It has been an extremely good weekend. We are extremely tired. *laugh* I met Jim Frenkel from Tor Books, who came in on the conversation we were having when I was talking about URBAN SHAMAN having sold out (he said, “Do you know what that means?” I said, “That I’m brilliant?”, which was so completely not what he expected there was a very long and funny pause while he tried to figure out how to respond *laugh*), and after a while of hearing about the sales I’d made to publishers, he wanted, in essence, to know why Tor didn’t have a piece of me. *laugh* I said it wasn’t for lack of trying on my part, and we talked for a long time, and this morning I gave him a copy of URBAN SHAMAN and said I hoped we’d have the chance to work together in the future, and he said he hoped so too, so that by itself was quite worth coming to the con for.
But *besides* that, we just flat-out had a fantastic time. We met Lisa and her husband Erik (Lisa is responsible for me being here. Lisa is on my list of Top Favorite People Ever! *grin*) who are just wonderful, we found ourselves standing next to Carmen Argenziano in the hospitality suite and tried not to giggle like idiots, we met Spider and Jeanne Robinson, I served cake to Terry Brooks, we listened in on Richard Hatch talk about sort of life, the universe and everything during breakfast, I did several panels which were a lot of fun and which I will write about sometime later this week…it was just a blast. We had a totally fantastic time.
I *really* hope we come back next year. :)
