above&beyondpics

one of the worst things is knowing that little mix has all of these creative ideas or different single choices,etc. and all their team does is hold them back from doing what they want so they end up doing things “subpar” to what they originally intended to do

AHH, the Stars Above tour is over, so here are some photos from some of the stops :D @ms-digne was in WA, @kat-adara (me) and @empyrean-rain (left) were in OR, @aceofstars16 was in TX, @mf-islands was in OH, @avidreader821 and @thelunar-ckswctwj were in PA and @prncesselene was in FL! This turned out so fantastic, that I might do something like this again, either for TLC or other fandoms ;) If so I’ll most likely post info on twitter @fanartcollab

So, last night I was lucky enough to get to go see Marissa Meyer on her Stars Above tour in Miami and get her to sign my books! She was super sweet and it was a pretty intimate venue so it felt very nice and personal; they had about 15 raffles at the end and they gave away portraits that a worker at Books & Books had done of the girls (Cinder and Cress are pictured above but Winter and Scarlet were raffled away before I could take a picture).  I was also able to give her the last set of squares for the Fanart Collab project @kat-adara set up and she was super excited to be receiving them (pics 2-4)!
