I’m heading to Phoenix on Monday and hope you’ll join my daughter and me — and possibly some bloggers to be named later — at a casual meet-up on Saturday, Jan. 23.
I’ll be in town to visit my daughter, who blogs at I Pick Up Pennies. Abby and I will hold forth from approximately 1 to 4 p.m. at the Wendy’s restaurant (see “casual,” above) near her home. We’ve staged meet-ups there in the past and it’s been quite pleasant. Management doesn’t seem to mind if we loiter and talk.
And talk. And talk.
Previous confabs have been happily gregarious, with wide-ranging topics (writing, money, midlife, French fries). I do hope you’ll be able to join us.
It’ll be two bloggers, no waiting – unless it winds up being three or more bloggers. I’m extending the invitation to several Phoenix-area writers, so you may wind up meeting someone you’ve read.
(Or discovering a new blog to follow. Win!)
Bonus: I will be giving away some fabulous prizes, including a $5 Starbucks gift certificate and a deck of “Tundra” playing cards. Just a little thank-you for taking the time, and the gasoline, to get there.
(Given the reaction to previous “Tundra” book and calendar giveaways, Chad Carpenter has quite a few fans out there. Maybe I should bring two decks.)
The Wendy’s is at 2640 W. Thunderbird. It shares a parking lot with a Home Depot store. Hope to see you there.
