Those are the only ones I could find for now. If there are others, I'll add them later.

If you live around here you should try to come to one of these! I'll most likely be at all of the. The best way to see if I'm going is on my twitter. And if you go, there's a good chance you can meet these authors: Heidi R Kling (SEA, June 10), Daisy Whitney (The Mockingbirds, Fall 2010)--there are others, but these 2 are at almost every event; and these bloggers: Nancy (Tales of a Ravenous Reader), Zoe (Zoe's Book Reviews)--although, she doesn't really come to SF ones as they are quite a drive for her, or maybe the very elusive Jessica (Chick Lit Teens) who I have never met because the events are a bit too far for her.

Hope you can make it!
