Emerald City Comic Con Recap

| March 18, 2019

I didn’t get to spend a ton of time at Emerald City Comic Con this past weekend, between my day job and writing that needed to get done. But I cruised the sales areas on Friday night (and chatted with my vendor friends) and spent most of Saturday at the convention or nearby. I went […]

Conventions as a Learning Experience

| April 10, 2018

One of the things that I love the most about going to conventions like Norwescon is the opportunity to learn from other writers. Even if I don’t get a chance to go to many (or any) panels that I’m not on, I still wind up in conversations while working at our table, or at parties, […]

Norwescon General Recap
