In the dealers’ room: me, BFA winner Erica L. Satifka, and Eliza Chan.
Attending your first multi-day con alone is a scary thing! Thankfully, FantasyCon seems to be one of the friendliest out there, and in between my first, impromptu panel and reading, I had the pleasure of meeting no end of fascinating people. I’d like to give a special shout-out to Eliza Chan for the mutual tagging-along, Erica L. Satifka (winner of Best Newcomer), and James Everington (I owe you a drink)! It was also a pleasure to meet again/for the first time: Priya Sharma, Lucy Hounsom, Irene Soldatos, Harriet Goodchild, Anna Stephens and Ed McDonald; and to get a cheeky ARC of ‘Witchsign‘ signed by Den Patrick.
Big thanks to the red-cloak team and to the Bull Hotel staff for making everything run smoothly. I hope to see some of you at BristolCon at the end of October, if not next year!
