Imaginarium 2015 wrap-up

Imaginarium 2015 wrap-up

I am baaaaack! Imaginarium 2015 was a total utter win. Linda Rettstatt and I had a blast. We sold books, signed books, chatted with other writers, took pictures, sat on panels–well, in other words took full advantage of the event.

It was a pretty sweet job, and I didn’t appreciate it. So, I gave it up for a whim that lasted almost all of ninety days after I left. Then I had NOTHING

More con stuff…

In case you have never attended a con, there is a lot to do and see. I have been a lot of years, and so many times never even go into anything but the writer’s track. This part of MSC is something not EVERY con has, so if I ever go to another one, I will partake of all the other festivities. But I digress… So, the first workshop I attended was Elements to becoming a successful Author. It was held at 9:00 AM and as you may imagine had a lot of Monster Energy drinks in attendance.
