Ta Da -- Stuff is Here!
First up, several of you have been asking, nay suggesting (okay, demanding) something, insinuating that you would like to have something to show your love of certain things from "Touched by an Alien". We at Team Gini thought long and hard and decided giving in to your demands was probably the way to go. (Because our motto is: The Alien Collective is Always Right.)
So...check it out! The Alien Collective Depot is here! Browse the merchandise, find your favorites, and yes, trust me, we'll be adding new things as we go along. 'Cause we at Team Gini are really distracted by all the shiny options out there and are always going, "Oooooh, GOTTA have THAT."
What could possibly top the Depot? Well, The Galaxy Express is aware that there's going to be a lot of radio silence in the next couple of weeks, and not just from me. So, running concurrently with Comic-Con and RWA Nationals will be the Parallel Universe! Authors of SFR, yours truly included, will be posting articles, doing "panels" (and, spoken modestly, I think you'll love mine), and answering questions. It's going to be an 11-day extravaganza you won't want to miss!
The Parallel Universe starts on Tuesday, July 20th. Lisa Paitz Spindler will kick it off in the morning and then...I'll be up that evening! You'll definitely want to catch my "Alien Diversity Panel", which will include and be run by...but there...don't want to tell you too much. It'll spoil the surprise. Suffice to say, members of the Alien Collective will enjoy it tremendously. And I'm hoping to drop in, certainly on the 20th, and as I can thereafter, to answer questions, etc. So a fun time should be had by all!
The full Parallel Universe schedule should be posted at The Galaxy Express this Thursday, so be sure to check it out and mark your calendars!
There's more to come, but it'll wait until tomorrow. Until then, I'm back to editing "Alien in the Family", reminding peeps to pre-order "Alien Tango", and trying desperately to decide what to pack (or, in my case, what to leave behind) for Comic-Con (where I'm going as a professional! Yeah...really...admit it...you KNEW it was coming). And y'all go on with being your own wonderful bad selves and I'll catch you on the flip side!
