Stokercon was wonderful and busy and bursting with people I love and people I’ll love as soon as I get to know them better. What a cool experience!
It took place on the Queen Mary, which was a phenomenal big ship. It was even sweeter in banana split form.
I spent time with part of the Gamut staff and other friends. We did panels, took pitches, and compared pedicures.
Mat Kaufman and I had a reading together in the Queen Mary’s wedding chapel. I read from Detritus in Love, and I remembered how much I love the beautiful language in this story. And look! I have rainbow hair!
It was a great experience and I’m glad I went. In two weeks I’ll be making an appearance at LDStorymakers, so I’m getting ready for that. Have a great week!
Felt like we’d already met a million times, but this was so much fun, you’re a rock star, and I’m SO GLAD we finally got a chance to hang out. Thank you for all of your hard work.
It was wonderful to finally meet you in person, Mercedes! You are so lovely, inside and out. You deserved every bite of that split. 🙂
Wish I could’ve been there! Soundsike a blast. Hopefully next year I’ll be able to swing it since it will be in the same time zone as me 🙂
