And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!  So I think you and I should hang out at this event. No seriously!  We totally should.  I think it’s going to be a lot of fun and it’s in Philly!  I’ve never been to Philly have you?  No?  Well, then even more of a reason why you need to attend.  For more info or to register *wiggles eyebrows* visit the Authors After Dark 2011 website and/or blog.

Can’t wait to see you guys there!  (I’m practicing law of attraction.  If I put it out into the universe it’ll happen.  No, I’m not crazy!  I swear it works!)


  1. I have this unexplainable urge to purchase a ticket to Philadelphia . If I could justify a cross-country trip to play Guess the Book from the Sex Scene, I so would!!!

    Have fun, snookums.

  2. LOL! Mwuahaha...it's working! Just so happens I can justify practically anything. Who do I need to convince. You know this would be solely a research trip, right? *wink*

  3. Oh oh oh!!! *jumps up and down*

    I still need to register :)

    Thanks for the list, Roomie!

  4. Love your blog! Stop by mine and say hi if you get a chance!

  5. @Jen - No problemo roomie!

    @Kristin - Thanks Kristin. I'm diggin' your avatar. I'll make sure to stop by.

  6. I am incredibly jealous that you are attending AAD, especially after seeing the panels list. If only it was closer to Tucson...

  7. I would totally kidnap you so you could come with me. You just say the word. ;)
