1 - This past weekend I got my geek on and worked my second sci-fi/fantasy convention, Hal-Con which took place in Halifax's World Trade and Convention Centre.
2 - A little farther along my aisle was Alex Bledsoe, whose stacks of books started to disappear on Saturday, so I hurried over to snag an autographed copy of Dark Jenny before they were all gone.
3 - My friend and fellow writers' group member Shawna Romkey stopped by our table to see me and my partner-in-crime Lilly Cain who shared the table and a weekend of great conversation and laughs. We also remembered to chat with readers, believe it or not. Shawna's husband was one of the official sponsors of the event, and as a soon-to-be debut YA angel author herself, Shawna spent a whole day getting her own geek on.
4 - One of the best things about these conferences are the costumes and the little photography parties that erupt everywhere.
5 - Hal-Con had lots of amazing events like this concert band performance of superhero themes. I loved it, and so did the standing-room-only crowd.
6 - Harpies!
7 - Here is my Hal-Con partner Lilly Cain, who writes sci-fi erotica.
9 - Lots of great steampunk costumes, including this one with teacup and saucer holster, and 30s typewriter keys armband communicator.
10 - My husband's former co-worker showcased his comic store Giant Robot Comics where I bought a 'Shop Smart - Shop S-Mart' T-shirt.
11 - Was delighted to meet up with INNERSpace host Ajay Fry. My husband and I are longtime viewers of all things Space Channel.
12 - There were so many families all in costume, and all the kids were in a great mood. This little Princess Leia and her Princess Leia mom were stand-outs. She even had a teeny lightsabre.
13 - Thank you to all who stopped by our table to chat and pick up a book! It was great meeting you.
