  • Wherein I Write of Con Antics and Turtle Zombies…

    So I’m back from the Ad-Astra Toronto convention, and It. Was. Grand. I’m still riding the high. Well, that and the caffeine buzz from the multiple cups it’s taking me to wake up post-con the last couple of mornings. ūüėÄ My husband came with me, both to share the driving (Toronto is a not-insignificant 5…

  • Fan Expo 2013 Highlights

    So…Fan Expo Canada? Totally. Awesome. Seriously, I had such a good time that the only question running through my head all weekend was¬†how did I not start going to these¬†years ago?!? The people, the costumes, the displays…the sheer¬†energy was simply astounding. People of all ages, shapes, sizes, colours, and religions, in costume and out, brought…

  • Pictures from a Convention

    Three cheers for me — I just pressed ‘send’ and the manuscript for Sins ¬†of the Lost has been submitted!!! ¬†You can’t begin to imagine the happy-dancing going on around here. And not just my own. I think my husband is about ready for a meal that doesn’t come out of a package…and maybe some…

  • Honey, I’m home!

    And wow, was that ever an amazing experience. For those of you new to my little corner of the blogosphere, I was away at the World Fantasy Convention in Toronto over the past weekend. It was my first big convention, though people there laughed when I said so and told me that it was nothing…

  • Pre-Conference Panic

    When I registered last year for the World Fantasy Convention, it seemed as though it were an eternity away. Then, this morning, I woke up to the sudden realization that I leave¬†the day after tomorrow. You all know what this means, right? Yep, time travel is not only possible, it’s happening right now — because…

  • World Fantasy Con 2012

    So…guess what? I’m gearing up for my first-ever attendance at the World Fantasy Convention next month, which is conveniently being held in Toronto. Convenient for two reasons: first, I can drive there (sooo much cheaper than flying!), and second, said driving will (fingers crossed) take place before the snow sets in. Factor in the fact…
