Oh the People We Meet

My friend, Lani Woodland, author of Intrinsical, is planning a release party for her newest book, Indelible. During the preparation, she somehow found out about a very special group who is planning to attend.

The book club / knitting group, the Naked Knitters, are part of a nearby nudist colony, and have clearly taken an interest in Lani’s series. This is a good thing, as all readers are important to our careers as authors. Luckily, they have promised to come clothed to the event.

*sighs in relief for Lani*

It’s times like this I wonder what is this dangerous, fantabulous, amazingthing career I’ve gotten into that my friends and I are so privileged to meet such interesting people?

Have you ever encountered wonderfully unusual people at a signing or other bookish event? I’d love to hear your story.

Not yet. ;)

That's too funny. I'm glad they'll be clothed. I am hoping to meet some interesting people soon!

I'm going to spend all weekend wondering what it is that nudist knit. Doilies?

Not quite that unusual, but I think just getting a chance to meet people you've come to know online in real life can make for some interesting times :)
