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 planning on hitting Baltimore next year. And if you tell me you're not going to be at that one people are going to wonder if maybe we're the same person. After all, no one's ever seen us together.
Of course, by that logic, I could just as easily be Abe Lincoln, Charo or Herve Villechaise.
Damn! I'm so torn about B'con this year. Have hotel reservations, but haven't registered for the con or booked a flight. It's damn expensive and I've been doing a lot to promote my book and, frankly, I'm running a little low on cash.
And the Great Lakes Booksellers Association tradeshow is on at the same time, in Chicago. No hotel expenses, no travel (beyond the $2 it costs to ride the El).
But I really want to go to B'con. Ugh. I probably will pass.
I've already registered for Baltimore, and will be there with bells on! And I'll be at ThrillerFest in NYC this summer.
