Okay, major fan girl conference for me. Started off with a bang – I got to meet Heather Graham at the literacy signing and she personally autographed a copy of The Night is Watching. Got my picture made with her and got to visit just a little. Also saw Char Chaffin, author of Unsafe Haven – you’ll see that picture too. The signing was a mad house as usual, but so cool.
After I got out, went to dinner with Elena Dillon, author of Breathe and Cyn Haydn, author of the Aurelia Series. We’re visiting, catching up, talking writing and I glance over at the next table. Who’s there – Nora. Now I did do a double-take, but did not embarrass myself horribly, did not jump up to ask for an autograph, did not sneak a picture, but she was close enough to touch. And it just kept getting better.
Attended the FF&P dinner and Prism Awards ceremony in costume. Don’t know if there’s a picture of that, which is probably good. Oops, found one. Probably the best meal I ate the entire conference and got to share the table with Nancy Lee Badger, author of The Highland Games Through Time series, J.C. Hay author of Sails & Sorcery: Tales of Nautical Fantasy,Book of All Flesh, Dark Faith, as well as Christie Meierz who won the Prism for Futuristic.
Many thanks to Nancy Lee Badger for the pictures! More on Wednesday!
