Okay, I am SO excited!
I learned that I have been INVITED as a Literary Guest to Liberty Con in June! If you do not understand my delight, please allow me to explain. Yes, I have been attending Cons for years, but I have always known just about everyone there and have usually been accompanied by H David Blalock - my father and a brilliant writer. He is the guest, and I am often the one who accompanies him. Yes, I am honored with guest status because of my writing, but the Cons have always been in what you could call my 'comfort zone' - publishers and writers I knew. So I could relax, be as strange as I liked, and just have a good time.
Thanks to Jason Cordova, I have made it into Liberty Con! It is a small Con, but I have heard such wonderful things about it. Stephanie Osborn is constantly asking me why I have not been, and my reply has always been 'I would have to be invited, I think'. Now it has happened! I cannot tell you how nervous I am. I want to make a good impression so I get invited back.
Keep me in your thoughts, well wishes and all. Yes, H David Blalock and I will be going to Hypericon 2015, but I am excited about Liberty Con 2015 for different reasons.
Speaking of Hypericon, I understand it is more of a gathering for the departed Fred Grimm. I only met him a few times, but I feel for his widow. I sincerely hope it is a great fellowship and look forward to seeing friends there.
