technocracygirl: Alexander Siddig from <i>Kingdom of Heaven</i> (Gorgeous)
So there are some events going on in the next few weeks that I am pondering doing, and I wanted to know if you wanted to join me. (You being peoples who live in the Seattle area and are interested in this stuff.

1) Seth Grahme-Smith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will be at the U Bookstore on Saturday, June 13th at 4 pm. I am of two minds on this. On one hand, I really like Pride and Prejudice, and I like the idea of a mash-up, Creative Commons type of novel. On the other hand, I really dislike zombies. If this had been Pride and Prejudice and Werewolves or Pride and Prejudice and Ninjas? All over it. But it's zombies, which I really just don't like. However, if I know that other people are planning on going, that's a different ball of wax. (And if we're gaming that day, well, if superheroes beat China Mieville, superheroes beat zombies. A lot.)

2) Jillian Venters of Gothic Charm School fame has a book. And it is launching at the U Village B&N on June 23rd at 7:30 pm. Not necessarily my full cup of tea, but [personal profile] trilliumgrl expects it to be gothy and interesting, so I shall finangle an outfit together. (Probably involving my wedding corset as a) it's gorgeous and b) I can sit down in it.) Anyone else interested?

3) SJ Tucker is back in town! EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

She has a concert in Seattle on July 17th, 7 pm, for Can't Stop the Serenity. Then there's the Tricky Pixie CD Release Party in Kenmore on July 23rd. And another concert in Everett on July 25th. And I will be there, oh yes I will. We're definitely going to the TP concert, and I may hare off by myself for the other two because Sooj is MADE OF AWESOME. If you're wondering why the heck I'm obsessed, go here and listen. Especially to "We Are Shangri-La," but "Casimira" and the rest are good too. She is good. Even more so in concert.

(And if you're in Cali -- [profile] __fullofgrace__, I'm looking at you -- SJ and Betsy will be performing at Seanan McGuire's book release parties in Santa Clara, San Francisco, and Berkeley.)

So, anyone interested?
