Saturday, October 30
Charlotte, NC
Charlotte Geeks Gala
I'll be the guest judge for the Geeks Got Talent contest!  There is a cost for admission and all proceeds go to Youth Homes, an organization dedicated to providing supportive human services to children and families.  For more information about the event, click here.  This is going to be a super fun gala and I can't wait to see y'all there!!

To learn more about the Charlotte Geeks, the Gala and to see me on TV, click here!  I have to admit, I was SUPER NERVOUS about the whole experience until I realized that I just had to sit there and the head of the Charlotte Geeks, Joey, was the one to do all the talking.  She did a brilliant job!  Also, she organized to have some zombies, some trekkers, Bat Girl and someone dressed up in an awesome steampunk outfit.  Joey totally outdid herself -- she rocks!

Hi,

I've been a big fan of your blog for a while, so I thought I would share some good news, which you might have extra appreciation for given your past life as a lawyer.

I wrote a short animated film on called "So You Want to Go to Law School" and posted it on YouTube about 11 days ago -- amazingly, it went viral and has almost 600,000 hits as of this morning.

I don't know if this will mean anything for my writinc career, but it's been a fun ride, and has started to open a couple doors.

Yes RBSHoo! I saw that!!! A friend actually sent me the link when it was on Above The Law -- I thought it was awesome in a "made me shudder from the truth of it" kind of way.

Excellent and congrats on it going viral! Very very cool!
