour at Mysterious Galaxy – San Diego, CA

The Smart Chicks Tour hit San Diego and Mysterious Galaxy, one of our favorite indies! Things were predictably wild with the addition of Zombie-loving Carrie Ryan, who we adore. But that’s what makes the Smart Chicks Tour so much fun — we LOVE the authors we’re touring with. Some of us were already close, but we also love all the new Chicks we’ve met.

It’s like one big party every time we hang out, whether we’re eating lunch or shopping for steampunk jewelry, talking about writing or changing hotels because of suspiciously wet carpet. These women are funny and smart and talented, and they have become our friends.

The feedback we are getting from readers is also incredible. Not only are hundreds of people coming out for the events, but some are driving 8-10 hours to make it to a stop. As one reader said, “How often can you see this many of your favorite authors at one bookstore?”

We’ve been thinking the same thing.

Smart Chicks Tour at Vroman’s – Pasadena, CA

Everyone knows how much we love Vroman’s! It’s our home turf, but all the Smart Chicks felt right at home. We hung out with the adorable Chandra Rooney, from Indigo Chapters; compared boots; attempted to incite a peaceful-book-loving riot at our first outdoor venue; gave away LOTS of stuff & signed some skin (details below). There were over 350 people by the end of the night, and we closed down the store. For every picture we show you, there are ten shots we missed — usually the ones involving us shopping for “baby heads” (not real ones) at Gold Bug, eating lunch in our pajamas, or generally behaving badly (PG-13 of course).

This tour has been more fun than we could have imagined, and we will be so sad when it’s all over. But we have to run. We’re in Cincinnati, getting ready to wander around in  search of Starbucks! See you tonight Dayton!!

So if you are close to Dayton (or Cincinnati tomorrow night) and you want to meet some wild chicks (and wildly talented) & get your skin signed, win some COOL swag, or play “Marry, Shag, Cliff” — stop by and see us!

Jennifer, a fan of BEAUTIFUL CREATURES made her own version of Lena’s necklace which was so amazing!


Jake, aka “The Boy Who Wanted His Skin Signed” asked all the authors to sign his stomach and, of course, the Smart Chicks did just that. We swear this was not our idea, but we give readers what they want (and Mary Pearson started it)!
