One of the things that I am most excited about with attending this writing convention is, I'm a published author this time around. I feel like, not only do I belong but, I'm making progress toward my goals. Not that I expect anyone there to know but, I will.
What's really cool is, one of the panelist Terry W. Ervin III is featured in Abaculus III. My short story, "Raven's Transformation" is in Abaculus III. So, I'll definitely try to attend his panel, as well as my friend Marcia's panels.
I've already talked my BFF into riding shotgun with me. I'm thrilled that she's coming but, nervous too. You see, my BFF is a Minister. I've tried to prepare her in for what she might see at the convention. Hopefully, she won't embarrass me too much.
I know what you're thinking, my best friend is a minister and I write Urban Fantasy; how in the world does that work? I don't know. But, we've been friends forever. About a year ago I talked her into reading one paragraph from a short story I was working on. She ended up reading the entire story. She said, " I don't read Urban Fantasy but, your story just drew me in." She's been reading my stories every since. Though she has mentioned that I should try my hand at Christain fiction.
I'm looking forward to seeing my friend Marcia Colette again. Met her in person for the first time at Raven Con. I hope she brings baby girl.
Well, after attending my first conference, I had a short story published. Here's hoping this one brings good news too!
