I’m all over the place!
For example, this weekend I’ll be doing a signing with Gail Carriger and Jaye Wells, in Houston. We Orbiteers are all VERY proud of Gail, who just made it on the NYTimes bestseller list! YAY Gail! She is fabulous, her book is fabulous, and I am so very very happy for her.
So I’m looking forward to seeing both Gail and Jaye again. But my friend, ML the Economist, and I are also making Houston into a Weekend du Girlie Thangs. We’re staying from Friday to Sunday at a posh hotel and shopping, shopping, shopping. After all, I need new clothes . . .
For Romantic Times! Yes, that following weekend, I will be wandering around the RT Convention, probably smirking at cover models and dodging my fellow Leaguer’s attempts to haze me. I was too late and unorganized (this is my first RT, I had no idea what I was doing) to get on any panels, BUT I do have some things scheduled. I’m definitely doing Club RT, Thursday at 11:00AM, with an absolute shit ton of other members of the League.* Â I’ll also be doing the “Giant Book Fair” (I’m not sure if that means the books are giant, giants are involved, or if it’s merely a large signing) on Saturday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Realistically five people will know who I am, so please please please come see me and put me out of my misery. Bring me a Guinness or a cookie. Better yet, bring both.
At RT, we at the League have some AWESOME shenanigans planned for our fans, so definitely stay tuned if you’re coming to RT. Let’s just say we at the League of Reluctant Adults control the gateway to fun . . . if by fun you mean a pint of snark served with a sidecar of sass and finished with a twist of naughty.
I should also hopefully have some VERY cool swag for RT. Vampire heart removable tattoo, anyone? I just ordered them, though, so I’m not sure if they”ll be delivered in time . . .
And yet, no matter what, I know the hearts will be ready by the time RomConvention rolls around! That’s in Denver, in July, and as yet I have no idea what I’m doing. Mostly because it’s creeping up to finals time and I don’t even remember who I am anymore. But I do know where to locate my red pens and my current stack o’ grading. But I can tell you that the lovely Carolyn Crane and Jeanne Stein are cooking up some trouble, and we’ll definitely be partaking in some larger, non-con ridiculousness around that time with Team Denver, so stay tuned.
At some point I’m also going to be in London, and in Brighton, and in Seattle and San Francisco . . . and I’m sure some other places. The feet are itchy, people, and the passport is new and shiny.
So if you’re in one of those places, and own a bookstore or have a book club, I’d be happy to make an appearance. I also do weddings and bar mitzvahs.
And stay tuned. I’ll be back to my more regular blogging, now that I’ve carved out a little wiggle room in my schedule. Mmmm. Wiggle room.
Ciao for now!
