Con Report: World Fantasy 2018

When a professional convention in your field is literally in your back yard (or at least 2 blocks away from where you used to work for 12 years), there’s really no excuse not to go.

Con Report: Cleveland ConCoction 2018

As always, I had a fantastic time at Cleveland ConCoction this year! It’s one of my favorite cons, for the people I get to see, how many books I tend to sell, and especially how well this convention treats the authors they invite to participate in programming. I wish other conventions would take note! FRIDAYContinue reading “Con Report: Cleveland ConCoction 2018”
