I am heading to GRL 2017 (GayRomLit) in Denver in a couple of weeks. Well, not really Denver. Eventually Denver. We’re going to start off driving from San Diego — did I mention this was a road trip to Denver? — stop in Vegas for a few days, then do hops to the Grand Canyon and Durango then through Colorado Springs to arrive at the event’s hotel.
I haven’t made this trip in decades. Actually, I haven’t made this particular trip ever but have done pieces and parts of it so this reiteration isn’t too bad. Funnily enough, it does follow a lot of where Mad Lizard Mambo happened so that’ll be interesting. Just like it’s always amusing in my brain space to drive up to LA because I go through Kai’s Pendle run there.
Speaking of Pendle runs, as many of you know my schedule shifts and changes depend upon what I can get my brain to write. I do about four books a year and this year I actually got very sick for a long time so books got shuffled and deadlines moved around a little bit. But we do have a schedule for next year and a new one for upcoming releases.
Which I will release in a couple of weeks because I want to make sure I have all of my ducks in a row before I do that.
I also just realized I haven’t made coffee yet. So I’m going to do that in a little bit. The dog however requested I scratch his back.
If you are going to be at GRL, please be sure to visit near the bar area on Friday, October 20 at 6 PM where Jordan L Hawk and I will be holding a reader event. Even if you are not attending the retreat, you are more than welcome to join us. It is at the Marriott Denver Tech at 4900 S. Syracuse. I have a bunch of stuff just throw it people for the event and I think so does Jordan. I am waiting for one more piece of swag and then I will post a picture of everything that will be given away. I will be trying to make available the things to send to readers following the event because I know not everybody can go.
I will also be in Indianapolis second week of November — around the fifteenth. We are going to see if can get a group together to have coffee with and to chat about books so as soon as I know something about that I will post it here.
But right now I really need coffee.
P.S. Happy national coffee day.
