Warning: Con at a Con

Warning: Con at a Con

Before I launch into this story, I want to thank Jeff Moore, convention security at CONjuration as well as Angela (Headsmistress of this spectacular convention) and the gentleman with the awesome Cthulhu shirt who loaned us his daughter to haul boxes. This experience I am about to describe in no way sours my opinion of this event as it was handled well. I will be back next year.

So let me tell you about the super upsetting and dishonest thing that happened to me in the final minutes of my CONjuration Con 2015 experience. I don’t tell this story to warn anyone against the convention (because you should all go!), but rather to warn vendors at all conventions in the south east to be on the watch.

Bottom Line: The Rocket City LitFest Was a Blast!

Bottom Line: The Rocket City LitFest Was a Blast!

I’ve had a very busy October so far. On October 9th I finished a 9-week teaching position with a flurry of paper-grading. On the 10th and 11th I did the Rocket City LitFest in Huntsville. On the 13th I spoke to some kids at Chelsea High School. Today I slept in late and made pretty leather things, at the expense of my clean, unstained fingers.

As utterly exhausted as I was by weekend, I must admit that it was well worth it. I spoke on a bunch of panels, met some really nice readers, and got to interview one of the coolest people on this planet on stage: Jenny Lawson.
