October 26 – 28 I will be attending my very first sci-fi/fantasy/comic con! It’s pretty exciting, I’ve read about these cons and watched them on TV and now I am going to the Atlantic Canada Hal-Con! Of course I am a little concerned about my writing and how it will fit in – I write erotic sci-fi, so you would think there would be an audience there, but maybe not.
I have a little fan-girl thing going on right now, LOL. R.A. Salvatore will be there. J I’m hoping I get to see him for a moment, but I will have to control my fan-girl desires as I am going to have to spend most of my time at my own author table, which I am sharing with another local author, Julia Phillips Smith who writes dark vampire stories. Check out her website here – she has the most incredible live action trailers for her series!
For added fun, Ajay Fry from InnerSPACE is going to be at Hal-con for the third year. I love his show! So another fan-girl moment (are you sensing a theme yet?).But one thing that always freaks me out is seeing actors I admire in the flesh. I guess it is because I see them in a static moment, and of course, time passes. Entire looks change as kids grow up, requirements for the next project call for hair changes and even weight changes. So much as I am looking forward to seeing Ajay, I feel some trepidation as well. Shallow yes? It’s even worse with movie actors.
So getting back to authors, another appearance I am hopping to catch is Rachel Caine – I really hope I can meet her!
Well, I’ll be posting some photos I hope in a couple of weeks. Wish me luck.
