At long last I have it: My Mysticon 2012 schedule!
Mysticon is a sci-fi, fantasy, & horror convention held February 24-26 at the Holiday Inn – Tanglewood (4468 Starkey Road, SW) in Roanoke, VA. Author Guest of Honor is the lovely Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Artist Guest of Honor is the fabulous Ursula Vernon!
A couple of things not to be alarmed about: 1.) Yes, once again, my signing is first thing on Friday night, before I’ve been on any panels or gotten to meet anyone at the convention. PLEASE come see me — I’ll have lots of special goodies with me! I’m also happy to hook you up with purchases whenever I have free time — just pull me aside and let me know. (And I do take major credit cards, thank you Square.)
2.) I will not be appearing on Sunday, because I need to head home first thing in the morning. I do hate leaving so early — especially on the rare occasion that I get to see Sherri! — but the 26th is both the Fairy GodBoyfriend’s and Fairy Goddaughter the Younger’s birthday. I CANNOT MISS THIS. I would lose all my Fairy Godmother points.
It’s also the Fairy GodBoyfriend’s DOUGLAS ADAMS BIRTHDAY (42, of course), so missing that would throw the universe into some sort of improbability chaos…and we can’t have that, now, can we?
