Want to know where I’ll be appearing in support of Geek Girls Unite? Glad you asked…

Nothing planned now, but if you’d like me to appear at your school, bookstore, or convention, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’ll show up to the opening of an envelope as long as there’s a willing audience and a couple snacks.

Dana Hall School (Wellesley, MA)

Thanks to one of my faithful Twitter followers (and friends) Katie, who wouldn’t give up before I made a special appearance in Boston, I’ll be toting my cookies to New England on Tuesday to talk all about writing to the lovely girls at Dana Hall. Watch out, Beantown. Here I come!

2 PM at the Javits Center (NYC)

If you happen to be wandering around New York Comic Con, come stop by the Harper Collins booth (#944) and I’ll sign your copy of Geek Girls Unite. I’ll also be handing out limited-edition GGU totes. You don’t want to miss out on this shoulder candy.

7 PM – 8:30 PM at the NYU Bookstore (NYC)

Come mingle with other geek girls and hear me read from Geek Girls Unite. I’ll also be doing a signing afterward so you’ll definitely want to stick around. ** UPDATE ** I’m pleased to announce that the amazingly talented Jenny Owen Youngs will be performing a couple songs for your listening enjoyment. Get there early and bring all your friends!!

4 PM at the JBL theater inside the EMP Museum (Seattle, WA)

Are you a fan of science fiction, fantasy, horror, action, gaming, science, anime, roller derby, cosplay, comic books, technology, B-movies, LARPing and video games? Then come by to the first-annual GeekGirlCon and hear me talk about my experiences at Alternative Press during the burgeoning emo scene. I saw all the blood, sweat, tears, and eyeliner that went into being a chart-topping success—and you might not ever hear these juicy stories again! Join me as I question why most of the emo girls are in front of the stage and not on it and why many girls aspire to be muses instead of musicians. Reserve your pass now and be a part of geek girl history! I’ll also be doing a signing on Oct. 9 at 3 PM at The University Book Store (Booth #308-309).
