A Personal Observation – It’s Almost Convention Time!
October 13, 2012 3 Comments
October is finally here and I have officially gone into ‘OMG-THE-WORLD-FANTASY-CONVENTION-IS-THE-END-OF-THIS-MONTH-AND-I’M-NOT-READY’ mode.
The World Fantasy Convention will be the first convention I’ve ever been to, and I’m so excited I can’t contain it! The best thing, apart from seeing some of my online writer friends, is the theme. Gothic and Urban fantasy. How perfect is that! I’ve been working on query letters and synopsis for my Side WIP and Side-Side WIP. I’m not really expecting anything to come from it, but I want to be prepared just in case. You never know, right?
I’m selling some of my books too. Not a lot, I’m only taking twenty with me. I wanted to get a new cell phone so I could take pictures, but alas, funds are minimal. No new camera for Darke. I’m taking my digital camera, but it’s not the same.
As this is my first convention, I’m pretty green about how things are done. Are there things I should look out for? Little secrets that could make the experience better? I was going to dress up (kind of) but I read a post from another writer and she suggested to keep the fancy shoes for parties. I didn’t even know there were parties!
I’d love to hear any suggestions you might have.
