San Francisco Meet-Up, Jan 20th at Borderlands!


Hey everyone!

If you're in the Bay Area, please come join me and Tom at Borderlands Books on January 20th at 5pm. We'll be reading selections from the Anthology, discussing the current book pick (TBD), and then heading across the street for adult libations afterwards!

The event is free, but we'll have plenty of copies of the February book pick on hand to purchase. Plus, Borderlands is awesome, and you won't be able to leave the store empty-handed! 

If you plan on attending, please RSVP on the Goodreads event page! Hope to see you there!


International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club!

Hey ladies! If you've been looking for more geeky-inclined female friends, check out the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club. Here's how it works:

This is a new project for us and we are figuring it out as we go along. We are just two nerdy dames reaching out into the vast, tangled web to see if we can find some new friends and help others find new friends too. The basic idea is you fill the form in, then we will collate everyone's info and we then we'll match you up with someone in the same age range with similar interests to you. Then you can swap addresses and get putting pens to paper!

Sounds like fun! Sign-up is open through April 1st, so get to it!
