What are you doing Memorial Day weekend 2015? Me? I’ll be in Austin with a slew of fabulous romance authors. We’ll be talking books, giving away books, selling and signing books, and having a ton of fun. It’s the first Austin Author Affair convention and it’s promising to be a really great time.
More information about the event can be found here. You can also join a Facebook group with regular updates here. This is one of the most reasonable priced conventions I’ve ever committed to. It also helps that it’s driving distance from Houston.
I’m giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky newsletter subscriber. If you’re not already signed up, do so here. The only stipulation is you have to pay for your own hotel room, and yes, you MUST stay at the host hotel to win these VIP passes. The giveaway is sponsored by the event organizers.
So, what are you waiting for? Mark your calendar to join me in Austin!
Here is yet another belated blog post as I recall my awesome Memorial Day weekend at Comicpalooza in Houston. One of the things I love most about this event is that it’s in my home town, so I get to attend the entire weekend with little fuss.
There are always so many amazing costumes at this con, it’s hard to get photos of them all. I didn’t take nearly enough this year! In the ones I’m posting here I blacked out the faces of innocent bystanders who might not want their faces all over my blog.
There’s always such a great mix of costumes. From superheroes to comic book characters, movie characters, and even storybook characters.
Like any good con, Comicpalooza is loaded with panels and workshops. This year’s Literary track was amazing. One panel was all about Celtic writing. Cornelia Amiri, and Heather and Christopher Dunbar really know their stuff in this genre. I was very impressed.
I was honored to share a panel on Brainstorming, Mind Mapping, and Free Writing with Leo King, George Wright Padgett, and Emily Evans. I’ll never think of Frankenstein the same way again.
Doctors abounded at the con but unfortunately I didn’t get a photo with one. I did the next best thing and tried to run away in a Tardis instead.
Since the Tardis was apparently out of gas I considered the Jurassic park jeep…but then I remembered how that turned out in the movies.
Was there a van in that far, far, away space, a long, long time ago?
The Millennium Falcon could’ve used a paint job like this!
Spending too much money at conventions is easy, but I was honored to help support Bustin For Autism in some small way by buying these hand-made pillows.
It’s great seeing local businesses there as well, such as the Texas Art Supply. How cool is this body painting?!
Comicpalooza has more artists than you can count, but have you ever seen life-size origami action heroes? Here is Master Origami Artist T.J. Fu standing by one of his amazing creations.
Over all it was a fantastic four days in Houston. I can’t wait to see what next year brings.
