Releasing the Research

Happy Tuesday! Yes, it's true! It's the official release day for Alien Research! I realize that half the world seems to have gotten this book early, but for those of you who haven't, today's the day!

Haven't gotten the book yet? Check out the PRR (Pre Review Ravings) at Bibliognome to tide you over. Or whet your appetite. Or both.

Team Gini swears that any pics you take of the bookie wookies in the wild will get up onto the Sightings page, and who are we to argue, especially since they've made it all pretty again? So, if you get some shots, please send them in! Speaking of the website, Free Stuff is updated, so check it out and see what new things you can get for, yes, free.

So, what will I be doing to celebrate Alien Research's release? I'll be getting a mammogram and a bone density test. (Because my life is just that kind of exciting.) But, honestly, the mammogram especially is an important test and I do one yearly (and this year's just happens to fall on release day). One of my BFFs didn't get one for years. Her husband spotted something -- and that something was very virulent breast cancer. She's a totally positive person and quite the fighter, and it looks like she's going to beat this. However, per her and her doctors, if she'd had regular screenings, this would have been caught before it was at the terrifying level. So, please, if you have the ta-tas, go get them squished for the safety of your health. And if you love someone with ta-tas, encourage them to get a yearly mammogram. Because losing even one Member of the Alien Collective is one member too many.

Medical stuff out of the way, this weekend and next week I'll be doing fun things, and seeing some of you at them!

--Saturday, December 7, Mysterious Galaxy San Diego, CA, Eat! Read! Party! Holiday Event, 3-5pm
--Sunday, December 8, Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach, CA, Holiday Party, 3-5pm
--Thursday, December 12, The Poisoned Pen, Scottsdale, AZ, Book Signing, 7-8:00pm

Hope everyone who celebrated had a wonderful Thanksgiving, is having a happy Hanukkah, that everyone had a great weekend, and that everyone has an even better week. See some of you in SoCal this coming weekend, and let's all be Alien Research readers out there! Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!

You must! You must! If you're anywhere near San Diego, Redondo Beach, or Scottsdale, come to my signings -- they're at bookstores! :-D (Sadly, I know you're nowhere near these areas, but hey, it's worth hoping that you're on vacation right now, nearby, right? LOL)
