Jennifer Ouellette on Allyson Beatrice. The author of The Physics of the Buffyverse reviews Will the Vampire People Please Leave the Lobby? in The Huffington Post.

Good review. However, shouldn't that be BDF? I always nick-pick:) Congratulations again, Allyson.
The more press Allyson gets the better. The book is certainly worth it. :)
I still can't wait to read this.

And interesting news about Nothing But Red, hadn't heard of that before.
UnpluggedCrazy, there was a front page link posted here on July 18 to the Nothing But Red site.
Yep... Nothing But Red actually opens for submissions this Wednesday. Info can be found here: Submissions -- Nothing But Red.

Props to Allyson -- I'm looking forward to checking out this book!
Thanks, guys. I did my first big reading today at Comic Con, and I have no idea how it went. I left the room before I could get sick, and all I could really hear was my heart pounding in my ears.

I also made a complete JACKASS out of myself. I saw Joss in the marketplace area of the con, where all the vendors are. I told him that I wrote this book, and there was a chapter about his cat. I think maybe he thought I was insane, but he was kind, anyway. Then I said (like a complete asshole) "someday, maybe you'll ask for my autograph."

Seriously. I said that. And was immediately embarassed by my own complete stupidity.

And he handed back to me with his sharpie and said, "can I have your autograph?"

Completely diffusing my total embarassment.

I signed it, and then he wandered off holding it, face out, so people could see the title.

Then I felt guilt because he had to carry my dumbass book around.

I'm in Entertainment Weekly and Huffington Post this week, and I'm still a dumbass of a wreck just trying to get a simple noun, verb, maybe a couple of adjectives out of my mouth to Joss Whedon.

It doesn't matter how many times I tell myself he's just another person who like, poops and stubs his toe on his kids' tubby toys and maybe says dumb things to his heroes.

I'm still an asshat who trips on her tongue everytime I try to just say "hello."
That is why we love you, Allyson. And that is why your book means so much. You are just like the rest of us, but more with the wit and the words (in print anyway).
...and you obviously can predict the future...

People came back to the Browncoat table after the reading asking if we had it for sale. I'm guessing that means the reading went well. Wish I was there to hear it.
My publisher offered to send me with copies to sell, but you were already doing me a huge favor, I wouldn't have dreamed of asking to take up space at your table.
