So come out and find me! I’m arriving on Thursday afternoon and leaving Sunday immediately after that signing to head up to my dad’s in Kentucky for a few days. I’m always happy to meet readers and fans, and I’ve got some space in between my scheduled activities, here and there.
I’m going to try and log off shortly, in order to pack and plan for travel, but I’ll still be around until this evening. Aric* and I will be leaving at Oh-Hell-No-thirty in the morning, and Lord knows what internet time or access I’ll have during the convention itself.
So I wrap this up with fond hopes to see some of you down in the ATL, and a superbly retouched photo from yesterday’s set, courtesy of LJ’s own Kakaze.
Have a good one, folks!
I’ll catch you on the other side.
* Yes, he’s coming too. For awhile we thought he wasn’t going to be able to join me until Saturday due to a work conflict, but it resolved itself and now we’ll be traveling in tandem after all.
