Queen of zomBcon... well, almost.

What does Bruce Campbell, George Romero and myself all have in common? Not a thing until zomBcon, my friend. After last weekend's zombie-fest in Seattle, we still have very little in common but I do have a handy program guide with my name several pages away from theirs so I'm running with it.

Seattle was lovely and rainy (I expected nothing less) and stepping through puddles with friends made the experience infinitely richer. New friends and fellow panelists, Jesse Petersen - author of Married With Zombies, S.G. Browne - author of Breathers and the newly released Fated (you go buy nooooooooow), and Scott Kenemore of The Zen of Zombies and The Code of the Zombie Pirate (damn you for being funnier than me) made my first con fantastic.

Highlights:

Being accosted by Chuck Palahniuk of Fight Club fame.











My first book signing for Hungry For Your Love with the fabulous people at Barnes & Noble










Finally meeting one of my favorite people in person, Scott Browne











A dinner of "precious nuts in a pearly pool." I couldn't resist that, could I?


The plane trip home with a raging cold and my attempts to NaNo while my nose drooled. Good times, people. Goooood times.













ZomBfied by a hottie named Dexter.

Thank you, zomBcon!

  2. You brought a cold home from your trip, too? We need to learn how to pick better souvenirs.

  3. My agent is there so it's not out of the realm of possibilities! I may start traveling with the zebra if this keeps up and I can shove the jade plant under the seat.

  9. Sounds like a great time. Love all the pics. Colds, however, are not good souvenirs. You must vanquish it! Both you and Kelly.

  11. Julianna, we'll meet up next time! They tell me once you're in the con circuit, there's no escaping... ;)

    Thanks for the link, those are great! I have a few coming out for ZDG in the next week or so, I'll be making some Christmas cards and, perhaps, a YouTube with Undead Fred's Greatest Hits.
