September, join me and some other cool authors in New Mexico!

Hey, there peeperinos!

This September, I’m going to be involved with an event outside Albuquerque, New Mexico. An author extravaganza/BBQ/reading/hanging out with readers kinda thing.

When: Saturday, September 14, 2013, 2-4 PM
Where: Pine Flats Picnic Area, Highway 14 south of Tijeras, NM (don’t worry, we’ll be helping you out on how to get there and all that good stuff–it’s about 20 miles from Albuquerque)
Who: Andi Marquette (that’s me), Lynn Ames, Karen Badger, Barrett, Bett Reece Johnson, Nat Burns
Other: yes, we’ll be selling print copies of our books and yes, we’ll have burgers n’ hotdogs n’ veggie burgers and like that.

More info: Western Women Writers (of NM) Facebook page.

And here’s a flyer (.pdf) for your viewing pleasure!

We’ll be providing more info at the FB page, including some suggestions about places to stay in Albuquerque, things to do, and maps to the event. It’s not that far, but you will need a car.

Don’t flip out. Tijeras is 14 miles from Albuquerque. The picnic area is about 6 miles south of Tijeras.

Stay tuned! I’ll be posting info here, as well, and at Women and Words.

Next Big Thing Blog Hop!

Hey, kids —

So there’s this thing going on where if you’re tagged by another writer, then you do a blog that answers the questions they did on theirs. Then you tag somebody to keep it going. So it’s kind of like a chain letter, only not. Because if you choose not to do a blog, well, you’re not going to cause somebody to lose a million bucks and you won’t break the mysterious ju-ju of the chain letter and cause small animals to cry or whatever the hell. Instead, you might miss out on an opportunity to chit-chat about yourself and your work.

Anyway, I was tagged by author Cheyne Curry (you can see her answers on her blog). So let’s go check out these questions, which I may or may not answer correctly. And I’ve re-worded a few questions for ease of grammatical flow.

So clickie on to see.
