Cocktail Hour Episode 69 – Favorite GCLS Moments

BarRag.jpgHey everyone! We weren’t really scheduled to do a show but we just had to do this one. Andy and I debated on whether to classify this as a standard show or something else but we decided to just go with a Cocktail Hour show. Mostly because we were giggling about it being episode 69…

We have no guest tonight. Well, I think that’s not really true. We have more than 20 guests. We asked for those who wanted to share some of their favorite memories from the 2013 Golden Crown Literary Society Conference to call in and leave a brief message. And, wow, did we get some great calls. A big “thank you!” to everyone who shared with us – either over the phone or at the conference.

We promised a link to Beth Burnett’s blog. And, below, you’ll see the YouTube videos of Georgia Beers’ video, A Day in the Life of a Romance Writer, and Nikki Smalls’ singing Baby Got Back at karaoke. You don’t want to miss these.

We’ll be back next week with award winning author, Chris Paynter, but for now, sit back and enjoy some wonderful moments from the 2013 GCLS Con.

    I will have new glasses by Portland, Rev… you better be ready.

      I bought some new weights this morning. I’ll be ready!

    I want to hear more details about that story.

      Perhaps Liz and I can reenact it in Portland. My favorite part was after, when I had six butches on their knees in front of me, looking for a screw. (A glasses screw, of course.)

    Yes, there’s a GCLS Board member listening. The cheese doodle fundraiser is an interesting one. πŸ˜›

    Great Podcast Guys. Cheri, I told you Isabella looked really tall.

    So great to hear all these stories! I have already set up my own Cheese Doodle Dive Fund! I’m glad I am not the only one who has a “writer crush” on Georgia Beers. By the way, Rev, I AM JEALOUS! Anyway, I am planning to attend Portland and can not wait to meet all of you! I want a Bearded Clam pin! I also enjoyed all the photo bombing! Nikki, “Keeper of The Phone Numbers”, LOL!

    I am going to create a special edition photo magnet of the Great Pretzel Incident, yes I am.

  9. Allison Mugnier / Jul 7 2013 1:57 am

    – Note to self: Next time, make the damn sympathy call to Andy!!

    – My word, Ms. M has an even sexier voice than Cheri — also like Cheri, you don’t notice it so much in person, but in a recording, wow.

    – Cheez Doodles R Us! I’ll throw in $5 for each of you.

    Love you both!

    The Georgia Beers video is way to funny, thanks for the laugh. Looks like Nikki and everyone had fun with the karaoke

  11. Pat Bane / Jul 8 2013 10:40 am

    P.S. would love a Contra Button.

    • Rev / Jul 8 2013 4:52 pm

      I’ll send you an assortment. Buttons and magnets?

  12. Carrie Stephanie Joan Gooch / Jul 8 2013 4:47 pm

    Great show guys!
    God it made me laugh! Loved all the photos, made me a bit jealous looking at them all πŸ˜‰
    Can’t believe you didn’t have sex with Jennifer at the con Cheri, πŸ˜‰ I had one for the first time was soo good.
    I said this to Bev,
    Andy, it was great to see you and her via computer for the book hangout πŸ™‚ its nice to put faces to the voices I hear on the show.

    Andy I have been meaning to say your purr is so great! Lol

    Loved Nikki’s rap! Was so awesome! I also loved Georgia beers a day in the life of a romance writer, haha was so funny loved the law and order reference πŸ˜€

    Would love a button or a magnet Cheri, but living in the UK would make it difficult, i have been meaning to donate to the show so if I could do that to cover the cost of the international shipping πŸ™‚ that would be totally awesome if ya wouldn’t mind.

    P.S I to would love to hear how beths glasses managed to get broken on liz’s breasts! That was so hilarious! πŸ™‚

    • Rev / Jul 8 2013 4:51 pm

      I’m a pro at international shipping. We’ll make you a care package with some food and send it off. I’ll be in touch!

      • carrie gooch / Jul 9 2013 10:32 am

        thank you! I really appreciate that πŸ˜€ your totally awesome!

      • nikkismalls28 / Jul 15 2013 10:17 am

  13. Cas / Jul 9 2013 4:12 am

    Hey grrls…wanted to say a big thanks for the show and for the chance to meet you at the GCLS con. It was a pleasure to sit and talk with you both, especially you Andy.
