So, I had the opportunity to catch the end of Margie Stohl and Kami Garcia's world tour to promote their newest release in the Beautiful Creatures series, BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS.
Margie and Kami were personable, funny, and kept the crowd (the real people as well as the blog tv audience) thoroughly entertained.
Writer Peep Emily Wing Smith acted as interviewer, and then I was called up to moderate the lightning round of questions.
Apparently, the physical requirements for the job were to stand there, looking awkward, and let me just say I did my job well.

Margie and Kami chose well, because I majored in Awkward and minored in Bumbling. (Incidentally, these were the suggestions from my career counselor in High School. I'll never be able to thank her enough.)
Congratulations to Margie and Kami. They are two of the nicest, most down-to-earth people I know, despite Kami's strange fixation with murdering her characters and Margie's habit of breaking out into song at any given moment.

If you ever get a chance to meet them in person, go. Now. Or when the actual event takes place.
What are y'all doing this weekend?
