Kelly H. (Maybedog) (maybedog) | 32 comments And several of my favorite authors are coming! Although, I may have to yell at Andrea Speed after I kneel before her feet. ;) She made me cry and I was upset for days. Just kidding. I'll pretend I'm not upset as I'm kissing her toes.

Now I've got to go read something from all of these authors so I can make appropriate worshiping noises when I get their autographs.

I know! So much to read. :D We're planning on building a reading challenge/game starting in June to give people lots of chances to prepare. ;)

Paul | 30 comments Wow! Several of my favorite authors are coming. Just finishing up Too Stupid To Live and can't wait to shake Anne Tenino's hand :) And just added SO many books to my TBR list!!

Anne is every sort of awesome. As are PD Singer and Angela Benedetti. Seriously, lunch with them this weekend was awesome!

Yeah, I'm super psyched to meet everyone. (We have a lot of great writers in the Northwest! Maybe it's the weather? Or the caffeine? The microbrews? The many tattoo parlors?)

My personal mental goal is to not scare any of the attendees. Like, Remember: Don't go up to Ginn Hale and yell, "GIMME BOOK! I WANTS IT! NOM NOM NOM!" Don't do that. Act like a sane person.

Small goals. That, and try not to bug Blind Eye too much about a sequel to Irregulars. (Even though a sequel would be SOOOOOOO AWESOOOOME...)

Andrea (andreaspeed) | 49 comments I think I'd better bring a lot of Kleenex. The amount of people who say I've made them cry ... I'm like the human equivalent of an onion.

That sounds like it might be a good question for a panel. "The After effects of making your fans REALLY CRY." Hmmmm....

(My guess is people will be more psyched than weepy to see you. At least we can distract any heavy sobbers with some later Infected books. "Look! Four more books!")


message 11: by Andrea (new)

Andrea (andreaspeed) | 49 comments I hope so. Also, I might be trying way too hard to make everyone laugh. I don't know if that works for or against me.

Add me to the list of sobbing messes. Thanks for that. Every time I think of that book I get misty eyed.

Andrea (andreaspeed) | 49 comments Aww. I'm think i should get a name tag and just write "I'm sorry" on it. I wonder if people will guess.

Lou Sylvre | 11 comments I'm just now getting to visit here after my crazy post-release blitz for Finding Jackie (actually I think this is just a breather), but want to say I am just amazed how many authors that I really admire are in this area. It's going to be fantastic to meet authors and readers both! I am so looking forward to Septempber!

Looking forward to meeting everyone- I just wrote a Portland story and posted it on my blog here at Goodreads- Mari Moto's Magical Dragon- if you want a quickie!

GRNW welcomes aboard Talya Andor as an Attending Author for the Meet-Up on Sept. 14! Welcome, Talya!

(And, wow! It's amazing how many M/M authors are in the PNW! I chock it up to the copious amounts of coffee here. And maybe those few gray days that encourage people to stay in and write...) :)


Kelly H. (Maybedog) (maybedog) | 32 comments Did you know that Seattle has the second highest per capita number of gay people in the US? We're just ultra cool. :)

Nah, I think we will be having too much fun. :D So many people in one room who are okay with talking about Gay Romance. I've never experienced that, so I can barely imagine. (Can't wait!)
