Hello all! I am just flabbergasted by how quickly the time has gone. Two weeks from today until GRL officially kicks off. Where did the time ago? So much to do, to prepare. I'm still boxing up swag. Then there's packing, deciding what shoes to leave behind. I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting new folks.
For those attending, this year the fabulous Guidebook app is back. You'll be able to find my name under the list of Registered Authors in the GRL 2015 Guide and it will list all my sessions and events in case you'd like to add them to your schedule. These are my events along with a few others I plan to attend. There a few more, but I likely won't know where else I'll be until closer to the event.
- Wednesday Oct 14th: 7.00 pm to 10 pm - Pre-Retreat Meet & Greet (Mission Ballroom A & B)
- Thursday Oct 15th: 3.50 pm to 4.45 pm – Featured Author Spotlight (Author Q&A) Charlie Cochet, Rhys Ford, and Lisa Henry (Mission Ballroom A).
- Thursday Oct 15th: 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm – Dine-With-An-Author Opening Night Event (Bahia Beach & Patio). For those who are interested in sitting at the table I've been assigned, there should be a number on every registered authors' name badge to let folks know which table we'll be seated at.
- Friday Oct 16th: 12.35 pm to 1.20 pm – Author Lounge (A Session) (Mission Ballroom D & E).
- Friday Oct 16th: 4.00 pm to 5.30 pm – GRL Fun & Craft Fair Session One: Filthy Stinking Liars! Mission Ballroom A & B
- Saturday Oct 17th: 12.30 pm to 3 pm – Featured Author Booksigning Event (Del Mar Room).
- Saturday Oct 17th: 9 pm to 1 am - Hooray for Hollywood Costume Party (Mission Ballroom ABC)
Now onto the swag!
I'll have lots of nifty THIRDS swag, different items in different places.
Here's some of the swag I'll be giving away:
So what swag is going to be where?
The SWAG room:
- Destructive Delta tote bags.
- Scented gummy bear highlighters.
- THIRDS Dex & Sloane jaguar bookmarks (not pictured above).
- Roaring lion head temporary tattoos (Thank you, Venona!)
- And these rack cards with the whole team!
Author Lounge & Booksigning Event:
- Both sets of character collector cards (pictured in first image. Quantities are limited).
- Charm bracelets (there are actually more than the ones pictures above). We have one for each of the guys: Dex, Sloane, Ash, Cael, Calvin, Ethan, Seb, and Hudson. These are very limited. Roughly 50 of each so we'll have to keep it to one per reader. I know it'll be tough to choose.
- THIRDS Dex & Sloane jaguar bookmarks (they look like the banner below).
- THIRDS Nerds GRL 2015 San Diego buttons.
Also, providing he gets to GRL in one piece, there's going to be a Dex pop up banner!! I'm super excited with how it turned out. It was created with readers in mind and done so that--depending on your height--you can take a picture with Dex. If you're just the right height, you can stand in front of his hand and he'll give you bunny ears. I couldn't resist. Here's what the banner looks like (it's not as dark in print form, so you should be able to see Sloane nicely):
I'm not sure where he'll be yet. If the banner and all its pieces make it okay to San Diego, I'll be finding a spot for him after I arrive.
Aaand if that wasn't nerdy enough, you'll find these guys at the Author Lounge and my signing table. Don't judge me. LOL
Can't wait to see you there! <3
