#GayRomLit – My Schedule, Etc.

GRL Retreat 2017 Badge Featured Author

My schedule so far leading up to GRL as well as at the event is:

Before GRL


  • Wed. Oct. 18, 2017 @ 3:00 p.m. — Newbie Orientation — I’m going to try very hard to arrive in time to attend this (I wanna get one of those GRL virgin cherry stickers! 😉).
  • Thurs., Oct. 19, 2017 @ 12:30 p.m. – 12:45 p.m. — Spotlight: Author Reading (I haven’t decided what I’ll read yet.)
  • Thurs., Oct. 19, 2017 @ 3:00 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. — Author Lounge at Evergreen Foyer
  • Fri., Oct. 20, 2017 @ 10:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. — Author Lounge at Evergreen Foyer

My understanding is that the author lounge time is when I’ll be available for signing books and handing out swag. Speaking of swag, I need to get busy ordering that kind of stuff!

I managed to secure a spot on the Indie Pub Authors’ table where I’ll have books for sale throughout the retreat. Apparently, unless an author’s publisher(s) has a sale table or they’ve secured a coveted spot on the indie table, they can only sell books during their Author Lounge times.

My current GRL-related to-do list includes:

  • Sign up for the special event sales tax, so I’ll be able to sell books at the event.
  • Have someone with more skills than me design what’ll go on my swag.
  • Order swag.
  • Book flight or reserve a rental car (9 hour drive) (hotel was done when I signed up for GRL so I got a room in the reserved block).

If I’m missing anything critical (I’m a total newbie) or you have any suggestions, please leave your suggestions!

These are the paperbacks I’ll have with me to sell/sign at the event (you can preorder using the link, above, so you don’t risk missing out!):
