Who's planning to make the trek to Anchorage for B-Con this year? It's a seven-hour, $700 flight from Dallas. I imagine there will be a heavy contigent from the West Coast, but what about from the rest of the Lower 48?
Well, I'm not Lower 48, but I am going. I love Alaska and I don't see how an author can skip it in their debut year. Plus, my theory is, because a lot of people won't go to B'con Alaska, 2008 will be crawling with authors itching to get on panels and it will be a zoo. I'd love to go to Baltimore, but I'm reserving a decision on it, as I think B'con 2008 will be insane.
And for me, there isn't much of a cost difference in those flights. I prefer smaller conventions.
