Is this really GRL’s fourth year? I remember the very first GRL in New Orleans in 2011. I’d never been to NOLA before, but despite the kind of heat and humidity I’m not used to, I fell in love with the city.
Every year GRL’s been in a different city I’ve never visited before. Albuquerque was a lot of fun. So was Atlanta. And now, Chicago, which I’ve only ever passed through on my way to another city.
GRL’s become a yearly mile marker for me. Another year as a published author, another (however many) new books. GRL 2011 was the first time anybody actually recognized me. I remember walking into the opening event in that huge ballroom. I was exhausted and hungry from traveling all day, so I headed straight for the food table – until one very sweet reader spied my badge and shrieked, “OH MY GOD, IT’S CAT GRANT!!!”
I picked myself off the floor, signed her book and stood talking to her for about ten minutes while my stomach slowly consumed itself. But you know what? I didn’t even care. In my mind, I was going, “These are my people! No more getting shunted aside, treated like a red-headed stepchild like at RT or RWA. GRL’s a place where authors who write what I write are treated like rock stars.”
Is it any wonder I look forward to it every year?
