Hello all! Hope you had a lovely weekend. GRL is practically upon us and I've been running around like mad trying to get everything ready, as I imagine a good deal of other folks are doing. Of course, a lot of those folks probably have way more to prepare for than I do. This year, I'm going as a general attendee since the author spots were limited, but I didn't want to miss out on the opportunity to meet up with old friends and hopefully make plenty of new ones, not to mention attend all the fab events (I've got my costume for the Heaven and Hell Masquerade Ball all set!).
Since I'm going as a general attendee, I haven't had to worry about swag, but that doesn't mean I won't have some exclusive, special goodies to give away! I'm taking part in the Rainbow Romance Writers scrapbooking event since I'm now a member, and we've been told we can bring some swag to give out at this time, so I'll have swag on me you won't be able to get anywhere else at GRL. There will be a limited amount, since I'll be carrying them with me, and I wan to respect the rules.
Authors going as registered attendees are asked not to go around promoting themselves, which is understandable and okay with me since I'm still shy when it comes to actively talking about myself as an author and my books, but folks are encouraged to chat, so if anyone fancies coming up to me to chat, say hello, or ask a question, please do! If you don't know what I look like, just check out my facebook page and you'll see my picture on there. Chances are I'll have a flower in my hair, be dressed in either polka dots, sugar skulls, or something equally geeky.
Speaking of swag, I have some fun and exciting bits coming soon as I've been preparing for the release of The Impetuous Afflictions of Jonathan Wolfe. No release date yet, but we're getting close. More to come on that this week!
