Bubonicon Update

This is the last day of Bubonicon.  It has been wonderful!  Authors present have included George R.R. Martin, Steven Gould, Connie Willis, Ian Tregiilis, Stephen Leigh (SJ Farrell), Carrie Vaughn, SM Stirling, Walter Jon Williams, Darynda Jones, Melinda Snodgrass, and many, many others.

I have learned a lot about writing both as craft and as business by listening to these people talk.  I am grateful for the opportunity.  It has made me both more confident about finishing the book and putting it out there and more concerned that there is still so much to be done!

We also had the opportunity to listen to John Picacio talk about his art.  He took us through the cover art process from when he is first contacted about a possible cover through the many sketches and pieces that go into production of the final image.  It was fascinating.

It has also been tremendous fun.  My husband and I are not into the costumes ourselves, but they were great!  Since the theme of this Bubonicon was Steampunk, there were a lot of really amazing costumes!

I am already looking forward to next year!
