Whew. A day of frantic prep today, as we leave tomorrow for the Decatur Book Festival, where I’m on a panel, and thence to DragonCon, which I have never yet attended. (I’ll be presenting at the Parsec Awards Saturday night–either because I am mildly internet-notorious, or because I have really awesome Boots, it’s anyone’s guess.) Sunday, I will actually go to the dealer’s room and wander around and get some of that credit card debt back. I don’t have a table and won’t be selling, but Ellen Million Graphics in the Imperial Ballroom will have a selection of my art in print and merchandise form.
Honestly, I’m a bit terrified by the size of the con. I looked at their little pamphlet, and my brain exploded. I’m overwhelmed by crowds and I haven’t even left the studio yet!
On t’other hand, it can’t be as packed as Comic-Con. Comic-Con was more humans that I’ll meet in my entire lifetime, in one building.
So today I have to get a Digger done, get all my directions and contact info printed, and pack the clothes so that I can go from Respectable Children’s Book Author at Decatur to Deranged Artist at DragonCon.
