so long, and thanks!

As I am about to embark on my Great West Coast Adventure (starting with a three day cross-country train to Vancouver, would you believe it), I must bid farewell to the ABW. It’s been an educational experience, to say the least. I don’t know if I really have the constitution for regular blogging, but it was a privilege to get to write about issues that are important to me, and engage with all sorts of readers and fans and curious individuals about them.

If you have found this blog (and my posts about the POC!Bechdel test and Supernatural) though external links, a few things of note. I am not the Angry Black Woman. The Angry Black Woman is a friend of mine and asked me to guest post on her blog. I was happy to do so and I’m grateful to her for giving me this opportunity. My name is Alaya Dawn Johnson, I’m a writer of speculative fiction, and you can find out more about me on my website.

If you happen to be based out in LA, you can catch up with me on October 4th at the West Hollywood Book Fair, where I will be presenting on an all-star panel about vampire fiction (my book MOONSHINE, which is coming out in February, is a 1920s vampire novel).

Otherwise and in any case, my thanks for all your thoughts, opinions and perspectives and maybe we’ll see each other again later.

    I really enjoyed reading your stuff here over the past couple months. You have a unique perspective on things that I always found to be really refreshing. Hope that we get to see you over here again and that the West Coast doesn’t disappoint. Best of luck to you!

    I keep up with this blog from time to time, and was most recently linked to your SPN post, but I did not know you were a writer! I can’t wait to check your work out, babe. Have a great time on the west coast!

    (Now that I’m slowly catching up) You dropped some great stuff on this blog, even though it’s a given considering the sort of talent ABW can encourage to post here, it’s great seeing your work here. Looks like your site will be added among my bookmarks.

    Oh! If you’re taking the Via Rail cross-Canada to Vancouver, it’s an awesome trip and the food is WONDERFUL. :D

    It was a pleasure to read your words. Your posts made me de-lurk. :)
