Space City Con 2013

Last weekend I went to Space City Con in Houston, Texas, and had a blast. This was the second year for the convention, and they really did a great job. Their first year wasn’t terrible, this time they had the con in a hotel much more convention friendly (plenty of meeting rooms for panels, lots of parking, great dealer room space), and the panels were more organized. I also managed to sell a lot of books, which always makes things better. A MINOR MAGIC was a hit with the ladies, and even HAYWIRE was snapped up. I look forward to going again next year. If you haven’t been, and traveling to Houston isn’t out of the question, then I highly encourage you to join me!

Before I head out, I wanted to share one of the few pictures I took while I was there. Seeing and meeting celebrities is always fun, but when you see one that was on a show (and a film) you loved, then it’s that much more awesome. On Saturday I happened to run into Jewel Staite in a reserved dining room while waiting for a panel. She was such a sweetheart, and when I asked if I could have my picture taken with her she actually acted like she was delighted to do it, though I’m sure it was a pain since I was but one of hundreds of people who’d asked for the same thing. Here is the picture. Thank you, Jewel! It’s so shiny!
