Thanks to several generous folks in response to my This Little Whedonista effort, as well as a well-timed direct deposit from one of my writerly employers, I WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE IT TO GEEK GIRL CON! I can barely contain my excitement.

Why? Well, lemme see:

1) I’ll be crashing with the fabulous Cunning Minx, and apparently, there may be a brownie and porn party if I time my arrival just so.

2) I’ll be doing a signing for Whedonistas along with with JANE ESPENSON, NANCY HOLDER, and  MARIAH HUEHNER at the University Book Store table (Booth  308-309) Saturday, October 8th – 10:30-11:30AM! Come on by, grab a copy of this fabulous collection of Whedon-related essays, and have a chat with us!

3) I’ll be moderating a Whedonistas panel that same day from 5;30-6:30PM with JANE ESPENSON, NANCY HOLDER, and MARIAH HUEHNER. There will be talk of Whedon (natch), as well as the Whedonistas reading short excerpts from their pieces in the book, plus some Q&A, and some Whedon Trivia, where you might be able to walk away with a free copy of Whedonistas (and perhaps some other prizes!). Do you love Joss Whedon? (and really, how could you not?) Think you know everything about the man and his work? Put your knowledge to the test at the Whedonistas panel at Geek Girl Con!

4) My Geek Girl Traveler self will be staying in Seattle for the week following Geek Girl Con as I explore the city for geeky hotspots! It’s my first time in the city, and I’m looking forward to it! If you have suggestions for geeky Seattle locales I shouldn’t miss, email them to me at geekgirltraveler[at]gmail[dot]com!

I would like to take a moment to thank Angela VonSchmittou, Ken Rokos, Matt Curry, Olga Branson, Robert Ropars, and Jade Takakuwa for their generosity in response to my. I will be sending you your copies of On the Ground Floor and/or your autographed copies of Whedonistas once I return from the con.

If you haven’t yet purchased a copy of On the Ground Floor and/or you’d like me to get you an autographed copy of Whedonistas while I’m at the con, the terms of my This Little Whedonista plea will continue to stand through October 5th! Get me thine orders!

And I’ll see you in Seattle! 🙂
