Wowed by WorldCon

There are some BIG names going to WorldCon, including (but not limited to) George R. R. Martine, Dean Wesley Smith, Patrick Rothfuss, and Lou Anders. I’m staring at the Renovation update right now, and I’ve just realized this isn’t going to be like the state-side conventions I attend. I feel very, very small.

And very, very stupid, since I don’t recognize half of the names on the list. When I get my hard-copy, I’m taking a highlighter to the names of people I want to meet or talk to. I’m buying some GRRM books so I can have him sign them.

Wow. There are going to be some amazing panels at this thing. After WorldCon, I’ll never view LTUE and CONduit the same way again…


Also, a plug-in for my friend Nathan, who has published his first indie book, Paradise Seekers. Go check it out!


  1. I'm with you. WorldCon is going to be AMAZING. I am so excited to go! I mean, who knows if we will even run into each other? So many people will be there!

  2. Just stopping by to say hi, since it's been a while since I've been online. Congrats on getting Weirs ready for querying already! You had quite the fast output on that, if I recall. I hope you get a few nibbles, and have fun at WorldCon!

  3. Laura, I didn't know you were going to WorldCon! Where are you staying? We'll TOTALLY run into each other, I'll make sure of it!

    And thanks, Eileen! Have fun with your nesting ;)

  4. Yep, I'm going! I'm not going to be staying in a hotel but with a friend's family about an hour or so away, which is why I can afford to go. But I will definitely be there for the whoooole shebang. It's going to be awesome.

    You said you were involved with the convention newsletter, though? What exactly are you working on for it?

  5. I'm not officially doing anything for the newsletter yet, just corresponding with the gal in charge of it, so we'll see! I'll be sure to update the blog. :D
