One Day at SDCC

My husband and I will be zipping on down to San Diego this weekend to enjoy a day at SDCC. Well, "enjoy" is my way of avoiding being negative about it. I have grown to loathe SDCC; it is too crowded and we never seem to get a hotel. Anywhere. In the state.

It does have its charm and is always full of surprises, so we'll see what the day brings. I'm not trooping, no cosplay, not even hawking my book...... not buying anything... not even sure what I'm doing there, to be honest!

But just for fun, I'm going to wear a QR code on my back and see if anyone comes to the site.

So if you found your way here by way of SDCC 2014, please leave a comment! Free codes to all who leave comments (no matter how you arrived)!!!

Con Withdrawal

With Dragon*Con over, I, like many others, find myself pining while re-adjusting to the real world. But if there's one place to be inspired to kick my passions (ehem, addictions) into full gear, it's Dragon*Con.

First, I saw one of my favorite authors every day (Timothy Zahn)... mostly by chance... and that means the stars are telling me to write more fiction.

Second, there were some darn creative costumes to make me wonder why I bothered with some of the passé film, game, and tv characters I was attempting to replicate. Next year I'm going full bore on my Twisted Cinderella, which, if done right, could easily win a costume contest. And there are many other costumes to try out. It seems I'm venturing away from Star Wars into the unknown!

I got my Jayne hat. And a giant stuffed Octopus. I'm a happy girl.


For those of you more local to So Cal, this weekend I'll be at the Ventura ComicCon (C4). Mostly Sunday, partly in costume and partly at the 501st Legion table, and hopefully a little bit on Saturday.

Hope to see you there :-)

Dragon*Con 2013... LOOK OUT!

The costumes are packed, the "Plan A" itinerary is written down, and my plane tickets are printed. Wouldn't it be just awesome if I forgot something critical like, say, my camera?


The last five copies of my 1st Edition of Handler's Break will find their way to a freebie table (or hotel table with space on it). Yep, free. Freebies! Lots of bookmarks to hand out to friends, too.

Special Dragon*Con 2nd Ed FREE Download Code from Smashwords.com: VR35V.

Or get a copy of the book in print and I'll sign it for you! (Amazon.com)


While I'm not quite famous enough to earn my own special seat, you can meet me at a couple of events.

  • Sat. 5pm "Costuming Insights" panel in room A706.
  • Sat. 8pm, screening of "The Chronicles of Humanity" in Hilton Grand Salon E. I'll be there at the end of the screening when the talk with the director and cast starts up, so probably around 9pm.
  • Sun. 5-6pm, at the 501st Legion club table. I think that's on the bottom floor of the Marriott but I'm not sure.

I'll also be in the parade, doing a "Running of the Hoods," the Star Trek record breaker, assorted panels and events, shopping, etc. I know it sounds vain and nobody's dying to hunt me down, but dang this is one bad party!!!

I love meeting people, so feel free to come up and say hi :-)
