Cara here! Oops, it’s November… so we may be a little behind with our podcast, BUT… soon, we’ll have our sh*t together and have guests. Nicole promised. Just kidding, she didn’t, but I’ll make it happen.
ANYWAY, exciting stuff happening in my world. I had my book launch party for Adventures of the Dress! Huge success, and I had a lot of fun. Finally seeing the project come to it’s fruition was a very happy and humbling experience.
Now to send out all Kickstarter packages and list the book on Amazon. Star Wars Dress by SiQ Clothing.
July is a wonderful month. It’s full swing summer and the biggest geek fest is San Diego Comic Con. This year did not disappoint as Cara ventured out as Lady Loki with her wicked corsets by SiQ Clothing.
There was a strong presence of female hero/anti-hero cosplay this year! Cara was asked by Chloe Dykstra to participate in a SourceFed 360 Degree Photo! CHECK IT OUT!

We also discussed the #AskELJames Twitter travesty and the ongoing Megalodon that is Internet trolling…which bridges a thin line of hate speech. Buzzfeed has a recap of some of the more enlightening tweets that occured: READ THE ARTICLE Bad writing or not: do you think EL deserved the abuse? AA says no.
Alcohol: freeze the shit out of sangria and make little sweet, sweet snow cones of destruction.
June is here and so is summer. We’re talking about ourselves mostly- it IS our first podcast and it’s horribly awesome! We touch on Cara’s kickstarter campaign, her convention schedule, cosplay, and the summer reading list for the Geek Girls Book Club… plus alpacas, Youtube and Netflix.
Minor foul language. Turn your volume down because our first attempt at podcasting is kind of fail. Nicole is in full stereo! (which is Cara’s fault, and she apologizes)
Alcohol & Authors is launching summer of 2015. We’re a literary podcast run by Nicole Girtman (leader of the Geek Girls Book Club) and C. Elizabeth Vescio (author of the Wasted Series). We’re excited to bring you more indie-scene authors, projects and lots of drink recipes for your weekend reading. Salute!
