KeyCon 2013

keycon header

So KeyCon 30 is right around the corner!  I try not to get too excited about things in advance – just make the plans and let them simmer – and now I finally have the time to get all twitterpated about the convention. (ZOMG, so much filming and writing to do last month, and even more this month!)

This is the first con that I’ve done outside of Ontario, and the first where I’ve been a Guest of Honour. I’m quite excited about both prospects! (This will also be my first foray outside of my own province since I was in jr. high)

And look at all these fine swells I get to spend time with:

I’ve been assured that there will be copies of my books (possibly all of them?) for sale in the dealer’s room, and that makes me really pleased too; means if you like what you hear, you can grab a copy.

I cannot stress enough how fantastic everyone has been. I have never worked with so professional a ConComm, and I’ve never had so smooth an experience getting prepped. I haven’t even been there yet and already I know it’s going to be quick, easy, and wonderful. (As long as I can keep from fangirling all over Lar.)
