Convention Queen meets McCaffrey

I’m not really a convention queen, I just liked the alliteration. I definitely wouldn’t mind becoming one, though. That being said, I had the opportunity to work Comicpalooza (again) in Houston a few months back, and it was amazing.

I spent a lot of time chatting up this guy:

If you don’t recognize him, that’s Todd McCaffrey, co-author of the Dragons of Pern series –  holding up a copy of his latest book City of Angels.

I was waiting to post about this until I had read his book.  But a few days turned into a few weeks and a few weeks into a few months.  Homeschooling the kiddo took priority and a lot of ancient biographies got put ahead in line.  Now I find myself cramming 600 pages the night before I fly out to DragonCon, dying to find out what’s going to happen to this fictional tiny humanoid collection of nanotech.  I’ll be working with Wordfire Press, hopefully hanging out with McCaffrey some more, and for sure trying to get this fun bit of sci-fi into more hands.

Wish me luck at DragonCon! And if you’re in Atlanta for Labor Day weekend, swing by.  I’ll introduce you to some stellar people who love books just as much as we do.
