So, guess what?!?!?!?!?!? You’ll never guess!!!

O.K., I guess I can tell you.

I got to talk with Tee Morris for almost 2 hours on Sunday (3/21)!!! Yes, that Tee Morris if you bother to read my blog at all.

Tee is working on a book for Que Publishing and somehow it came about that I get to be a consultant for the chapter on G1s (that’s gotta earn me #geekgirl points too, right)?

I was thrilled, and charmed, and surprised. Thrilled that he would even consider giving me his phone number (I promise not to stalk you, Tee), instead of over Skype. Charmed at how well he handled the interview, including getting me back on track when I’d go off on some tangent (like how talking to him was totally unlike when I met David Brin, though we didn’t talk about that). And surprised at how easily we had a conversation. Truly, it was more like a conversation than any sort of interview or brain picking. And he didn’t misquote me!

If you have no idea about Twitter, and want an intelligent, witty overview as well as reviews of all the ways you can tweet, I encourage you to get the book when it hits the shelves.

Yes, he’s just a guy. But a fun guy that I absolutely cannot wait to meet. Just to chat with, because we have stuff in common beyond the fact that he’s a fantasy writer and I read way more fantasy than I should. And now to make plans to get to Dragon*Con….

SQUEEEEE! that was fun! now I have to find a way to get to DragonCon -- not stalking @Teemonster, really, I'm not

Really, I’m not stalking him….

  1. SKEEEE! is RIGHT!

    I love when unexpected good surprises to me! I hope you are still riding on the good fortune,

    You say it best here:


    I'm feeling it, snd I'm only reading it!

  2. @sc_global thanks! It is some kind of high to talk to people that you admire.

  3. Awww....now I'm all kinds of blushing here, you know that.

    And hey, I don't mind stalkers, so long as you're not boiling bunny rabbits or doing any freaky stuff with sledgehammers and braces, I'm fine!!! :^p

    Thanks again for your help on the G1 section of All a Twitter. The book is still on track and I'm closing in on crunch time, so I need to get my writing butt in gear. The sooner I wrap of AAT, the sooner I get back to the fiction and the podcasting.

  4. Yeah, that first time talking to Morris is fun. The next thing you know he is getting you to carry books and meet people like Sigler. =p

  5. Watch yer step, Ballantine. I made you the Kiwi Superstar that you are! I can BREAK you just as easily...
