Guess who’s just been approved for her first press badge for SDCC? Guess who will get to go to Preview Night ON HER BIRTHDAY?
That’s right! I will be attending my very first San Diego Comic Con this year, covering the massive event for Tor.com along with my partner-in-crime/photographer extraordinaire, Emily Heyer! I’m very excited, and will be working hard to see all there is to be seen, give you lots of coverage from a first-timer perspective both at Tor and here, and hopefully not getting so lost in the convention center that I don’t find my way home.
Now, here’s the thing, while I’ll be getting into SDCC for free, there’s still the matter of where I’m going to stay (I have a couple of options I’m looking into), as well as things like, you know, eating, and spending money, and money for drinks (of which I hear there are lots). It’s my first time at Geek Christmas, AND it’s my birthday week – so I’d like to be able to have a good time and not have to be desperately worried about funds.
While I’m not doing a specific drive for this the way I have in the past for Gally, if you’ve ever considered reading some of my fiction, now would be a GREAT time to purchase a copy of my chapbook, On the Ground Floor. It’s got two short stories in it that were crafted with love. They’re not genre stories, but they are short stories that are very close to my heart. And it’s so purdy:
/shameless plug. Actually, it’s not a shameless plug. It’s a very legitimate plug for a very legitimate product on my very legitimate blog. So there. If you like short fiction, or if you’d like to help me have a great birthday week at SDCC, consider buying a copy of On the Ground Floor.
WOO HOO! More to come…
