Can’t Wait to Meet Everyone at GRL!

by Deanna Wadsworth

Thank you so much, Blogger Girls for hosting me today!

My name is Deanna Wadsworth and I have been writing gay romance for six years. I have over a dozen titles to choose from, which range from erotic fairy tales to gritty historicals. If you would like to check out my books, some of them are on sale for only .99 cents on Amazon, like my three book fairy tale bundle which includes a gay erotic retelling of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and Book Three of my sexy Christmas books A Gift for Santa which is also less than a buck.

I am so excited about GRL this year! This is my third time attending, and I am looking forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.

Many writers are introverts, but if you are attending GRL, it will take you about three point two seconds to know that I am not one of them! LOL

I love to meet fans, talk books, and just have fun. You will find me laughing loudly somewhere, having a drink at the bar or bustin’ a move and raisin’ a ruckus on the dance floor—at both the main events and the After Hours parties. I hope all of you feel free to come up to me and say hi! I promise not to bite…..though I have spanked a few folks before. I swear they asked for it! LOL You know who you crazy cats are!

Any whooo…. Please feel comfortable to come up to me and say hello. I am bringing prizes and goodies that I can’t wait to share. I didn’t bother with the pre-order book sale nonsense, because frankly, I’m attending GRL to meet fans and make lifelong friendships with people like me and I didn’t want to make any extra work for fans. If you wanna buy my print book Easy Rider, there will be copies available at the main books signing on Saturday.

To celebrate GRL and my visit to the Blogger Girls, I am offering a FREE copy of my 1Night Stand book, Accidentally Beautiful, to one lucky commenter!


About Accidentally Beautiful

Accidentally BeautifulMartin Baird is perfectly content in his safe, predictable job as head concierge for Castillo Resorts, but when a handsome stranger whisks him away for a night of tropical escapades—first visiting an isolated gay bar then to a secluded beach where erotic delights await—Martin’s world is thrown upside down. He’s never met a man like Garret Fisher, but it seems he has been waiting for a night like this all his life.

Could something truly beautiful come out of this accidental meeting? Or was it really not an accident at all?

Available at: Amazon


If you would like to meet me, here are my scheduled appearances at GRL:

The Fantasy of Romantic Fiction
Session Room: Cyprus I & II
Time Slot: Thursday October 16th; 3:50-4:45 PM

Readers like to be swept away into far away lands—but what does it take to build a fantasy world—even a romantic fantasy world—brick by brick?  Join Jet Mykles, Amy Lane, and Deanna Wadsworth as they take you through a mad-libbed world and talk about how they recreated their worlds from the ground up using words, imagination, and just a touch of insanity. There are new gods under different moons,  men too gorgeous to be rock stars, and Santa’s elves with candy flavored cum! In a fast paced game of mad-libs, this spotlight is sure to be filled with laughter and prizes. Lots of prizes!


Author Lounge Event
Session Room:  Trillium III
Time Slot:  Friday October 17th;  12:30-1:10 PM

During the lunch break hours on Thursday & Friday attendees can come by the Trillium Ballroom for one on one chats with 30 of your favorite authors in a relaxed, informal setting. Each hour a different assortment of our Featured and Supporting authors will be on hand to answer all those burning questions about their books. Chat with all your favorites and perhaps discover one or two new ones!


Scrapbooking With The Rainbow Romance Writers
Session Room:  Sorrell I
Time Slot: Friday October 17th; 2:30-4:20 PM

The Romance Writers of America’s only chapter for LGBT romance invites you to build a gay romance scrapbook with a pack of your favorite authors. We’ll have the customizable covers, pages, and bling to make them sing, so all you have to bring is your love of homo romance to build a GRL 2014 memory book of your very own. The RRW members will have custom pages, but we’ll also have blanks for any nonmember authors who want to get scrappy with us.

Session Room:  Trillium II, III, IV
Time Slot:  Saturday October 18th; 2-5 PM

Saturday afternoon, find your favorite authors for photos-ops, autographs, and swag in the Trillium Ballrooms. Many books will also be for sale at this event.


About Deanna Wadsworth

Deanna Wadsworth might be a bestselling erotica author, but she leads a pretty vanilla life in Ohio with her wonderful husband and a couple adorable cocker spaniels. She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. When she isn’t writing books or brainstorming with friends, you can find her making people gorgeous in a beauty salon. She loves music and dancing, and can often be seen hanging out on the sandbar in the muddy Maumee River or chilling with her hubby and a cocktail in their basement bar. In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes the quiet times when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships have always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.


Buy Deanna’s books at Dreamspinner Press, Decadent Publishing or at any reputable eBook seller.

  3. Shirley Ann Speakman

    GRL sounds wonderful I hope you enjoy your time there.

    I think you are the first author I’ve read on a blog say they are an extrovert! As I’m an introvert, I don’t go to cons, as I would just sit in my hotel room!

    • LOL, It’s very true. And you might be surprised how much you enjoy cons, even if crowds aren’t your thing. There are loads of quiet times, and places to sit and chat one on one, too. 🙂

  5. I so wish I could be there. Hopefully one of these years, not too far away, I’ll be there sharing with all of you. Have fun and Sell Everything!!!

  6. Rod B

    Great post & giveaway!

  7. H.B.

    I hope you have a ton of fun at GRL =) Thank you for the giveaway!

  8. please count me in

  9. No, you are not an introvert. lol I can’t wait to see you again! I see drinks in our future.

  10. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend this year. Maybe it will be closer to home sometime in the next couple of years, and I’ll be able to finance it.

  11. I am an introvert, so if I was to one day hopefully go to the GRL I would come and find you so you could introduce me to your fellow authors 🙂 Firstly I love the cover on the prize book and I would like to read how accidental the meeting was and what happens next, thank you for a chance to win the book (now on my wish list)

  12. Jennifer R

    Can’t wait to meet you at GRL!
