I spent my last three days on my feet, talking loudly, and telling people about my books. My feet hurt. My back hurts. My throat hurts. My voice is still hoarse.
All in all, it was the best weekend ever.
I’m not kidding, y’all. Dallas Comic Con was awesome. It was busy and it was colorful and it was so full of delightful, creative people and all kinds of fangirly goodness. It was incredible. I met so many cool people (several of whom were aspiring writers) and made so many exciting, nerdy memories. I’m telling you, this one is going to be hard to beat.
Perhaps best of all, I connected with so many people who loved to read and to write! They were enthusiastic and eager to talk about books. I even sold out of Between Worlds!
I also had two of my best friends in the world, Kat and Rachel (AKA Rat), there to help me (and to geek out over all the Harry Potter stuff)!
Some of the awesome people I met include…
The Daughter of Athena AKA the REAL daughter of author Andrea Stehle, author of Gods of Arcadia: Daughter of Athena… https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23448104-gods-of-arcadia
Voice Actress Cherami Leigh… http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0473873/
The Guardians of the Galaxy…
This adorable puppy named Lily…
The DFW Ghostbusters… https://www.facebook.com/DFWGhostbusters
This Scarecrow who is supposed to be terrifying but is actually quite friendly and tells silly jokes…
The Jurassic Park jeep…
And this adorable little R2.
Infinite love and thanks to my friend James William Peercy, author of The Wall Outside series, for inviting me to be a part of this convention! I can’t wait for next time!
You look awesome with the Ghostbusters mobile! I love Star Wars! In fact Guardians of the Galaxy looks interesting, but don’t know anything about it. Awesome Comic-Con trip! Have you met Batman and Captain America, also? 🙂
Thanks, Raul! I met several Batmans and Captain Americas, actually. As a matter of fact, one of those Batmen was running around in a hot pink dress and the look on his face was so scary that he was just daring anyone to laugh at him.
That’s so funny! Poor, Batman! They sure had a laugh. 🙂
Oh my 😀 I hope you saw Ernie Hudson go toward the bathroom!
Sadly, I did not. Maybe next year!
Did you sell a lot of the other books too? 🙂
I knew it! There’s no stopping the Jackie train.
I am definitely going to attend next year!!
