Enjoyable Weekend at AlmaCon


My blog has been a little quiet the past week because I was getting ready to exhibit my novels at AlmaCon at Alma College in Alma, Michigan. I had a great time at the convention. I met lots of book lovers, talked writing, and sold a bunch of books all weekend.

Friday night I donated a paperback copy of Werelord Thal: A Renaissance Werewolf Tale to the charity auction. An elf (seriously she was an elf) informed me Saturday that Werelord Thal fetched a final bid of $20 at the auction. I'm so proud.

I realize people try to be loose with their money at a charity auction, but it's nice to know that my novel was able to contribute. Proceeds went to Relay for Life.

This is the second convention I've attended as a vendor and I very much enjoyed it. The cosplayers are splendid. Their creative expression is a delight to behold. I love costuming. It instantly boosts life energy and puts me in a good mood. Weirdly, I can believe there's hope for humanity when I see a grown man in a pink Care Bear suit. (A good choice for cold weather.) As all the cosplayers proove, Halloween just isn't enough anymore.
