Phoenix Comicon Wrap-Up

Since I’m knee deep in revisions on the next book, all while being on a multi-week, multi-destination vaction with my family, I will have to keep this brief. However. Can I just take the time to say the Phoenix Comicon was fabulous?

Fab. U. Lous.

I’d never been to a Con before and didn’t know what to expect, other than (as some would say) a bunch of “freaks and geeks.” Well if that’s so, I’m a freak and geek at heart I’ve decided. I had a blast chatting with fellow fantasy fans, checking out all the fun costumes, AND selling lots of books to boot.

Kevin also got to work on the cover concept for the sequel, tentatively titled The Lost Branch.

What think ye?

Dear hubby pretended to be miffed with my constant picture taking.



One of my new readers has such a cool name I asked permission to use it in a book. I’m actually so taken with her altogether that I think I need to develop an entire character based on her.


Isn’t she adorable?

One of the highlights of the trip was meeting Patrick Rothfuss. I managed not to go all geeky fan girl on him, but believe me, I let it all out once I got back to my booth. I was in a glow for the rest of the afternoon.


In the end, the event was such a success I’ve added a few more conventions to my schedule this year. Check it out on the events tab.

Meanwhile, I’m feeling inspired. I’m seriously pondering creating a costume from my book. I saw some amazing fairy outfits. Aradia perhaps? I wonder where I could find a wig with long silver hair. :)

Happy summer everyone!
