Post QuestCon High

The weekend is over and I’m still on Cloud 9. QuestCon in Mobile, Alabama was only my second convention ever and the wave of elation has yet to end. What was so awesome? Well, I’ll narrow it down to my top 3 for you guys.

In third place: COSPLAY!!!!

I LOVED seeing everyone in character. So many great outfits stopped by, and each person totally represented their cosplay complete with attitude. Strike a pose and rock it!!!

Second: The Celebrity Guests.

Matthew Atchley, John Anderson, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Jody Lynn Nye, Dan Wells, Paul Amos…the list goes on and on. There were so many cool people to meet and awesome panels to attend that I didn’t even get to meet the

RWBY voice actors! I did shake hands with Paul Amos and saw Jason Douglas, but I was kind of  fan girling in my head and didn’t want to give away that I totally adore their characters. Next time though, I’m totally letting my mouth fly open with, “

Dude you were awesome in….” Screw trying to be cool. I WANT A PICTURE!!!! I did totally get these snapshots though, AND I got to actually participate in a panel with DAN WELLS!!!!

Okay, so what can beat celebrities?

And the Winner Is…: Spending time with Friends, Family, and Fans, and Making New Ones.

Helping me man my booth, were three of the coolest people ever, friend and author Carrie Dalby and the Purple Pixie herself, Sylvia Lee. Hubby and the kids were there and Saturday, I even got to see some of my other homeschool babies. Matthew Atchley (celebrity artist) and his wife returned to Mobile and it was SO great to hang out with them again. I also got a chance to meet some young readers and even heard back the next day how much they were loving the story!!! That’s really what it’s all about. I love taking my readers on an adventure they enjoy.

Well, the weekend is over and Lex2 is calling my name, so even though I’m still riding the high, I must return to my manuscript and find out what happens when Lex…

oops, can’t say. Hee hee!!

 

Catch you guys again soon! Oh, if you want a chance to grab your own copy of Legendary Lex: An ODD Beginning, click here for more info.

Loves and Hugs to you all!!! And a special thanks to QuestCon for making me a part of your family. ❤

Countdown to Release!

Prerelease1

Last weekend was the big pre-release for Legendary Lex: An ODD Beginning. Unfortunately, a hurricane decided to sweep through and cut my party time short. We still had a good turnout considering the weather and it was a great practice run for upcoming QuestCon October 20-22.

I’ve been super busy prepping everything, but I want to take a few seconds and bask in the excitement. Yes, Lex is finally going to be released to the world. This is HUGE for me. But, I’m still a regular person and a fan, and QuestCon has some pretty awesome guests in their line-up.

Sherrilyn Kenyon. Okay, let me say this one more time so it really sinks in. Sherrilyn fricking Kenyon is going to be at QuestCon!!! I’ve only recently been introduced to her books, but I’ve become totally obsessed with her story. (And I say story because all of her books seem to intertwine in some way so far.) Her Chronicles of Nick are an awesome read for almost any age, and her Dark Hunter series is sensational for adults. (Well, adults who like the paranormal romance genre.) Needless to say, I will be trying not to fangirl out at her booth. I do, however, have 2 books ready for her autograph. Hee hee.

Next on my list of swoon-worthy guests: Paul Amos. Dude, I didn’t even realize how much I knew him from. But, like most Amos admirers, his Lost Girl time as Vex will reign at the top of my list. (So awesomely portrayed!)

Okay, I just realized this list could go on and on because Jodelle Ferland, Jason Douglas, and part of the cast of RWBY will also be there. It’s enough to send me into giggle-fits.

Sigh…

It’s going to be tough remaining professional next weekend. Wait! What am I saying???

 

 I’m going to be partying it up behind my table with my own crewQuestCon and sneaking off for quick peeks at my fave guests. I’ll be wearing funky fun clothes and my Dragicorn houseshoes and having a blast! Professional doesn’t mean boring or BORED! I’ll still be there for my fans and giving out info to those who have no clue who I am because, let’s face it, I’m still a total newcomer to the author’s table.

I’ll be sure to let you guys know how it all goes and I hope to see some of you there!!
