Because I arrived fairly late on Wednesday, I'm just going to combine the very end of Wednesday with my event-filled day on Thursday.
I got in to beautifully, sunny San Diego on Wednesday just in time to check in and scope out the swag tables that were set to open the next day.
|I want, I want!|
I nabbed everything I could get my greedy hands on, and sort of wandered around to see who I could find.
Sure enough, it didn't take me long before I spotted a target... I mean, object of my adoration. I recognized one of my FAVORITE narrators, Greg Tremblay, right off the bat, and I practically sprinted towards, him.
|Greg is just the best! Listen to his work here.|
|That time I forgot how to look at a camera...|
|Me and my girl, Nico Jaye.|
|With J.H. Knight, again we can't look a camera in the eye (??).|
|Look who also wandered in! My bestie (in my own head only), Amy Lane,|
|Look at those cuties!|
|Vanessa talks with her hands!|
|We were soooo excited!|
I left a little early so I could hear another one of my super-stars, Kim Fielding, do her Author Reading. She read from Astounding!, and she was awesome.
Finally, at my last event of the day before the evening activities, I made my way into a STANDING ROOM ONLY Author Q&A with Charlie Cochet, Rhys Ford, and Lisa Henry.
I got some good gossip! Lisa Henry is almost finished with a Prescott novella, and she said there will be a THIRD book in the Dark Space series!! Charlie talked about more offshoot stories from the Thirds Series and more Mending Noel stories. Rhys said which character she identified most with (Miki), and how she mixes up her series to keep things interesting.
While on my way to get changed, I said hi to (aka, accosted) Jordan Castillo Price! She is so brilliant!
|Another author who is my bestie in my head.|
The rest of the night was... interesting. There was lots of luau costumes and dancing, and afterwards at the Juke Joint party, we werked it on the dance floor!
|Brandon Witt looking totally normal.|
|T.J. Klune is a master of the Hawiian dancing arts.|
|Daniel Kaine is no amateur.|
