Oh, poo! I totally forgot this was happening yesterday.

Well, not sure I could've broken away from the tyranny of child care, anyway.  :'(

Just signed up for the mailing list. Now that I've gotten over my hatred of BART and no longer have a job where I'm on call, I will actually go to one of these.

Join us on Sunday, November 8th, 2015 for the second Meetup. There were five of us at the first one, can we do better? Heck, yeah.

You can find all the details on the first post in this thread or just click here: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,221043.msg3088952.html#msg3088952

Someone asked me if it's okay to bring a friend that isn't a member of the Kboards WC, yes, absolutely.

Nine days to go for the Meetup (Sunday, November 08), so I'm giving this thread a bump for those that haven't seen it yet.

I want to go but...I'm moving about 2 hours away now. I'm leaving the East Bay after 40 years because the rents are so dang high and moving to the central valley once I find a place.  :(

If I don't move that quickly, then count me in! I'd love to meet everyone.

Very cool.  I hope people take advantage.  I dropped in on one of these KB meet-ups a couple of years ago (I think it was November 2012, actually) and it was honestly one of the coolest things I've ever done in my life.  And I was honored that they invited me.

Plus, San Francisco...

Yes, it's a terrific place to meet, with a view over the bay and good food, and of course KBoarders. What's not to like :)

Hope to see even more from the WC at our next meetup.

Definitely a fun time.  I do hope to meet another scifi/fantasy author at one of these someday.  So if you are one in the area: hint hint :D

Just saw this darn it. I've been in the City the last two days for the Periscope Summit. Will have to pass. But will consider another time. Resting up from the intense conference. I will be going to the San Francisco Writers Conference in February. Anyone else going?

We had a great meet-up! It's always fun to discuss writing and publishing with others that understand what we do. I'll schedule the next meet-up for March.

You can sign up to the meet-up mailing list here:

I'm not familiar with that conference. I'll take a look at it. Thanks.

Just came to say hello. Searching the forums for some meetups in SF, I came across this thread. I'll bookmark it for whenever you get together again. I'd love to meet more writers in the city.

So, still checking to see if anyone else is going to the San Francisco Writers Conference. It's at the Mark Hopkins hotel. I'm driving up to the city tomorrow. Would love to have a meet-up at the conference if any other Kboarders are going. So much fun to see each other in person. The con goes from  Thurs. to Sunday. So, that gives us four days. Sunday is Valentine's Day though. So, most likely, maybe we can all hang out Thurs. - Sat. sometime.

PM or post on the board. Thanks! Hope to see some of you there.  8)

Just signed up for the email! I live in Nor Cal, so I'm putting this on my calendar.

Definitely a fun time.  I do hope to meet another scifi/fantasy author at one of these someday.  So if you are one in the area: hint hint :D

Daniel - I write fantasy, among other genres. Would love to chat with you!

I look forward to meeting other local Kboarders. :)
