Alaska-bound!  

For a brief and shining moment today, our highest-limit credit card was paid off.

Then I bought plane tickets to Alaska.

We’ll be in Fairbanks from the 20th-29th of November, and we hope we’ll see a bunch of people there! I’m going to try to arrange a book signing at Barnes & Noble, so I’ll let people know about that.

We will THEN be in Anchorage for two nights! November 30th and Dec 1st. I am also going to try to arrange a signing at B&N there for one of those nights, and I would like very very much to manage a get-together of some kind with as many people as possible the other night, or possibly before/after the signing, or whatever–not much time, so we want to do as much visiting as possible. :)

And THEN we will be in Seattle ONE NIGHT ONLY, Wednesday Dec 2nd…and I hope to arrange a book signing at the University Book Store. (It might be too late, given how busy they always are, but I can try!) If that falls through, well, we’ll still want to see people, so we’ll try to arrange dinner, and possibly a lunch meet-up of some kind on the 4th, which is the day we fly out.

More details as they emerge. :)

Yaaaayyy! Good for you guys! :)

. . . you should try and get a picture of you and THUNDERBIRD FALLS at, y'know, Thunderbird Falls. ;P

In *December*!? :)

You're Alaskan. That makes you Hard Core by default. *snicker*

(No? Maybe just by the sign then?)
kitmizkit on October 3rd, 2009 04:01 pm (UTC)
Hard Core is not the same as Dumb Ass. :)

I doubt we'll get out that way. We will have v. limited time, after all, and we must eat at Bear Tooth and Tommy's and Aladdin's and Gwennie's, which will take a lot of our time. :) But I promise next time I'm in Alaska in the summer I'll get a picture of me, the book, and its namesake waterfall. :)

*laaaaauuuuuughs*

I've had the goal, the last two times I've been up there, to take a pic of TF next to the falls, but somehow I've never been able to dig up my copy of TF.

Tommy's isn't as good as it used to be--I understand from N that it has changed ownership--and I've never been a huge fan of Gwennie's, but Bear Tooth is still awesome and Aladdin's is wonderful as always. (K&N had their wedding rehearsal dinner there and are friends with the owners.)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Gwennie's is mostly about the chocolate milkshake with breakfast, for me. :)

It's still good--very, very good--but a little something has changed just a tad, I think. N would be able to go into more detail, however.

MINE!

*ahem*

that would be worth the drive to Seattle, plus seeing Duane in action.
kitmizkit on October 4th, 2009 04:56 am (UTC)
Is Duane not just one of the best human beings ever? :)
martianmooncrabmartianmooncrab on October 4th, 2009 05:01 am (UTC)
I met Duane through Annie Scarborough years ago, and he is just the best person ever!
kitmizkit on October 4th, 2009 05:03 am (UTC)
I met him the week my first book came out. :) Harlequin sent me to Seattle to do some promotional stuff, and I had, like, a DRIVER and a PUBLICIST and they brought me over to meet Duane and sign books at the UBS, and he had a ton of questions about the Luna line, and amusingly, the publicist didn't know any of the answers but I knew all of them because I was on a mailing list with the other Luna writers, so he and I hit it off really well while the publicist (who was a darling) was sort of like "...I need to be on that mailing list Catie's on..." :)

Annie Scarborough is also a lovely person, though I doubt she'd remember me. :)
martianmooncrabmartianmooncrab on October 4th, 2009 02:45 pm (UTC)
Miss Annie remembers you, in fact, I tried to snaffle her advance copy of Thunderbird Falls from her and she smacked my little paws over it.
kitmizkit on October 4th, 2009 04:10 pm (UTC)
Oh! *laughs* Well, if you see her sometime, pass on my greetings. She was very encouraging to me, nigh unto twenty years ago. :)
Michellesilkblade on October 3rd, 2009 04:25 pm (UTC)
Hey! I have the 4th off, not the 2nd or 3rd though. You should totally let me know what's going on with that.
Ellen Millionellenmillion on October 3rd, 2009 04:55 pm (UTC)
Ack! I'm leaving for Portland on the 21st - hopefully we can meet up on the 20th!
kitmizkit on October 4th, 2009 05:05 am (UTC)
Ack! Oh dear. I guess we'll have to try, though we might be incoherent. :)

That's fabulous! Have a great time.

*flails* Ah dangit, I just got back from Fairbanks and can't manage another trip this soon. :) I have already e-mailed my mom to inform her of potential signing and her task to go get books signed for me.

Have a great time in Alaska!
Anna the Piperannathepiper on October 4th, 2009 03:26 am (UTC)
Whoa, a Kit in Seattle? Guess I'll have to show up for that book signing then! :)
kitmizkit on October 4th, 2009 05:06 am (UTC)
I've emailed Duane! If I don't hear back from him within a few days I may have to send Seattle people over to talk to him for me in person. :)
Anna the Piperannathepiper on October 4th, 2009 07:50 pm (UTC)
I would be happy to do so if you need someone to do that for you. Let me know. :)
Sionainnsionainn on October 4th, 2009 01:05 pm (UTC)
I will keep my ears/eyes open for the signing!
Sionainnsionainn on October 4th, 2009 01:06 pm (UTC)
P.S. Kevin & I just met xpioti in our travels to Baltimore last week and we spoke of you. :-)

Keep us posted about Anchorage!
