My woman just Mapquested it, and told me the drive is quite a bit less than I originally thought!

Still a long way, and I actually thought she was joking or something, but she insists it's worth the trip so I'm jazzed that it isn't as far as I thought.

Looking forward to meeting the man behind the name I've felt, since I've seen it here, has the most authorly name I've seen - Gordon Highland. I mean, some names just don't sound literary, but his just screams, "That's right, I'm an author, bitches."

Oh, yours is pretty too, Brandon. *tossles Brandon's hair*

It promises to be a lot of fun!  I'm really excited!!!!!!!

Make sure you (and anyone else who wants to go) RSVP on the event page so we can add you to the list.

Done and done.

How many people are already slated to come? (The number will be directly proportional to the number of pills needed for me to tolerate large groups in confined spaces with my usual good nature and aplomb.)

We have about 20 definite spots filled right now.  We have enough room for 50, which is why we're keeping track.

Even 20 in staggering considering how far flung the membership is on a site like this. Not to mention, I imagine there will also be non-Reactors frequenting the establishment - unless you've rented out the entire thing.

We have our own room for the reading itself, but yeah, the main place and all will be open to the public. 

Be sure to buy your drinks and food in our special area (I honestly can think of no better word)...because we have a minimum to meet.  :D

Neither of us drink alcohol, but we'd probably buy a few just to pitch in if there are any volunteers to drink up what we order.

They'll serve the full menu as well, so if nothing else you can have some food stuffs!

Photon-- hope all is well.

 

Just a reminder, last week we had David James Keaton on the show, he'll be reading at this event and it was one of our craziest/funniest episodes yet. This week we're interviewing LitReactor's own Brandon Tietz, who will also be reading in St. Louis. Definitely want to tune in for the "preview" of what's to come.

I just got the 24th off from work to recover. It's a six hour drive out there, so you guys best make it worth it.

I'm thinking about driving, too, because the flight costs from Toronto are really expensive. My other half is still uninterested in coming out and hanging out with a bunch of us writers in St.Louis. I can't imagine why this would be uninteresting to him. ;)

Just now saw this thread, a hazard of having the "Participated" tab be my LR bookmark.

Sexiness will abound. Drinks will be consumed. Plots/capers/shenanigans will be conceived and executed. I'm really looking forward to hanging with everyone, as Tietz and Keaton (sounds like a comedy duo, dunnit?) are the only ones I've shared oxygen with before. I'll be around starting Friday evening, leaving Sunday sometime.

I can't make it, so I shouldn't even be opening my pie hole, but I'm curious about the sausage:donut ratio here.

Two lady hosts!

On a serious note, though, we had a couple female readers in mind but scheduling didn't work out. One thing all the readers have in common is that they are local, and we have some semblance of personal access to them-- the list of women that fit those categories was ridiculously small, and sadly we couldn't make it work out.

We do try to have women as guests on the show as often as possible, but most of them have been over here on my coast, and not out there in the Midwest.

I'm immediately co-opting Drea's "sausage:donut" into my personal lexicon.

I swear, I asked a few women.  None of them were able to make it.  It was sad.  But what I'm saying is, I blame them.

If we're doing second-person, at least make it a "Choose your own adventure." Give me options!
