Not only did I make it out to Orycon this weekend for the Writer’s Workshop with a couple of terrifically helpful authors David W. Goldman and Kristin Landon, but I also managed to scarf up a few of the latest titles by some of my favorite authors over at the Sci-Fi Author Fest at Powells Books at Cedar Hills Crossing with my fellow aspiring author pal, Liz B. Thirty Sci-Fi authors all in one place! The good folks at Powell’s even threw in a free book bag!
Yes, I needed that book bag. I picked up signed editions of Dean Wesley Smith’s Dead Money, Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s Dissappeared, Diana Pharaoh Francis’ Blood Winter, and Honeyed Words by J. A. Pitts, to name a few. It was neat to see so many authors and realizing that I’d met or knew a third of them. The Pacific Northwest is just teeming with great writers.
So glad I moved here.
