Giveaways, Swag, and how to find us at GRL 2015 ~ GRL Preview by Brandilyn with Giveaway #TeamPrismGRL2015


Brandilyn, Caroline, Christine, Lirtle (Andrea), Paisley, and PizzyGirl (Katie) will all be at GRL2015 in San Diego.  Be sure to find us to say hi!  We will all have Prism Logo’s on our badges!

It is finally time!  I will be leaving tomorrow for my trek to GRL2015.  In all honesty, I didn’t know if this would actually happen even as recently as a week ago.

A lot of things will be different for me this year… and a lot will be the same.  First of all, my constant travel companion and roomie of 2014 will not be by my side this year.  Sadly, Becky Condit is not going to GRL this year.  She is at home convalescing from an injury, but she wasn’t planning to go even before the injury.

This year, I will be rooming with the uber talented Catherine Dair, whom I first met before I started Prism when I put out a call for an artist to make the Prism Logo!  It isn’t her usual style, but she did a fabulous job for us.  I have since gotten to know her and like her more every day.  We decided before GRL was over last year that we would room together this year (as Becky had already told me she wouldn’t be able to attend this year).

This year, I am once again honored to be a Featured Blogger at GRL.  While most of my duties as a featured blogger were actually performed before GRL even started (read the #TeamPrism leg of the GRL blog tour if you missed any of the stops), You will find us in the Swag Room! (see below for details and come giveaway goodies).

Also, there is the mobility issue.  When you see me, I will most likely be using an electric scooter.  I am dying to walk, but I don’t think GRL is the time to test out my (very limit) weight bearing chops.    I am a bit nervous as I have never traveled at less than 100% mobility.   My sister is also traveling to GRL, so we will be traveling together.  However, she is also nursing an injury of her own… so that will be interesting.

GRL is also the only conference I will be attending in 2015.  My injury precluded my attendance at most of the ones I had planned to attend, including RT, RainbowCon, and UKMeet.   GRL is kind of the reward to myself for putting up with all the pain, surgeries, and doctors over the last 5.5 months.

Whether on crutches or a scooter, I will be easily identifiable, by the colorful AFO (fancy term for brace) on my left leg…


And just in case you can’t find me by that.  Here is a picture of me from RT last year


And finally if you can’t find me by either of those, look for the Prism Book Alliance logo on my name tag!



Back by popular demand this year, you can pick up Prism Book Alliance Pens and Sticky Notepads in the Swag Room.  New for this year, we will also have Prism Book Alliance Stickers and Lens/Electronics wipes (complete with spiffy carrying case to keep them clean and dust free).


We have a number of giveaways in store for GRL, both for those attending and those who can not attend.

  1. I hope you (and everyone who will attend) have lots of fun at GRL and be careful with your injury.
    I definitely Look forward to all the posts 🙂

  2. Wish I could go but being the caregiver for my partner and a fast food worker it just is not in my budget time-wise or financially. Have lots of fun and tell me all about it.
