Omigosh! Kelley Armstrong is coming to MY area! This never happens (I live in Canada)!! Thank-you SO very much for pointing this out to me, RR!

Um, I e-mailed ALison for more info but an e-mail came back saying that it was a invalid address. Is there anywhere else I can get more details?

I will check on this for you, I copied the info from her website. Maybe there is another email addy??

If only they'd come to Houston...*tear, tear*

I figured it out. Alison's e-mail is only (according to Kelley's website) but the link includes "mailto:at" at the beginning which is the invalid part. Thanks anyways!

is she Canadian? I'm going to Toronto, but not until July. No one ever comes to Minnesota. Hope others will get to see her! :)

Ravenous Reader wrote: May 19, 2009 at 6:18 AM

I am not sure, why no California. I am a bit bummed. But I am going to DC and will see her there

Katie- She is Canadian.

Anyway, I'm going to RWA too, though only for the literacy signing. Maybe we'll see each other! :) But I won't be going to see Kelley or Melissa since I'll be seeing them in Richmond just a week or so after RWA. I'm so excited about meeting Kelley!! I've met Melissa twice before and am excited too, but not as excited as meeting Kelley, lol.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
