Attended my first creative conference this past weekend. I’ve been to a lot of conferences for my Day Job, but never a comic con, writer’s con, F&SF con… so another first.
IT….WAS…AWESOME! I learned so much – from the organizers, volunteers, panelists, moderators and fellow attendees. A special shout-out to my wonderful editor, Rhonda Parrish, who welcomed me into the circle of writers (and the evening ‘bar con’) with open arms; and S.G. Wong, who put up with my silly questions and nervous chatter with grace and equanimity.
I had a chance to read from my story at the “Fire” anthology release. It’s getting good buzz on Amazon and Goodreads – having read through most of the short stories I see why. I’m in awe of my book buddies… I share space with talented, creative and very funny people. I even signed my first autographs (as a natural Lefty, my penmanship is horrid but I aimed for “legible” which is about as good as I get.)
If you’re interested, it’s available on Amazon and probably other places as well –
Thanks to everyone for the experience, and I intend to be there next year!
