Y’all, cool things are happening. Very cool things.
Well, the convention is coming up again!!! 4 weeks, guys! 0_0
What is prep looking like right now?
Book finishing up and releasing has been happening, for one.
Kate’s sequel to The Twin Arrows is groaning under her perfectionista’s attention; like, she’s at her desk working on it as I type this! (can you believe i haven’t read it yet i feel like such a bad citizen. i need to read it now.)
Tanner’s superhero sequel is now available in paperback! (it’s wonderfully fat.)
Malachi’s mystery is out on Kindle and will soon be available as a little book! (i seriously can’t wait to see it!)
And who knows what other amazing works will get their debut on the table this year!!
Lots and lots of talking has been happening, for two.
Even while I was in Idaho I’d need to jump on my phone to catch up on the current conversation or question.
We’ve been discussing the possible future goal of expanding our group, figuring out how the group works in the nitty-gritty, designing a new website YAY, welcoming our 12th member 🎉👏👏, getting organized and ready for the upcoming crazy weekend…
aaand last night we had our first Board Meeting!!
During the hilarious never-ending jokes and fantastic comradery, we actually got a lot of useful stuff done and voted upon! 😀
And coffee and singing and pizza and bookstore roaming has been happening, for three.
Yes, you read that right. XD
We started out at the Enroute coffee shop (my sibs and I got there right before it closed. OOPS.) then half of us crammed into Paul’s car and the other half jumped into Tanner’s minivan…
aand we got kinda lost in a random parking lot and sang songs and laughed until we couldn’t breathe and called Tanner’s contingent to come find us, and then all walked into Panera Bread for the rest of our rowdy meeting. lol (I think we’d had too much coffee maybe.)
Meeting locations that were kicked around:
- A tailgate party, a little too warm and dark out
- Olive Garden, buy water and leave a tip 😛
- Goodwill, nice assortment of couches
Two hours later we adjourned the meeting, and those of us who could still hang out moved on to old movies, feminism, and pizza plans.
So then pizza. Yum.
After that, we crossed the parking lot to Barnes & Nobles on a whim and had way too much fun wandering around in there for the bit of time before they closed!!! Also “If You Give A Moose A Muffin” can be such a scary kids book if you read it right.
It was a really super evening with really super people. ❤ I can’t wait to have a meeting with ALL the members once it gets closer to the convention and ultimately hang out with everyone AT the convention!!
This bunch of people, guys, is irreplaceable. And stronger together. And going places.
Here’s to another great year of Generation Rising!!
